    Hello guys,
    I'm looking to change my car from its current 79-D reg to ZV plates.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    John.

    It's your choice, but may I suggest you think twice before changing to a ZV.

    Current ZV registrations consist of 7-digits i.e. 'ZV 00000' and aren't in keeping with old-style (pre-1987) plates. At the very least, '79 D 000' looks more 'historically correct / period correct' in that it could have been imported anytime since 1-1-87 (as opposed to current '79 D 120000+ plates).

    Many people would nowadays prefer '79 D 000' over 'ZV 00000' - something to bear in mind if you are ever to consider selling on the car in the future.

    Thanks for your input Silvera. I'll certainly consider what you've said.

    This thread might help. (It's a few years old and has some conflicting answers though!).

    I was actually the OP on that thread too. I tried to follow the advice on the thread but hit brick walls everywhere I went and gave up!

    You need a VRT35 form. It's no issue at all to do, they may tell you it can't be done but it can. Iv done two now myself with no problems.

    Here's a VRT35 form from August 2013, don't know if it's been updated since.

    I sent that form before and they sent it back to me and told me to go to my local tax office. I did that and they seemed to think I was nuts in the tax office!

    Both 79 and ZV are incorrect for the period so depends on your taste. I went for ZV being imo the closest to period.

    They will do, as they usually have a clue and sounds ridiculous then!
    But it can be done.

    I presumed that this form would be submitted to the local VRT/NCTS office as they issue registrations nowadays?!
