    Private Reg Plate

    Hi there. I'm looking to purchase 2 private number plates as presents. I know there are loads of sites out there including the DVLA (expensive) but are there any sites out there than will scan the top sites and look for the best deal ! If not, there's an idea for someone to claim commission, like moneysupermarket etc.

    If one is not available, from experience where's the cheapest to go ?

    Thanks

    Rory

    I think that you will find that the cheaper websites are so because they dont include the registration/trasfer fee (not sure what is called - about £70/80) ??
    if you take the number plate to check out you will see that they will add a fee and VAT making it more expensive than the DVLA webiste which on the other hand the price displayed is the price you pay and there is no more to pay after that.

    your right but even with the VAT / transfer fee, a lot are still cheaper than the DVLA.

    ive just bought a private reg from dvla and they were spot on, only paid advertised price only extra was to get the plates made up:thumbsup:

    where then, you obviously know more than me :w00t:

    I got my wife one for £20 off fleabay plus £80 transfer fee plus £18 for plates made up

    I agree with ericc78uk - i bought my huibbie's plate from DVLA and only cost me £250. Only extra was to get the plates made up. Try them - you never know!:thumbsup:

    can't remember the exact site (one reg was cheaper) but take a look at [url]www.newreg.co.uk[/url] - S17NOL is £1 cheaper than DVLA. Not exactly a big saving but the other plate is saving £15. DVLA is probably a better bet though in fairness.

    Dvla is best, and you know that its legitamate.They are also very helpfull in my experience with them

    I have lots of friends that got plates from eBay. These were Irish plates (so no date on them) so you can't get them from DVLA. Depends what you're after, of course.

    hiya try plates4less.com i used them last year for my better halfs plate and they were very impressive, th epaperwork was spot on, we paid a little more for them to handle th etranfer but it was worth it

    have you tried ebay?. im selling one at the moment on there, what are you looking for? or have you tried advertising in the local press

    Why on earth would you pay a premium to have S17NOL on your plate?

    Trying not to sounds stupid here, but arnt there a lot of companies passing off fake plates as the real deal?

    I would stick to the dvla with this sort of thing..

    I do agree with you budgieblues, DLVA is the best source. Would you please let me know another legitimate company next to DLVA
