Current vehicle registration law states a private 14 plate  registration cannot be placed on an older car i.e 2008 plate vehicle as it gives the impression the vehicle is newer than suggested.

However, a private 14 plate registration can be applied to a 2019 or a 2020 plate vehicle even though the vehicle is newer than the registration plate suggests.

The private registration laws need to be reformed to allow this to take place and make way with this condescending legislation.

I am calling on the British Government Secretary  of State for Transport Rt Hon Grant Shapps, DVLA and DVSA to reform this law to bring it in line and for common sense to prevail.

Hundreds and thousands of  motorists in the U.K will be in this same position, despite owning a private registration  and being unable to apply it to an older registered vehicle. This beggars belief, as the same plate can be applied on to a newer vehicle.

Please abolish or reform this legislation  in order to simplify  and enable motorists who have dormant private registrations to be used on any vehicles regardless of age. Afterall, these are private registrations and should not be confused with the age of any vehicle.  The British public has paid good hard earned money plus VAT to purchase private registrations only then to fall foul of the current absurd regulations. 

Yes there are ageless registration plates available, that can be purchased and placed on any vehicle regardless of age, but these are more hefty and steep in price. Furthermore, in these difficult financial times, with increasing debt and austerity, not many people have disposable income to spend on ageless plates and have to go with the cheaper alternative, which is to purchase an age related private registration plate for their vehicle.

Please support me in this matter.

Kind regards,

 

Zak
