Yes the DVLA are a pain, Im picking my car up today and I can't wait!
Anyway whilst negotiating a deal for my Q3 I requested that I have my current private reg put onto retention as I was wanting to have a new plate on my new car, the garage paid the retention fee and dealt with all the paper work as part of the part exchange. The garage have even made up some new plates so when I hand in my part exchange I don't have to do a thing other than drive away with my new car.
The annoying thing is have sat in the car,it has the personalised plates fitted and the day i was supposed to pick it up was a lovely spring day,now it will probably rain for the next month. Edited by: Steve Goose
Don't really understand above plates problem - I have on order a Q3 and wanedmy current vehicle's (personal plates )put on it. I merely paid £DVLA 125 for the retention of my plates. Within 2 days I received a new tax disc with a new reg number for my existing car, Also received the relevant document allolwing me to remove my personal plates and have new reg plates made and fitted. Took the form to the Audi dealer who is now ina position to make, fit plates and tax vehicle.Really good service from DVLA.Mal
Only cost me £105, that's to remove from old car and put it on reten.
Then few months time I'll stick my plate on......once everyone knows its a 13 plate lol.
A few different ways on doing it but I always do it like this.
