Vehicle registration numbers01. Why we have vehicleregistration numbersVehicle registration numbers are a way of identifyingvehicles and are owned by the Secretary of State.They are allocated to vehicles as part of the process ofregistering and taxing vehicles.The registration number is given to the vehicle, not theregistered keeper. It will stay with the vehicle (until thevehicle is broken up, destroyed or exported permanentlyout of the country) unless the registered keeper appliesto take off and put it on another vehicle or on to aretention certificate (V778).02. Entitlement to a vehicle registrationnumberWhen you buy a personalised (private) registrationnumber, you buy the right to apply to put it on a vehicleregistered in your name or someone else’s name (thenominee). When you sell a vehicle the registrationnumber will stay with the vehicle unless you apply to takeit off and put it on another vehicle or on to a retentioncertificate (V778). For more information go bers03. Vehicle registration number formatThe current vehicle registration format was introduced on1 September 2001. It consists of: 2 letters (these refer to the region in the countrywhere a vehicle is first registered) 2 numbers (these tell you when it was issued) a space and 3 letters chosen at randomA list of DVLA memory tags and age identifiers is shownon pages 5 and 6.AgeidentifierRandom lettersDVLAmemory tag3

04. Displaying vehicle registrationnumbersVehicle registration numbers must be correctlydisplayed on number plates as set out in theRoad Vehicles (Display of Registration Marks)Regulations (as appropriate). These regulationsgovern how vehicle registration number plates aredesigned, manufactured and displayed.You cannnot rearrange or misrepresent the numbers andletters on a number plate to form names or words, so thatthey are hard to read. For example, fixing bolts to changeany of the letters or numbers. You could be fined up to 1,000 and your car will fail its MOT test if you drive withincorrectly displayed number plates. In some cases, theregistration number may be permanently withdrawn.If you misrepresent a vehicle registration number you will notget back any money that you have paid for the registrationnumber, or any other costs you have to pay.You can’t use a registration number to make your vehicleappear younger than it actually is.4
