As above got a letter with original V5C from DVLA saying i have to reregister my car for NI with DVA.

Does this mean i lose the private plate??

As above you can keep it

Just write a letter with the registration form saying you wish to keep the original plate.

I kept the english plate when i brought my 3 door over here

Thread revival. Had a quick search but didn't find my answer.

How do i go about reregistering a car to replace the english registration with a Northern Irish registration?

Go to the tax office and they’ll ask you whether you’d like a NI reg issued.

Or send your v5 to Swansea with a covering lettering asking for a ni plate to be issued. Did that myself in January.

Thanks. I’ll wait for the tax book to arrive in my name and then send it of to Swansea with a covering letter. Is there a fee?

What are the current NI regs being issued? Her new car has an English reg on it which I want off it.

Depends on which county you want it registered in, a few weeks ago Down was in the very last of the FSZ series, could possibly have moved on to GSZ now.

Will probably go with Co Antrim WGZ. RXZ would be nice but don't like SXZ and definitely don't like WIG!

When doing this can you pick the county or is it just done on your address?

Afaik it's down to your address now, but you could always ask for another county plate when send the letter off and see what you get?
When you did it here and could walk into a tax office you could ask for whatever county.

Cheers, have a couple of English reg cars so will send them off and see if I can get something decent and sequential.
