    i have a bit of a problem, i have a Del Sol at the moment, and i got a private reg from my dad in america for my 21st. now its very important to me as it has my first name initial, J and it also has my last name, Ng but at the same time my nickname/username, Ngy;

    J100 NGY

    so... im going to import a DC2 early 2010, say Feb time. i have to sell the Del Sol in order to pay for some of the DC2 but i obv want to keep the reg. i have been on the DVLA site and i think i am just being simple, but i can't understand how it works... i can either

    cheers for the replies guys...

    no, i was planning to put the sol up for sale as soon as the MOT is done on 3 jan, and hoping it would sell before feb!

    all of this reg business is a waste of money IMO! if you buy a private reg, it should be yours and no more payments should have to be made, transfers etc...

    i think i may go into the local DVLA tomorrow and ask them... if flooding isnt an issue here lol

    Go the the DVLA office with all your documents for the delsol, logbook, MOT, tax. . . and pay them the

    Just had a look on the site, they're just a tad vague aren't they? Basically just tells you the questions but rephrased and then tells you to get a form. Might as well wait for your knob to jerk itself off. BEst bet, ring em or ask em personally. Will be a lot easier unless you get a total mong trying to serve you whjen you get there.
