    Is there any way of requesting a reg if say the original registered car is now scrapped etc. For example if i wanted to get 92 D 100? Do you need to have an address in the county you register it in? Tks

    It was never possible to be reissued a scrapped reg, not only that but reserving a reg on a used car has been done away with too.

    It can only be done on a new car.

    Almost right. It was possible to get a reg from a scrapped vehicle under the old pre-1987 system.

    Yes, reserving a reg is now the privilege of new vehicle owners only.
    Revenue aren't interested in taking €1000 from owners of used or classic cars anymore �� (it was possible to reserve a reg for such vehicles up until 2015).

    When was it possible to get a pre 87 scrapped reg?

    Eg GTI 1 was a 1950s Limerick reg reissued to a Golf GTI in the early 80s
    So was GTI2 and GTI205 is on a 205GTI

    PI25, a 1903 Cork reg was reissued onto a Toyota Cressida

    There was a Opel Manta on Donedeal
    a few weeks ago with a 1904 Longford reg IX10

    In the 80's I remember seeing an Audi 100 wearing the first ever Longford reg - probably the best-looking reg ever issued in the UK/Irl system:

    IXI

    (actually IX 1, but it was spaced as above)
