Cherished Transfer

You must notify the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), formerly VOSA, immediately when the Vehicle Registration Mark of your vehicle has changed if it has a Reduced Pollution or Low Emission Certificate.

For Heavy Goods Vehicles over 3500kg Gross Vehicle Weight you will need to submit a Notifiable Alteration Form, the appropriate fee along with the original Reduced Pollution or Low Emission Certificate. You can download the notifiable alteration form and guidance notes on GOV.UK.

For Light Goods Vehicles 3500kg Gross Vehicle Weight and under, you will need to send a copy of the V5C vehicle registration certificate (logbook) displaying the new Vehicle Registration Mark along with the original Reduced Pollution or Low Emission Certificate to:

There is no fee for the issue of a new certificate.

For buses, coaches or minibuses, you will need to submit a copy of the V5C vehicle registration certificate (logbook) displaying the new Vehicle Registration Mark along with the original Reduced Pollution or Low Emission Certificate and, if applicable, the original Certificate of Initial Fitness.
