How to Gift a Personalised Number Plate

What makes the perfect gift? At Absolute Reg, we believe that the perfect is personalised for the person’s tastes, interests, and usage-abilities. A perfect gift reflects the effort you put in so that the recipient could feel valued and loved on their special days. A perfect gift is personal, novel, and wonderfully surprising and something people generally don’t think about giving as a gift - this is how to make the recipient feel extra special! A perfect gift is something that reminds them of you, the gift-giver, frequently, so that they always remember they are loved.

A Personalised Number Plate from Absolute Reg ticks all these boxes - it is the perfect gift.

Every person is different. There is no better way to express that than with a personalised number plate.

How to Buy an Absolute Reg Number Plate as a Gift

Purchasing a number plate as a gift is an effortless process.

The only information and details we would require is the name you wish for the registration plate to be registered in, and this is required to be the same as on the V5C (Log Book) of the vehicle.

This is known as the Nominee Name, and can be filled into the Nominee Name block at Checkout. If you are unsure of the name on the V5C or the person does not have a V5C, please leave this block blank.

You can also opt for our assisted transfer process. This means that the new owner can contact us upon receiving the gift, and we’ll take care of the rest. Just inform a team member at the time of purchase, and we’ll make a note on your account. We’re always happy to help!

If you do opt for our assisted transfer, the new reg plate owner simply needs to screw on the new registration plate upon receipt, and we’ll look after the rest!

We also dispatch the order to the billing address provided. This means that the recipient of the gift won’t need to receive the gift at their own address (we never ruin the surprise!). The gift can be sent to you so that you are able to wrap it if you choose and gift it to them personally on their special day.

What Occasions to Give a Number Plate as a Gift

Number Plates make incredible presents without even needing to put extra thought into the code on the plate itself. But, part of the appeal of buying a number plate as a gift is that you can personalise it and customise it to the specific occasion by just tinkering around a bit with the combination.

If you need ideas for which occasions to give a number plate as a gift, here are a few popular choices:

Birthday Presents

Absolute Reg Personalised Number Plates are popular birthday present choices. Whether it’s an 18th, a 21st, a 50th, or any other, we have millions of registration combinations for you to choose from.

DVLA personalised registrations can also be supplied and held on a v750 certificate for years, so they don’t even have to own a car yet, as they can still use their private number plate in the future. It is a mark of the driver that will stick with them for the future

What makes Absolute Reg DVLA personalised registrations, or private number plates, so popular is that they are dynamic - you can play around with months of the year, Roman Numerals, a specific date or number, ages, names, initials and more to find the perfect number plate for your loved one on their special birthday! 

To the perfect combination, simply head on over to our online super search bar on our website and either type in their name, initials, age, or any other special combination of letters and numbers.  

The perfect present is sure to pop up!

Anniversary Gifts

Coming up with novel and unique, novel anniversary presents every year can be quite difficult.

But anniversaries are milestones. They deserve to be acknowledged and cherished with a number plate that is...well...cherished!

So get your loved one a cherished number plate for your next anniversary!

Like birthdays, you can play around with a specific date, years, and names to make the number plate extra personalised!

Anniversaries with well-established connections are: 5th Wooden, 10th Tin, 15th Crystal, 20th China, 25th Silver, 30th Pearl, 40th Ruby, 50th Golden and 60th Diamond.

What’s great about an Absolute Reg Number Plate is that they’re a daily reminder to your Mum that you love her and appreciate all that she’s ever done for you.

What other Rules and Information do I need to know?

There are not many rules that need to be followed when buying private number plates and registrations. As always, the number plate you purchase cannot make the vehicle appear to be an age older than what it actually is.

Other than that, buying a gift through Absolute Reg is incredibly easy. 

In fact, the only information we would require is the name you wish for the registration plate to be registered in, and this is required to be the same as on the V5C (Log Book) of the vehicle. 

If you opt for our assisted transfer process, you can simply get the new owner to contact us upon receiving the gift, and we’ll take care of the rest. Just inform a team member at the time of purchase, and we’ll make a note on your account. 

If you do opt for our assisted transfer, the new reg plate owner simply needs to screw on the new registration plates, and we’ll look after the rest!

You can also apply for finance or credit for registration plates that you’d like to purchase that exceed your budget. Paying on credit allows you to purchase a number plate with zero minimum deposit and pay over a 48 month payment window. You can apply for credit at the checkout screen. Here you will also see the amount you need to pay for VAT.

Absolute Reg, as a recognised reseller of DVLA registrations, also offers a price match guarantee, which means that if you find the same personalised number plate elsewhere, we will either match the price or beat it by £5 where we can. We pride ourselves in having the best prices in the industry. Which means you get the registration plates of your dreams as well as the industry-best customer service offered by Absolute Reg!
