Private (personalised) number plates

6. Give a private number to someone else

You can put your private number on someone else’s vehicle either online or by post. Once it’s on there, they have the option to take the number off.

Online

Assign your private number to someone else’s vehicle. You’ll need to enter details from that vehicle’s log book (V5C).

DVLA will send a replacement log book for the vehicle, but with the new private number assigned to it.

By post

Fill in section 2 of your V778 or V750, and post it to DVLA along with the log book (V5C) for the vehicle you want to put the private number on. The address is on the form.

DVLA will send a replacement log book for the vehicle, but with the new private number assigned to it.

If the nominee dies

The person who has the right to use the private number can change the nominee by sending a letter and the V750 or V778 to DVLA Personalised Registrations.
