BOSSREG - Number One For Number Plates

What is the "Retention Scheme"?

The retention scheme is where a registration mark is taken off a vehicle and placed onto a certificate of entitlement. This then allows the owner to transfer the plate to another vehicle at their convenience, and means that they can sell or scrap the donor vehicle. Only plates registered in Great Britain are eligible for this scheme. Plates from Northern Ireland cannot be put onto retention directly. They must first be registered in England, which will incur further costs. This information is supplied for interest and because it covers most common questions we are asked.
