Cherished DVLA Registration Plates

DVLA Cherished Reg Plates

Personalised number plates must conform to government regulations, and our customers can be assured that every single registration plate on our website will meet DVLA requirements. There are four types of DVLA cherished plates; current style, dateless, suffix and prefix, and whatever style you decide on you can be rest assured that it is a legitimate number plate that conforms to the legal requirements.

Private Number Plates recommends that our customers only deal with vehicle registration companies that follow the strict rules and regulations set out by the DVLA, otherwise substantial fines and registration withdrawals can occur. It’s important to know that a personalised reg must be assigned to a vehicle that is (or is about to be) registered in mainland Britain (not including Northern Ireland). 

Once a personalised registration is assigned to a vehicle, it can then be transferred to another vehicle, so long as the transfer meets government requirements. When you purchase DVLA cherished plates you can only assign it to a vehicle that’s the same age or older than the registration. For example a 2014 plate cannot be put on a ‘12’ plate car. This is because a new reg on an older car can mis-represent the vehicle’s age.

Decorative fonts are not allowed to be used on a vehicle registration plate, and only a standard font or a 3D variation of the standard font can be used because these comply with the DVLA regulations. You are allowed to add a UK or EU flag on the side of the registration plate, yet any other symbols and emblems are not authorised.

Size and spacing can also be an issue if you do not buy your DVLA cherished plates from a professional company that complies with government requirements.  Private Number Plates staff are well equipped in terms of understanding and keeping up with the latest rules, so feel free to contact us if you have any queries.
