To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects the transfer and retention of cherished vehicle numbers to be a transaction that is available to complete online.

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) is introducing an online Personalised Registration system, which will allow customers to retain and subsequently assign a personalised registration number to a vehicle electronically. This will effectively replace the cherished transfer process as customers will be able to retain and immediately assign a registration number to a different vehicle.

The DVLA has adopted an agile development approach, working in partnership with stakeholders, and looks forward to releasing the components of cherished transfers online, including retention, starting in early 2015 and continuing throughout the year.
