Putting personalised number plates on a CAT C watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi Guys,

    First query

    I just wanted to find out if it's possible to put a private number plate on a category c vehicle?
    the car has been fully repaired and roadworthy
    I am thinking to buy a personalised plate on the DVLA Website

    Second query:

    Also, if I CAN'T add a personalised number plate on a vehicle for it being a CAT C...Can I change the original number plate it is on now to another random original number plate?

    like for example pretend if my number plate was GR57UJP
    would it be possible to contact the DVLA so they can randomly choose another number plate on a 57 plate? for instance: LR57NSZ

    Sounds weird but I am a bit superstitious

    thanks in advance

    what is category C vehicle?

    I don't see why not as you are putting the plate on it afterwards so it shouldn't be an issue. The DVLA are the ones you need to talk to though.

    So long as the vehicle is not on a Q plate or the numberplate you're attempting to put on the vehicle would make it appear newer than the date it was first registered i.e trying to put a 55 plate on a 51 plate car, then you can put your numberplate on.
How are you feeling in the run-up to Results Day 2018?
