Understanding the New V750 and V778: Everything You Need to Know

At Utopia Plates, we're committed to keeping you informed and ahead of the curve when it comes to changes in vehicle registration and number plate regulations. That's why we're bringing you the latest update directly from the DVLA regarding significant changes to the V750 Certificate of Entitlement and V778 Retention Document. Remember, at Utopia Plates, it's all about "Number Plates Made Simple."

Key Changes to V750 and V778:

The DVLA recently announced a redesign of two crucial documents in the world of private number plates – the V750 Certificate of Entitlement and the V778 Retention Document. Here's what you need to know about these changes:

  1. New Design: The redesigned documents will feature a fresh layout. The V750 and V778, previously known for their distinctive pink, green, and blue colours, will now be printed on plain, watermarked paper.
  2. Certificate/Document Reference Number: This crucial number will now be located on the back of the form, making it easier to locate and reference.
  3. Removal of Signature Requirement: In an effort to streamline the process, the requirement for a signature on these documents has been removed.
  4. Bilingual Versions: Reflecting the diversity of the UK, bilingual versions of these documents (V750W or V778W) will be issued to customers with a Welsh postcode. These versions will be available in standard A4 size.
  5. Updated Guidance Notes: The documents will include updated guidance notes, helping you to understand and utilise them more effectively.
  6. Bulk Delivery for Dealers: Dealers, including Utopia Plates, will receive these documents in bulk, ensuring we can serve our customers efficiently.
  7. Validity of Old Certificates: It’s important to note that all certificates issued before this change will remain valid and will be accepted under normal rules.
