Get a vehicle registration number

DVLA uses a points system to decide what registration number to give a radically altered vehicle.

To keep the original registration number.

Your vehicle must have 8 or more points from the table below if you want to keep the original registration number. 5 of these points must come from having the original or new and unmodified chassis, monocoque bodyshell or frame
Part Points
Chassis, monocoque bodyshell (body and chassis as one unit) or frame - original or new and unmodified (direct from manufacturer) 5
Suspension (front and back) - original 2
Axles (both) - original 2
Transmission - original 2
Steering assembly - original 2
Engine - original 1
Get a ‘Q’ registration number You won’t be able to keep your vehicle’s original registration number if one of the following applies: it has fewer than 8 points it has a second-hand or altered chassis, monocoque bodyshell or frame there’s evidence that 2 vehicles have been welded together to form one (ie ‘cut and shut’) Your vehicle must pass the relevant type approval test to get a ‘Q’ prefix registration number.
