NZR Advice wanted: Private reg

Hi All,


My GF's father had a private reg (he's passed away). He took the car it was registered to abroad to Spain and basically left it there in a friends garage to rot away. There's nothing left of the car now but we'd like to get the reg back in the UK. Initial discussion with DVLA have indicated that the car has to be in this country and we have to prove it to allocate the reg to another car (?)


Can this be correct?? The DVLA reckon the reg is theirs if we don't prove the car is here and belongs to my GF.....surely we can just transfer the reg, they can't possibly send someone out to check....can they???

This is an interesting dilema.


Yes, technically DVLA own the number, they have the right to withdraw it from you.


I think I'm right in saying that to transfer a cherished number from car to car. the car that currenly bears the number must in fact hold a current MOT, the rules are different for numbers held on retention.


Have a look on the DVLA site for more details.

Thanks for that. Looks like it's lost then. Ah well, that's the price you pay for fun in the sun I guess...
