Quick Help

What is the total cost of buying a number plate from DVLA?

All online / telesales registrations include VAT and the £80 assignment fee. This means there is nothing else to pay except for the costs of having the actual physical plates made up. NO HIDDEN CHARGES! This applies to registrations sold from our online/telesales business.

The prices advertised for registrations being offered for sale at our auctions / timed auction sales are reserve prices. Bidding will start from these prices and exclude the assignment fee, VAT and buyer's premium.
