We accept all major credit cards so if you want to buy one of our private registration plates, you know that you are dealing with a reputable organisation.

In light of the Consumer Contract Regulations, we 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 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 and Vehicle Licensing Agency. British Car Registrations is not affiliated to the DVLA or DVLA Personalised Registrations. British Car Registrations is a recognised seller of DVLA registrations.

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

We have maintained a rigid infrastructure from which to operate a comprehensive range of services and have 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 private plates at a competitive price, along with a highly professional service for our customers. It is also the company’s aim to achieve a profit for re-investment towards further growth and improved services.

Investor in People

We are, to date, the only private registrations company to have been recognised as “Investors in People”. This award is presented to companies who are able to meet certain criteria.

We have proven we invest and develop our staff to provide excellent customer service within the private number plates industry and we keep them updated with DVLA industry news so they can 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.

British Car Registrations

We chose this trading name because this is what we sell – British Car Registrations. We trade nationally and sell 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.
