DVLA number plates

When, retaining, purchasing or transferring a number plate there is likely to be a payable fee to the DVLA.

Below is a brief guide for these fees- all correct at the time of writing (2008) and none of which are subject to VAT.

Assignment fee £80

To transfer or assign a number plate the DVLA will charge you £80.

If you wish to retain a number plate from a vehicle then the DVLA will charge you this £80 fee- which is effectively paying in advance for when you eventually assign the number plate to a vehicle.

Refund of assignment fee £80

If your entitlement to a number plate (form V750) expires or you simply do not wish to keep or transfer it then you are entitled to a refund of the £80 assignment fee.

Extension of entitlement £25

When a number plate is held on retention it is only valid for 12 months- at this time the entitlement period will need to be extended

Add or change a nominee £25

If you wish to change the details of the nominee on your retention document then you will incur a £25 fee. To find out how to add or change a nominee please refer to our retention section.
