Yes you can keep u r personal number plates, there is a coloum in DMV form where you can put u r perefence for number plates.

Yes. Most states allow you to transfer your vanity plates to your new vehicle if it is in the same weight class.

Of Course. It's YOUR number plate. You will have to pay a fee to the DVLA, but you will be able to use it on another car.

of course you can just get it transferred to your new car through the DVLA it will cost though.

with each set of personal plates you need two sets of documents.

One set says that you own the rights to the personal plates.

The other set assigns those plates to your car. You can't use the personal plates until this second set of paperwork is OK'd by DVLA.

If your car is written off you still own the rights to the personal number plates all you have to do is contact DVLA and have them registered to your new car.

Drive carefully!

WHY DON'T YOU JUST CALL YOUR LOCAL DMV OFFICE, THEY WILL BE ABLE TO ANSWER ANY AND ALL OF YOUR QUESTIONS AND AT THE SAME TIME YOU WILL BE GETTING THE CORRECT ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION.

If all else fails, get those numbers as a vanity plate.

Why is everyone assuming you're British? Did I miss something?

Sure, you paid for them. When I bought my last car, I kept the license plate from the old one. It wasn't a special vanity plate, but it was a plate where a portion of the proceeds goes to the horse industry.
