I am looking at trading in my current car for another and taking up their option of finance to get a £500 deposit paid on top and two services free for doing so. My current car has a personal plate which is still on the car currently, but I want to transfer when I buy the new one. I don't need to finance the deal, but as there is cash and service incentive then why not ? My plan is to cancel the finance within 14 days as I believe I still get the deposit and the 2 free services. Will my plate swap complete within this time and /or will this make it a bit messy ? Any possible pitfalls re HP company/garage and dvla ?
