Personalised registration laws change

first_imgOperators who have personalised registrations on their coaches, buses or minibuses are promised lower fees and a better service, thanks to changes to the law this month.The law has changed to reduce the fee to retain a personalised registration from 105 to 80. This will apply to both paper and online transactions.This change sees the removal of the 25 fee currently in place to renew the retention of a vehicle registration number on an annual basis.The renewal period is also extended to 10 years. There is another added benefit: The fee is being removed to add or change nominee details.Says the DVLA: “Customers will see a significant reduction in turnaround times following the introduction of this service.“DVLA systems will be updated in real time and the service will provide instant confirmation that the application has been successful.”In future, the vehicle registration certificate (V5C) with the replacement registration number and retention certificate will be issued by post to the registered keeper on DVLA’s records. There will no longer be a replacement MOT certificate issued to the keeper, as the original remains valid.Also, the DVLA has launched its online ‘Take a Registration Number off a Vehicle’ service, which allows keepers and dealers to apply to retain a number online.The new online service went live on Monday (23 March).Visit:
