The transferring of a private registration plate from a certificate (V750/V778) to a vehicle is commonly known as 'assignment'.
You will need to send the full V5C (log book) for the vehicle, and the certificate, to the DVLA who will arrange for the assignment and you will receive a replacement V5C back in the post showing the new registration. At this point you can inform your insurer of the change and display the acrylic plates on the vehicle. Any applicable tax and MOT records will be automatically updated.
Alternatively you can attempt the assignment online.
Further information can be found on our page about assigning a private plate to a vehicle.
If the private plate is already on a vehicle, we also have instructions on how to transfer a registration from one vehicle onto another.
