I DO IT MYSELF? back
course privately placing an advert in a newspaper yourself is
possible but please read some of our clients comments
from their own experiences:-
I had more calls from the advertising canvassers of other newspapers
than I had from prospective purchasers.
agreed a price with a chap who sounded genuine enough but didnt
come up with the money, totally wasting my time!
found that advertising once was not enough so we took a 4 week
discounted advert which was quite expensive. The registration
still didnt sell and now it owes us another £175.
The trouble is we need to sell it quickly because we are emigrating
next month. Which is the best place to advertise? Have we got
the price too high? or is everyone just on holidays? It is August
found a buyer and we agreed the price, then he asked me How
do we meet to do the transfer and exchange the cash? I
was so glad you came to my rescue! I didnt have a clue,
thank you VRM!
was thinking about selling privately but then I thought, do
I want to send copies of my personal documents to complete strangers?
the seller, I found it very difficult to conduct the price negotiations
in an objective business-like fashion. My buyer gave me a hard
luck story that I was foolish enough to believe to bring the
price down and when he came to collect the transfer certificate
he arrived in a brand new top of the range BMW!
I placed the advert, found a buyer and got the transfer forms
from my local VRO but they were so busy in the office they didnt
have time to explain how to use them. I followed the notes,
sent back my transfer application with the required cheque then
waited a week only to find that they would not allow the transfer
because my buyers car was too old. I wish Id come
to you first!

Register Of Number Plate Suppliers
1 January 2003 all number plate suppliers in England and
Wales will be required by law to register their details
with DVLA*. From that date a business will be unable to
trade as a supplier unless it is registered.
A Number Plate Supplier is someone whose business consists
wholly or partly of supplying number plates i.e. finished
plates that incorporate the registration mark of a vehicle
registered with DVLA*. Manufacturers, distributors, assemblers,
motor factors, motor dealers and retail outlets including
on-line retailers could fall within the scope of the scheme
provided that they supply the finished product. Motor
dealers who refit their used vehicles for sale with replacement
number plates would be classed as number plate suppliers.
If a business supplies only blank plates or other components
or materials it will not be required to register. People
who manufacture plates solely for their own use, rather
than supply to third parties, are not within the scope
of the legislation e.g. a fleet operator who assembles
plates and fits them only to vehicles in his fleet. As
he does not supply the plates, he is not a supplier for
the purposes of the legislation. However, if the business
supplies plates for any other purpose eg for an employee's
private use, it is regarded as a Number Plate Supplier.
exempt include :
Number Plate Suppliers who only supply plates for newly
Number plate suppliers who do not sell plates in England
Manufacturers of number plate components who do not sell
Businesses that assemble plates for their own use or fit
them to their own vehicles but do not supply them to anyone
else. (A motor trader who fits new plates to used vehicles
to sell on is not exempt because the plates are supplied
along with the vehicle).
with the DVLA*,DVLC on behalf of our clients, we are registered
to supply license plates, transfer personalised number
plates, personal registration marks, cherished number
plates, custom number plates, private number plates
can be found on the DVLA* register of number plate suppliers
