Yes. It's possible to sell your vehicle and keep your private number plate as a retained plate. Please let us know your vehicle has a private plate you intend to keep when you first speak to us.
The quickest way to retain your private registration plate is to contact the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). You will need to complete the application form here.
Once you have completed the online form, it typically takes three to five working days to be sent your new V5C. We advise that you do this before selling your vehicle on Motorway.
If you are unable to complete the DVLA's online form, you will need to complete a postal application, which can take 6-8 weeks to process.
