We usually get a lot of questions around buying a private registration as a gift, below we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked:

Can I purchase a private number plate as a gift?

Yes, of course. Absolute Reg can supply all registrations on a certificate of entitlement which are valid for 10 years, this means you don’t even require to have to assign the number plate straight to a vehicle.

Is the DVLA transfer fee payable even if we don’t have a vehicle?

Yes, the DVLA transfer fee is payable at the point of purchase for all our registration marks. This means when you come to assign the registration at a later date the transfer fee is already paid, you will not have to pay the transfer fee again.

If I pay for the fully managed transfer service, does this mean the registration is transferred immediately?

No, the fully managed transfer fee is valid for the lifetime of the registration. When you are ready to assign the number plate simply follow the instructions you receive via email and your registration would be transferred within 7 working days.

What information do I require to purchase as a gift?

The only information which Absolute Reg require in order for you to complete a purchase is the name of the registered keeper, this is usually the name of the owner of the vehicle.

This is entered during the checkout process under the ‘Nominee Name Field’.

Absolute Reg require a full payment in order to reserve the registration. We have teamed up with Honey Combe Finance to help budget and offer competitive finance packages. You can select finance as a payment method as you proceed through the checkout process.
