NFDA give DVLA warning over Cherished Transfers delaysBack

nfdaThe DVLA have announced an IT solution for registering new vehicles with cherished numbers, will be available in the first quarter of next year in time for the plate-change month. Recently, Stephen Latham from the NFDA was privileged to one of the first from the motor industry to hear how the new system will operate.

Primarily the new online system will work in two stages, firstly a process to remove the Registration Number from the existing vehicle and allocate a age-related number plate to replace it on the old vehicle, this process will confirm it has happened and allocate a retention number that will be useable to tax the new vehicle on the AFRL system. The next stage is to register the new vehicle on the AFRL system with the retention number allocated, therefore the whole transaction can be carried out on the same day and when this system is implemented the normal transfer will reduce from £105 (£80 + £25) to £80.

About a month or so later an similar system will be introduced for used car sales allowing the transfer and taxation to be handled in one day on line.
