Say i sell my car which has a private plate on, when I sell it and add the new keepers details on the logbook, would I use the private plate logbook, or original logbook?

Are you wanting to sell it with the plate? If not, pay the fee to put the plate onto retention and then use the new logbook they send you.

What if I put the plate on retention and then sold the car on the same day? What logbook would I use to sell the car?

I think you'd need to wait for the new logbook to arrive. Phone DVLA to confirm.

Should only take a few days if you do it online, so get it sorted a few days before you intend to sell the car.
