    DVLA Private registration law change 17th Jul 17 at 10:21 AM
    Hi, I have a private reg on a retention certificate that ive held for a number of years bought through the dvla direct. Unfortunately I've lost the certificate in a recent house move. I recently requested a copy be sent to me, at the cost of 170 but they replied telling me the rules have now changed a year ago and now if you don't have the certificate then you don't own the plate as you cant renew it without it.

    I paid 1500 for my number plate, how can it be fair that they can change the rules on this, not tell me, and now I have lost the rights to the number plate, this cant be allowed can it ?

    I have written and just posted my 2nd letter of complaint to the customer services dept.

    Be great to hear from anyone that knows. Thanks in advance.

    Hard to see the connection between this and energy matters!
