Private (personalised) number plates

5. Renew your private number

You must renew your right to use your private (personalised) number every 10 years if it’s not being used on a vehicle. If you got your private number before 2015, you must renew it more often - check your V750 or V778 document.

You must renew your right to use a private number before it expires.

Renew your V750 certificate of entitlement or V778 retention document

You’ll get a reminder letter or email if you’re not using a private number and your right to use it is about to run out.

You can renew it for up to 10 years, and it doesn’t cost anything to do.

Renew your V750 online

You can renew your V750 by creating a DVLA personalised registration account or by using your existing account.

Renew by post

Fill in the form on the V750 or V778.

Send the V750 or V778 to the address on the form.

Replace a lost or stolen V750 or V778

You can send a letter to ask for a replacement if you’re the person with the right to use the number (the ‘grantee’). If you’re the grantee your name will be on the V778 or V750.

It’ll take around 3 to 4 weeks for the new V750 or V778 to arrive.
