You can only put a number onto a vehicle of equal age or newer. To put it simply – You can make a new car look older but not an old car look newer. For example, if you buy a new style plate with the registration AA63 ABC – you can only put that on a car registered new on or after the 1st September 2013.
Details of age suitability will be displayed on the Order Summary page. By continuing you agree you have understood the age requirements of the vehicle you intend to display the registration on.

Services Offered By Us
24- If the customer requires us to assign the registration we will send a follow up email to request the relevant documentation. If this documentation is not received within 3 weeks of request we will then revert to the option of the buyer assigning the registration themselves. In this case we will send the V750 document and details on how to assign the registration online or by post.
If a customer chooses to assign the registration themselves they should do so by the assignment date on the V750 – usually 10 years from date of purchase.
25- Before we can supply the number plates the buyer agrees to send documentation as required by law to prove their identity. We will ask for any documentation after the registration has been successfully registered. The number plates must not be altered in any way as to change the layout or appearance of the registration.
Completion of Sale
26- The sales is deemed complete once the buyer receives their new V5C (vehicle registration certificate) with the relevant registration number displayed.
