About Our Service

When you buy a new registration from British Car Registrations you can feel entirely confident in the service you will receive. When we are in a position to do so, our experienced administration staff will coordinate the entire transfer of your private registration with DVLA. If you buy on–line there is also a state–of–the–art online tracking facility so that you can track the progress of your transfer at any time to suit you, 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. We know how important it is for you to find out how the transfer of your new number plate is progressing and whatever personalised registration you choose to buy on-line comes with this facility. At British Car Registrations you will find that we sell all types of car registrations. We sell private number plates owned by clients, we sell vehicle registrations that are held in our own stock and we also sell DVLA registrations. In every case, number plates are sold subject to availability, DVLA regulations and to our terms of business. Importantly, some personal registrations are subject to vat and you should check before you agree to purchase.

All telephone conversations with us are recorded in order to ensure the quality of our service and for everyone’s security. We accept all major credit cards and so if you want to buy one of our private plates or even a set of number plates, you can feel secure in the knowledge that you are dealing with a reputable organisation. In light of the Consumer Contract Regulations, we hereby notify you that our service begins immediately upon an initial payment being taken. In addition, the product you are purchasing from us is regarded as “personalised” or “bespoke” and this means that you are not entitled to a “cooling off period” or to a full or partial refund if you have a change of heart.

DVLA is a registered trade mark of the Driver & vehicle Licensing Agency. British Car Registrations is in no way affiliated to the DVLA or DVLA registrations.

Our Commitment

By employing more people than any other company solely involved in the sale and transfer of registrations and by maintaining highly trained and motivated sales, valuations and customer service departments, British Car Registrations has established a rigid infrastructure from which to operate a comprehensive range of services and has grown to be the largest and most professional in the industry; committed to continued growth and to customer care and we are the only one to be recognised as Investors in People.

At British Car Registrations, we aim to provide registration marks at a competitive price and a highly professional service for our customers whilst offering on-going training and acceptable working conditions for our staff. It is also the company’s aim to achieve a profit for re-investment towards further growth and improved services.

British Car Registrations is a trading name of Midland Registrations Ltd.

Investor in People

Another first! We are, to date, the only registrations company to have been recognised as “Investors in People”. This award is presented to companies that can demonstrate that they develop their staff in order to equip them to perform their jobs better.

We were delighted to be presented with the award in 2001 by our, then, MP, Richard Shepherd.

ISO 9001:2000

We were the first company in our industry to achieve the coveted ISO 9002 award (as it was then). In fact, only one other registrations company has ever achieved the standard required, for which companies are audited every nine months to ensure that they are adhering to documented procedures.

This government-backed, internationally recognised, quality award is very highly prized and we were pleased to achieve the necessary standard for ISO 9001:2000 too.

Valuations Over The Phone

We have been valuing registrations since 1987. Where our clients have a registration that they want to sell, we will email a considered valuation together with explanatory notes. We have found, however, that some clients want a more instant valuation and, for that reason, we introduced the option of using our premium service whereby we will provide a valuation during the same telephone call; on a “while-you-wait” service. If you use this service our experienced staff will assess the value of the individual registration mark and relay that information back straight away; the figure will also be confirmed by email. This service is available on 0906 515 5100

Valuations Certificate

Useful for probate, divorce, civil legal actions, and for many other reasons, our certificates showing our considered valuation of a registration mark are available online by selecting “Sell” at the top of the home page or by telephoning us on 0121 335 6777.

Why not have one to frame and hang in the garage?

British Car Registrations

We chose this trading name to reflect the fact that we trade Nationally and in every type of registration transfer whether it is an old style or a new reg. Whatever type of registration you are looking to buy or sell, we can deal with it.

What’s more, a little known fact is that, in order to use the word “British”, “English”, “National” etc in your business name, you must show that you are pre eminent in your field and you must also have written authorisation from Companies House.

British Car Registrations is a DVLA registered number plate supplier number 2133.
