Cherished Number Plates Free Transfer Service
Learn about our free transfer facility
Let Plate Master do all the work for you! Simply send us your vehicle documents and we will make the necessary modifications to them, completing the transfer process, free of charge. When you have received your replacement documents you may attach the new number plates to your vehicle.
Should you opt for our transfer service during your purchase, we will request that you send us the following documents by post (we recommend you use recorded delivery for security reasons):
- The V5 Vehicle Registration Document (also known as the log book). The entire document will be required.
- The vehicle's MOT certificate if the vehicle is over 3 years old.
- Specify the expiry date of your vehicle's tax disc (do not post us the actual tax disc).
However, you can have your cherished number plate supplied on a certificate (for this we will not require your documents). This may be preferable if you want to purchase a cherished plate as a gift. When appropriate, the vehicle documents can be taken or posted to the nearest local DVLA office. If taken in person, the transfer process will be performed while you wait. Alternatively, you can post them to us along with the certificate we supplied you and we will complete the transfer. The choice is yours.
Note:- You have 12 months from the day the certificate was issued to assign the cherished number plate to a vehicle. This can be extended for a further 12 months for a standard DVLA fee of £25.
