When gifting a personalised number plate with Click4Reg, the process is as follows:

  • Find the perfect private plate for your recipient (Dad). 

  • Fill in your address, nominee name and pay online - yes, it really is that simple! We also offer flexible payment options for those that would rather pay on a monthly basis. 

  • Wait for your email confirmation and to receive your ownership documents. We work fast to ensure you receive the gift promptly and securely. 

We know that some people worry that buying a private plate as a gift can be a complex and time-consuming process, but they couldn’t be more wrong. In fact: 

  • You won’t need the vehicle documents when purchasing the plate. However, you will need to use these when you transfer the registration. Fortunately, this can be done by your dad after receiving the gift at a later date, so as not to spoil the surprise! 

  • On the certificate, a registration number is added along with the name of the purchaser (probably you!) and the name of the gift recipient (your dad!)

  • If you live with your dad or stepdad and want to prevent him from finding out about the gift when it arrives, you can even order it to be delivered to a neighbour or friend’s property instead. 

  • The personalised plate (or the rights to use it) last 10 years, so all your dad needs to do is renew it before those years pass, making it an easy gift to maintain and enjoy. 


How to present your personalised number plate on Father's Day

As with all Father’s Day gifts, presentation is key, but even more so with a present as thoughtful and exciting as a new personalised car plate.

If you are wondering how to display your personalised number plate gift in an impressive way, we recommend the following things: 

1. Purchasing a smart-looking number plate gift box to put the acrylic number plate in if you have a physical version of it available in time. This can be dolled up with the use of a striking bow, or with gift wrap.

2. If you have the physical plate in time and have completed all necessary processes, you can even present the number plate on the car, if you have a drive and access to do so! 

3. Displaying the V750 Certificate of Entitlement in a smart envelope, as part of a card or in a frame of some kind. This is a good idea if you haven’t got your hands on the acrylic plate yet! 

4. Consider getting an accompanying gift that relates to the number plate, such as a luxury driving experience - perfect for those looking to take their Father’s Day present to another level!
