How to Transfer a Private Registration to a New Vehicle: A Simple Guide
Transferring a private registration might seem daunting, but with a little guidance, it's a breeze! Whether you're a car enthusiast or just love that personal touch, our step-by-step guide, sourced from gov.uk, will walk you through the process.
Step 1: Gather Your Documents
First things first, make sure you have:
- V5C registration certificate (logbook) for both vehicles.
- V317 form - the essential application to transfer or retain a vehicle registration number.
Step 2: Ensure Both Vehicles are Eligible
Your cars must be:
- Registered with the DVLA.
- Available for a potential inspection.
- Either taxed or declared off the road within the last five years.
Step 3: Fill Out the V317 Form
This form has two main sections. If you're looking for a direct transfer, focus on the section about transferring the number to a new vehicle.
Step 4: Handling the Transfer Fee
There's an £80 fee involved. Ensure you check current rates on gov.uk to stay updated.
Step 5: Mail it Off!
Send your V317 form, both V5Cs, and the fee to the DVLA at:DVLA Personalised Registrations,
Step 6: Patience is a Virtue
Give the DVLA up to two weeks to process. They'll send back new V5Cs for both vehicles.
Step 7: Show Off That New Plate!

Step 8: Inform Your Insurer
Always keep them in the loop about changes to your vehicle.
