New registrations are issued by the dealers using DVLA computer system..............it is purely random......although I understand thet you can refuse to accept any ONE "unsuitable" registration.

(According to my dealer)

There is very little choice, if you make no preference, you will get what you are given. Most of our numbers issued recently are DG09*** The last three letters being randon, so not a lot of choice

Kingo :thumbsup:

Hi Kerrie3000

I ordered two new cars at end of July for delivery 1 Sept. Yesterday (17 Aug) I rec'd call from the dealer's admin dept. to say chassis number has been received 'on the system' for one of the cars and inviting me to chose from three alternatives (the final three letters are all different). I chose, and told the insurance company immediately so that ins cert can be got to the dealer for car tax purposes.

The chassis number for the second car has not yet been received by the dealer but i'm informed that they check every day and I will get to chose one-from-three again.

When I bought my MR2 I got the choice of the last 3 random letters.. every option I tried to get wasn't available (trd, hks, jdm etc and both mine and the wifes initials) so I asked for any 3 letters that didn't spell a word, he told me what it was and asked me to organise insurance (only had 2 weeks to wait for the car), upon getting the insurance certificate through I took it to the dealer only to find out the reg number he said he got me wasn't available anymore as he was too slow in reserving it, so he contacted my insurance company and they sorted out a new certificate through the dealer for me.

So baisically as soon as I ordered my car I got the "choice" of reg number :lol:

I bought two new Toyotas in June.

The Aygo was registered from new with my private reg number and so has never had a 'year' related number. I just gave the dealer my 'certificate of entitlment' and they did all the work. With the Hilux I asked them if I could pick one of their DVLA allotted numbers and they gave me a list of about ten to choose from. I think the point is that you have to ask for the choice, it isn't just offered as a matter of course.

Interesting discussion. We didn't get a choice with our Aygo. Don't think that it would have made much difference. part of the mystique of buying your new car IMHO!
