Dvla Registration Assignment Notebook

You can put your private number on someone else’s vehicle either online or by post. Once it’s on there, they have the option to take the number off.


Assign your private number to someone else’s vehicle. You’ll need to enter details from that vehicle’s log book (V5C).

DVLA will send a replacement log book for the vehicle, but with the new private number assigned to it.

By post

Fill in section 2 of your V778 or V750, and post it to DVLA along with the log book (V5C) for the vehicle you want to put the private number on. The address is on the form.

DVLA will send a replacement log book for the vehicle, but with the new private number assigned to it.

If the nominee dies

The person who has the right to use the private number can change the nominee by sending a letter and the V750 or V778 to DVLA Personalised Registrations.

It’s now quicker than ever to take off or put a registration number on a vehicle online.

You can now download the electronic V948 proof of entitlement certificate (eV948) to the registration number immediately.

What does this mean for customers?

You’ll no longer need to wait for the vehicle registration certificate V5C (log book) to arrive in the post.

Downloading the eV948 will allow you to get your number plate made up quicker with your nearest registered number plate supplier (RNPS).

What else do you need to know?

The eV948:

  • is valid for 3 working days from the date of issue - an electronic timestamp will be printed on the certificate
  • can only be used once
  • needs to be supported with all the necessary supporting documents when you go to get your number plate made up at the RNPS

The RNPS won’t accept a certificate that’s expired. If the certificate expires you’ll need to wait for the V5C (log book) to arrive in the post.
