It is in our interest to conclude each transaction as fast as possible, however as we often rely on a donor client to fulfil his/her obligation to us in respect of the donor vehicle requirements of transfer, we cannot accept any responsibility for delays or failure caused by the keeper of the donor vehicle.

Please note that once a purchase is placed for all registration marks, the registration is deemed to be specifically to the requirements of the purchaser therefore is considered a personalised item, this means under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and additional charges) Regulations 2013, if the purchaser does not proceed with the transfer of the registration mark after paying a part/full payment or fails to supply the documentation required by the DVLA for transfer then no part of the payment is refundable as the service period commences immediately.

In such circumstances, the failure to complete shall be the responsibility of the purchaser and no refund shall be made.
13. An administration fee of £20+VAT shall be levied if a registration is purchased through the finance service and is subsequently cancelled. Whether this be because the finance application is declined, which subsequently means you no longer have the funds to purchase the registration and request cancellation or that before completing the finance process you choose to cancel. Should a finance application be declined but you have the funds to pay through other means then no administration fee would be due. This administration fee (which also includes our recovery of card processing costs) will be retained from the card deposit, prior to us returning the deposit to you.

Questions And Answers
Q. What happens to my present registration number?
A. Unless you want to pay an extra £80 to transfer it on to another of your vehicles or retention certificate, the number is voided by DVLA Swansea. The old plates are simply removed and disposed of and replaced by the new ones.
Q. What happens to my part or full payment if I change my mind before the transfer is lodged or after it has been lodged and no longer want the registration I have reserved?
A. We do not offer any refunds if you change your mind.
Q. Does the price include VAT and transfer fee?
A. The price advertised is just the price of the number, VAT and transfer fee are extra.
Q. If the transfer should fail do I get a full refund?
A. YES. We guarantee to give you an instant refund in the event of the transfer failing. However, if the failure is due to you not supplying the necessary documents within the period of time required by us no refunds will be given. Issue of the new V5 by DVLA Swansea shall be deemed proof of acceptance of the transfer.
Q. How do I know if a number is genuine?
A. The donor vehicle is inspected by The Department of Transport to ensure that it is the genuine vehicle and registration. We will take care of this. If any discrepancy is discovered the transfer will fail. Please note The Secretary Of State for Transport of their agents (the DVLA) may revoke the relevant right to a registration mark at any time for whatever reasons, and Speedy Registrations cannot be held responsible in the very unlikely event of this.
Q. Does the recipient vehicle need to be inspected by the authorities?
A. Yes. The DVLA reserve the right to inspect vehicles, however, this is very rare. For example if there was a change of construction of the vehicle the authorities may want to inspect it. The DVLA and your local VOSA representative will notify you if this is necessary.
Q. Are registration numbers good investments?
A. Values of all registration numbers have increased over the past few years and there is no reason why this trend should not continue. The Cherished Numbers Dealers Association offers a fully independent and widely recognised valuation service.
Q. How long does the transfer take?
A. The average time scale is one to four weeks. In some instances transfers can take longer and the time period cannot be guaranteed, but we would keep you informed of the progress in any event. However, it should be noted that we cannot start the transfer until we have relevant documents from yourself.
