How do I get a number plate made up?
To have a number plate made up for your vehicle, you must go to a (registered number plate supplier).
What will I need?
You'll need to go to the registered supplier with:
1. Proof of your entitlement to the plates, which could be any one of the following:
- Vehicle registration certificate (V5C or V5CNI) - these are the preferred documents
- The new keeper supplement (V5C/2 or V5C/2NI) of the registration certificate
- Certificate of entitlement (V750 or V750NI)
- Retention document (V778) (not applicable in Northern Ireland)
- Vehicle tax renewal reminder or Statutory Off Road Notification (V11 or V11NI)
- Temporary registration certificate (V379 or V379NI)
- Authorisation certificate (V948) with an official stamp from the DVLA, DVA or Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA)
- A letter of authorisation from a fleet operator (including lease or hire company) (England and Wales only); the letter must quote the document reference number from the registration certificate, not the vehicle identification number
2. Proof of identity, which could be any one of the following:
- Driving licence, whether or not issued in the UK (with or without a photo)
- An electricity, gas, water supplier, landline telephone, council tax or rates bill issued within the last 6 months

- A passport
- A national identity card issued by the government of a state or territory other than the UK
- A debit or credit card issued by a bank or building society
