If yes, what is the process?


Leasing a brand new car may mean that you never actually own it but that doesn’t stop you from being able to treat it as if it’s your own.

When you lease a car, the vehicle’s V5 registration document remains with the finance company as they are the registered owner and keeper of the vehicle but you can request the V5 if you wish to make changes or modifications to your lease car.

For instance, if you wish to make modifications to your lease car such as having a tow bar fitted or you’re thinking of treating yourself to personalised registration plates, or own them already, you can but there’s a process to go through.

If you already own a private number plate and would like to transfer it over to your brand new lease car you must inform us of your intention at the start of the lease so that the process can be dealt with from the beginning.

The finance company will then be able to send the log book to you so that you can go through the DVLA to transfer the number plate over to your new lease car.

However, if you receive delivery of your brand new lease car and then decide to purchase a personalised registration plate you can still do so but the process might take a little longer to sort out.

You can drive a lease car year after year and make it feel as though it’s yours by adding a few personal touches here and there, like adding a private number plate or having a tow bar fitted and don’t forget, you even get to choose what colour you would like from the options available on the make and model you decide to lease.
