I didn't get it at first either.. then I realised it's on a Zafira GSI, so it's A GSI BUS (but not mis-spaced etc) cool

Driving to work this morning behind an Evoque with the registration 101 X, which with the reg plate font read I0I X.
I laughed, out loud. X

Sold in 1995 for £4,800 is 8 OB

The plate was then bought by a friend of dad's in the early 2000s (from a bloke, in a bar, in Cyprus :-)) for £15K. He then sold the plate, again privately, earlier this year... for quite a bit more!

Apologies if this is inappropriate for the thread but there are some quite knowledgable people in here. Is these any process to follow if I'm interested in purchasing a reg that's assigned to a vehicle I no longer believe to be around?

The reg I'm after is assigned to a 1983 Bedford van that hasn't been taxed since 1997 so realistically I'm expecting doesn't exist anymore.

It probably won't come as a surprise to you, but everything points to the chances being somewhere between slim and zero, I'm afraid.

As per the rules currently in force, the only way you could acquire the rights to assign that registration number is by transferring it off the Bedford.

The only way you could do that is if you had both the vehicle and its valid paperwork in your possession - and even then the transfer process would require the vehicle to be complete, in a driveable condition, with its constituent parts matching DVLA records.

It was probably scrapped a very long time ago, despite still showing up on a DVLA search - and if not scrapped, then there's likely very little of it left!

So your success will boil down to: the Bedford, well preserved, is kept somewhere by an owner who you manage to track down and persuade to sell it to you.

That might sound unlikely, but I note that you also don't say what the number is. That could matter. If it is a "real good" plate then the chances might be less slim - the owner could be sitting on it.

I speak from experience, having just transferred a dateless 'number one' plate off a 1950s vehicle which hadn't been taxed or MOTd since 1995.

Before any of the PH cynics chime in, the car was in good condition (having been well stored all those years) and the transfer process - which included a routine DVLA inspection - was all above board and went without a hitch!

Your only other prospect of success is if there is a change to the current policy which strictly prevents the DVLA selling a plate which has previously been issued. In which case you could request it is auctioned.

IMHO
trying too hard, the cut down & shaped plate spoils it.

Yes, I agree, cut down would be ok but the angle cut looks wrong.
