Purchased a fun 11 series number plate on day of release last year, and got it put on a couple of weeks ago (Took 8 weeks as I had to get it transferred from Swansea to DVLA (Northern Ireland))
Funny seeing people behind you laughing and getting their phones out to take a pic of it as it does stand out especially here as we have dateless plates.
Anyone else pick up a nice 11 reg, or has another good one?

It was £500 and a LOT of frustrating button pushes on the DVLA web servers on day of release as they crashed so many times.
Also cost just over £200 to get it transferred to DVLA (Northern Ireland) as it had to be registered on a UK Mainland car/moped before it could be used over here, at least its now opened up more possibilites later if I wanted to transfer it again.

The best private plate I've seen so far was BJ08 SUX, if i remember right that was on a small ford white van, great sense of humour I thought. :lol:

Funny you should say that, I had an email from the bloke that owns that registration yesterday after I contacted him.
I asked him a couple of questions regarding transfers, as I was worried that I heard certain registrations could be withdrawn that had crept through the release process by mistake.
Started off his reply with B*llocks :lol:
He said that he had transferred, Pen15 and 60CK loads of times.

Excellent plate, Doveeey junior is a pro golfer so we hope to get BA11 TEE, its up for £750 from DVLA.

Best plate belonged to some 6's model who's name escapes me it was 5EXY.

SpeedyReg (Who are very reputable and based here) charged £120, then there was a fee of £80 to DVLA, and another of £25 for DVLA Swansea.
The £80 that you already pay when buying the plate is used for transferring it onto a vehicle registered on the Mainland.
Its done in a couple of phases.

They tell you it takes between 4 to 6 weeks, but it was 8 weeks in total for me.(I suppose a couple of bank holidays etc during that time)

BTW I PM'd you earlier.
