Transferring a registration number to an A7
#28
I wouldn't feel so bad about the whole thing if it were a car that I had only just bought, but the fact is that I've owned and driven it around for 33 years. Not an insignificant amount of time. Many of the folk I'm dealing with at the DVLA weren't even born when I first got the car!

As Hedd says, I should have checked my numbers first, but in truth it never even occurred to me after all these years.

Well, I reckon so, but only if you allow for a little margin of error. On the Clubs' Association database, I have identified a car that mine might be swapped with. Firstly, that car has the engine number that is on my V5C. Secondly, the chassis number is the same if you swap the last two digits around. An unlikely coincidence? And finally it's registration number would be the same if you substitute a U for a V. Bearing in mind that these things are prone to error when written down, I might be onto something there. However, I haven't been able to trace the owner of the other car, nor do I imagine they would have any appetite to talk to me about all of this, under the prevailing circumstances.
