I’m selling my car. Can I keep my private number plate?

The simple answer is….. yes.

If you are selling your vehicle, you can hold on to the registration number even if you don’t have another vehicle to assign it to straightaway. You can then either…

  • Assign it to another vehicle later or
  • Sell the registration number.

The DVLA allows you to retain the registration number on a retention certificate. This is known as the DVLA Retention Scheme.
