Registrations which have never been assigned to a car can be purchased on a V750 (Certificate of Entitlement). If the registration is currently not assigned to a car but has been in the past, it can be issued on a V778 (Retention Document). There is a difference in the language used on Retention Documents and Certificates of Entitlement. The "Owner" of the registration is called a "Purchaser" on a V750 (Certificate of Entitlement) and is called a "Grantee" on a V778 (Retention Document).
The registration can be assigned to a suitable vehicle registered in the name of the "Owner" or the "Nominee". The "Nominee" is a person that the "Owner" has documented as the new owner of the registration when the current "Owner" (stated as "Purchaser" on the V750 or "Grantee" on the V778) decides, at a future date, to assign the registration to a vehicle registered to the named "Nominee" For more information see All about V778 (Retention Documents) or All about V750 (Certificate of Entitlements).
