Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Default Registering car in UK - DVLA

Hello All
Just bought an Italian VW. Need to get UK registration.
It is a 1971, so I'm guessing it will have a date relevant number.

My question is...
Do you get to have some say in the registration number or can you only take what you are given?

Thanks for the advice.

This ^

Assuming your paperwork is all correct, they will just issue the next age-related plate available.

It's the DVLA, there's a good chance the paperwork will be for a 1982 Ford Cortina, that's been scrapped twice.
