IMPORTANT -Numbers on retention in UK

Post by GOY189 » Fri Nov 22, 2019 4:20 pm

Cherished numbers held on retention certificates
This relates to a DVLA consultation exercise in 2017 that has resulted in changes to their processes. This change was not notified directly to clubs
Forms V750 (certificate of entitlement) or V778 (retention document) allow you to keep a cherished number, but must be renewed periodically. If your V750 or V778 has expired, act now to ensure you retain the cherished number.

The DVLA website states:-

You can buy the right to use a private registration number again if you got the V750 or V778 before 9 March 2015 and it expired on or after 1 May 2011.

You have until 18 December 2019 to apply - DVLA will not accept applications after this date.

It costs £25 for each year that the certificate has expired. Any time under 1 year costs the same as a full year, for example if your certificate expired 2 years 1 month ago, you’ll have to pay for 3 years (£75).
Fill in the form on the V750 or V778. Send it with the fee to the address on the form.

The bottom line is act now to renew expired V750 or V778 forms or your cherished plate will be lost forever.
Further details are on the gov.uk website
