Have you tried the DVLA web site? I would make that your first port of call...

I think that MAN might be reserved for the Isle of Man so wouldn't be available in the UK at all.

Only ever use DVLA - if they say it isn't available, it isn't available. When I bought my reg one of the agencies was still showing it as available a few weeks later - and they wanted well over £200 more than the DVLA did.

I have always used British Car Registrations. My reg M2 *** (my initials) cost just over £300 (inc. the transfer fee). We used them for all our company cars. They do great service, but I have heard of other companies charging an absolute fortune over the DVLA cost. Just proves that you have to shop around. :)

Hope you get the plate that you want :)

hi ho

you only pay £80 to keep it on retention when its not on a car ! and you get a nice green bit of paper saying that you own the reg number ! but when you transfer it to the car you dont pay another £80

hope this helps


like me :S
