you need to apply for a new plate number for your car as the old plate number will not go with your new paper

Call one BUKOLA on 08023272331. Is the car carrying a new plate or the old type? If it is the old plate, it is easier. U can get the new plate almost immediately but if it is carrying a new plate, it will cost u more money and it takes more time.

Pls call the above number for more clarification and patronage.

Hello,

I bought a car from someone who had already registered the new number. I want to know if it's possible to just do Change of Ownership, without having to get a new plate number (since the car already has one). Thank you.

Yes u can but you will need a sworn court affidavit, police extract, and d deed of sale duly signed by the seller. The new papers however will carry the seller's name n details not yurs hence d need for all the supporting documents. But if u want it to carry yur name u will hv to pay for a new number plate since the number is tied to the seller's driver licence.
