Registration plates can be transferred between vehicles provided the recipient vehicle satisfies the DVLA's Transfer and Retention Scheme. Generally, the recipient vehicle must not be older than the year associated with the registration mark. You cannot make a vehicle appear younger. In addition, the receiving vehicle must have current road tax and a valid MOT (see tax and MOT exception).
