Vehicle Number Plate Issue by hiscules: 7:23pm On Aug 20, 2017
Please, I heard that when u sell a registered car, the number plate is not supposed to be sold alongside the car, how true?

If you sell with number plate, will the new owner be able to update the vehicle papers and still retain the number plate? Is it against the law?

I have had too much information about this number plate matter, I need clarification.

The new number plate are registered to the owner of the vehicle and not the vehicle in essence it means the number plate is the owner's property. You are not to sell your car with your number plate on it except the buyer needs it to get to his location and return them at a later date to you. If you fail to get them back from the buyer and he committed a crime with the vehicle,you're the prime suspect in any Police investigation because the number plate is registered to you.

He can not retain the number plate because it belongs to you. He needs to do what is called reregistration to get his own number plate

It is against the law of the land

Hi Pattybf, since you are here, am wondering why the VIO office is allowing that to happen, what is the current price of getting the change done? please note the vehicle glass and body is engraved with the old plate number

Very true! I bought a registered car last month and I collected all the car documents from the seller (old owner), took it to the vio's office here in Abuja and the new vehicle particulars (vehicle licence, proof of ownership, road worthiness, insurance etc) came out in my name. Simple as that!

I totally disagree! I have registered all my vehicles here from the vio's office in Abuja. Both new and renewal of registered vehicle plates. Am not a vio or road safety personnel but mind u it's never a fake version as u said. If ur in Abuja it's as simple as that!
