Reason I ask is I am looking to buy a car, privately, that has been re-registered - reason for registration given by seller is that the car's original registration was cancelled as he decided to put his personalised plate on the vehicle. The vehicle was subsequently re-registered when he moved his personalised plate to a new vehicle
ie, the history according to seller is: (1) Original registration (2) Personalised plate (3) new registration
However, when I search on the plates, I only get the (1) original registration, replaced by (3) new registration
Is there any way I can verify the seller's account? For example, is there a register for personalised plates which shows their movements?
I did ask the seller if he kept the original paperwork from the initial deregistration, but he did not.
