You can never ask enough, especially when there are large sums of money at stake and getting a personalised number plate is in fact often a very costly transaction. This is exactly why there is no question that should be left unanswered and there is no question which should be deemed unimportant. In this business, where customers often end up paying well more than they would pay for a car, everything should be cleared and transparent. This is why we continue answering to some frequently asked questions this time around.
The three safest options for buying a personal plate include the following:
The prices on the DVLA website include VAT and the additional DVLA fees already. Oftentimes there are also discounts on a couple of number personalised plates as well. The prices are non-negotiable as they are all fix prices.
It’s important to note that prices at auction will not include VAT and other fees. Therefore be mindful when bidding as you may have a pretty unpleasant surprise coming up with VAT and additional costs added to the sum you are to pay for your personalised number plate.
It’s essential to note that you only buy the right to hold that specific registration number to be featured on a number plate. The actual plates featuring this combination will have to be done for an extra charge by a registered number plate supplier. This way it’s ensured the personalised number plate is up to par with the standards. Note that upon request, dealers will supply you with the actual number plate for an additional fee.
