IMPORTANT NOTICE
Before bidding on a Vehicle Registration number lot, interested parties should make themselves aware of the DVLA's rules and regulations regarding the transfer of vehicle registration numbers. Bidders are also reminded that it is the sole responsibility of the purchaser to check any details of the V750 or V778 document before bidding. The winning bidder must supply Bonhams Automobilia Department with their 'Nominee' details immediately following their payment for the lot, so the form can be sent to the DVLA by the seller and changed by the DVLA accordingly (This can take between 2 to 8 weeks to process). When the change has been done and the form has been forwarded to Bonhams and then onward to the buyer it is most important that the buyer ensures that the registration number is assigned to an age appropriate vehicle within 1 month of the date of receipt of the signed and completed V778 listing their nominee details, Bonhams will not be held responsible for the consequences of any buyer/nominee failing to do so.
