Number plate retention
number plate retention scheme is a way of
holding your entitlement to a car registration number plate without having it
on a vehicle. Retention must be renewed each 12 months if the
car registration number plate is not transferred to a vehicle- this costs £25.
DVLA will write to you to
remind you to renew the retention but it is your
responsibility to apply for the extension- if you donít
apply you lose the private number plate- itís as simple as that.
