    Swapping private number plate

    Hi,

    Has anybody purchased a used car from a dealership recently and managed to have their private plate switched over from their old car (which will be part-ex) on the same day?

    I thought it was possible but salesman thinks otherwise.

    I did have a quick look on google but couldn't find an answer.

    Thanks

    Not on the same day. Typically you have to put your plate on retention and then wait until you have the new vechicle log book before you can apply to have your number transferred over.

    It might be different if its a new vechicle, but you will still need to put yours on retention first.

    Whoever does not know how to hit the nail on the head should be asked not to hit it at all.

    Yep - this is all true. Bought a new car two weeks ago and still waiting for new log book to come through.

    Think this only possible on a new vehicle, too late in the day to double check.

    The only way to do it the same hour, never mind day, if both vehicles are registered in the same name.
    Then it's easy online, I did it so it must be 👍
