Nor will MOTOR MARKS be liable for any damages, interest or expense incurred.

After 9th March 2015 any applications made for a Retention Certificate the fee will be £80.00.

The Buyer must provide full payment before any transfer shall be submitted to the DVLA Department of Transport Office at Swansea. This payment must be within 14 days of securing the registration by an initial part payment or the transaction will be deemed a failure and thus lose the Buyer their part payment unless a longer period of time has been agreed with MOTOR MARKS. Vehicle documents must also be received within maximum of 28 days from receipt of part payment, or as prescribed by Motor Marks if a longer period is granted.

If you have purchased a Prefix or Current Style number plate then payment is required immediately in order for us to secure the registration number for you.

If the Buyer wishes to have the registration mark purchased and supplied on a DVLA retention certificate it will be subject to the possibility of the mark being retained as confirmed by MOTOR MARKS.

Under Distance Selling Regulations 2000, section 13 (c)., if the Buyer does not proceed with the transfer of the registration number after paying a part payment/full payment to MOTOR MARKS or fails to supply the full documentation required by the DVLA to process the transfer, then no part of this payment is refundable whatsoever, as the service period commences immediately. Ordered numbers cannot be refunded or exchanged, nor will any cancellations be accepted.

The acceptance of our terms on any internet order will also bind the person placing the order to commit to the purchase, and provide full payment as agreed when forming the contract. If this is not authorised by the internet order it will need to be provided by alternative methods, as the contract to purchase is formed by entering full purchase details.

If the transaction fails due to no fault on the part of the Buyer other than as above, he will be given a full refund of monies paid to MOTOR MARKS and all documentation shall be returned. The fee that was paid to DVLA Swansea of £80.00 will be refunded to the Buyer directly from DVLA Swansea at a later date.

The issue of a new Vehicle Registration Document V5/C (if a vehicle was involved) bearing the new registration number to the Buyer from the DVLA Swansea or a V778 Retention Document or V750 Certificate of Entitlement shall be conclusive proof that a successful Transfer has taken place.

It is the responsibility of the Buyer to purchase and fit new car number plates to their vehicle and to notify their insurance company of the change of registration.
