General questions on private number plates
What is car cloning?
Vehicle cloning is when someone puts your car registration number on theirs, and passes their car as if it's yours. Usually, they will go so far as to pick a car that's the same model and colour as yours.
They are basically stealing the identity of your car to hide the real identity for one which may be stolen. That will then make it look completely legal.

My car is a write-off. What happens to my private number plate?
Check this guide and act quickly before you lose the registration number.
No one likes to think about the possibility of having an motor accident. But we all know they happen. And sometimes the damage to the vehicle is not economical to repair. So the car is declared as written off.
If you have an accident, your car insurance company may decide to write off your car. That means that your insurer has decided your vehicle is beyond economical repair. The car insurance company then agrees a pay-out with you. Once that’s settled, your insurance company now owns the vehicle. And the company can dispose of the vehicle as they wish – either by selling it as salvage or having it scrapped.
If your car is sold on, the new purchaser could repair it and put it back on the road.....
