Hi Good Morning Everyone.
We are due to change our current vehicle next week ( 26th onwards)
When we picked up our current car we notified the dealer beforehand and he had our plates assigned to the new car, the car we were returning already had the plates the DVLA assigned on it when we picked that up so it was just a matter of taking ours off and putting those back on .
However we have only ever had our plates on this car , can anyone advise what’s best to do please, I know we need to put ours on retention first but how then do we get new plates made up as I think you need the logbook etc .
Would it be possible to call and retain the plates a day or two prior to picking up the new car as you have a 3 day window to remove them that way we wouldn’t have to get new plates made up .
I don’t want to hold up the handover of our new car , I was given an early termination of our current car due to my needs changing dramatically so this orders only been done last week hence the short window here .
