DVLA Registered Number Plate Suppliers

To sell number plates legally, organisations are required to be registered with the DVLA. The DVLA Register of Number Plate Suppliers (RNPS) exists to prevent the sale and use of number plates that do not conform to the necessary legal requirements and to ensure that all registrations sold are registered correctly. You can verify our registration with the DVLA here. All registrations purchased can be provided on a certificate issued by the DVLA.

After purchasing a private reg from us, we provide a DVLA certificate within around five working days along with simple transfer instructions so you can transfer your new registration to your vehicle the same day. The physical number plates (if you opt for them) are dispatched directly from our manufacturer. You can also keep the number for up to 10 years on the original certificate, prior to assigning to a vehicle.

Registered Suppliers Of DVLA Personalised Registrations

The DVLA keep CarReg updated with over 50,000,000 available unissued registrations.
