Hello all. My mother is coming to the last 3 months of her lease, she herself does not drive, I am her driver and this will be the second vehicle we have had on the scheme. For the next vehicle I wanted to get her a private number plate as with her various issues she is also partially sighted and cannot tell the difference between vehicles but can read text if it is large, in this case a number plate at 1 meter distance. I have found a plate that would be easy for her to identify at close range as it contains most of the characters of her surname.
I am wondering, can I purchase the registration beforehand? Does the documentation need to be in her name? One of the number plate websites said the registration documents need to be in Motability’s name before it is even transferred to a Motability vehicle not sure if that is accurate.
Has anyone been through this, were the registration mark has been used for the first time with a Motability car?
Many thanks for any and all responses.
