The DVLA have advised us that there is now no legal requirement to issue a replacement MOT Certificate following a successful Personalised Registration application/transfer.
DVLA are committed to reducing paperwork and have removed the requirement to replace MOT certificates will allow for quicker processing of applications received and will improve current turnaround times to customers. They have removed the requirement for customers to submit their MOT certificates as the DVLA will conduct an electronic check of the vehicle record.
DVLA will continue to update the DVSA database to ensure MOT data held for each vehicle is correct. You would be able to check the status of the vehicle by using the Vehicle Enquiry Service available on GOV.UK. The MOT Certificate will remain valid even though the registration number will be different until its current expiry date.
The DVLA are hoping to implement this change from 9th March with the introduction of Retention Online. Further information on this service will be issued shortly.
