  • What Happens If I Need To Tax or MOT My Vehicle Whilst The Transfer Is Being Processed?

    There are no problems if your vehicle needs to be Taxed or MOT.

    In the case of taxing your vehicle, you simply send the appropriate fee with a V10 form to us, ensuring that you state the old registration number on the application form. We will then take care of this for you.

    In the case of the new MOT, you must ensure the garage which MOTs the vehicle does it under the old mark. The DVLA’s system will update this automatically once complete.

    On average, registration transfers take two to three weeks. But our team at RegHunters endeavours to ensure every transfer is completed as quickly as possible. However, we will need you to help us, we can not start the process until we have received all of the required documents.

  • I’ve Brought A Registration From You, But It Is Still Appearing On Your Website. Why Is This?

    Unfortunately, it is unfeasible for us to update our website as soon as a plate is sold. Therefore in a lot of cases, plates appear on our site that have already gone. In these cases, the plates are not available and will not be sold again. If you are worried about this, you can give us a call, and we will manually update the record on our database.
