I Ordered a Show Plate for My Husband

I wanted to order some new plates for my husband as a surprise. It was something that he had on his to do list for a while, and it was also one of those things that he was just not getting around to. The plates were not for our regular car, as that one is just fine. I wanted to get him show plates for a car that he has restored, and I was able to get them through https://www.gbshowplates.co.uk. Even though he has not shown the car in any car shows yet, I knew that it was just a matter of time before his work schedule eased up and he would be able to do that.

I wanted him to be ready when that time came, and the only way I could really contribute to that was by ordering the show plates that I knew he wanted. I was not worried about getting something that he would not like because we have such similar tastes.…

A Unique Way to Sell Custom Plates

My son is in the marching band and the booster club is always looking for new ideas for fundraising. They take one big annual trip and the more money we can raise through fundraising the less it costs for each member of the band. At one our brainstorming sessions somebody suggested that maybe we could sell custom show plates from https://www.theplateman.net/custom-show-plates/. This was a very unique idea that warrants us to look into it a little bit further. I was given the task of going on a fact-finding mission to see if this was even possible.

The first thing I did was go to the website with my notepad at my side. I figured I should see what they had to offer before I contacted the company directly. While navigating around their website, I noticed that there were two different types of plates. The number plates are road legal and the show plates are not.…

Plates Just Like in the Movies

While I was watching a movie one day, I noticed that one of the characters had a plate on their car with short funny message. I thought it would be cool to have one of those. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to install it on my car for legal reasons, but I would be able to display it at home. I looked on the Internet for a company that had experience with building show plates to custom orders, and came across one that did not only show plates, but regular plates that are legal to put on a car as well.

I ended up buying two show plates, one based on the plate that I saw in the movie, and another one that had a different short message on it. I figured that the plates would make a good conversation piece whenever anyone saw them in my home. Anyone who has seen the movie that I watched will get the reference to one of the plates.…

I MOVED TO A NEW STATE. DO I NEED TO RE-REGISTER MY VEHICLE?

32 years old Naveen was all set to change his base from Bangalore to Mumbai to take up the great job opportunity came in his way. He was all excited to take up the new challenge in his career. Same time, he was equally anxious about changing the base to another city which may need a lot of planning. Finding a house, getting things changed in the record, shifting the household and list is long lasting. His main worry was to transfer the car from Bangalore to Mumbai.

Like Naveen, there are many people who may face this problem while changing base for better prospects. Vehicle transfer and re-registration when moving to a new state may seem complex. But with the proper understanding of the process, you can make it a smooth transition. Here is what you need to do if you are moving your vehicle from one state to another permanently.

Vehicle transfer and re-registration is a multi-layer process. Below are the steps to be followed

  • Interstate Transfer NOC from Bank:

In case you have taken a car loan from a bank, you need to contact your respective bank branch to obtain bank hypothecation clearance certificate or No objection certificate for interstate transfer. You may have to submit the relevant documents such as address proof and document supporting relocation reason, etc. Your request will be validated after verification.

  • Apply for NOC from RTO where your Car is registered

Next step is to apply for NOC from RTO for interstate transfer of vehicle. It can be applied by submitting below documents:

  • RTO Form 27, 28 in 3 copies (it’s an application request form for NOC for interstate vehicle transfer)
  • No objection certificate from police for traffic clearance – stating there are no offence and no dues pending against your vehicle.
  • NOC obtained from the bank
  • Certificate of registration
  • Insurance policy documents
  • Engine Chassis Imprint
  • Pollution under Control Certificate
  • Tax Receipt
  • NOC from NCRB (National Crime Record Bureau) that there is no crime or theft involved. Click here to get this certificate online
  • Your ID and address proof

Once you obtain the no objection certificate you are good to migrate. You can now drive down or transfer your car through car transporters. Once you move in to the new state with your car, you need to get your car re-registered in that particular state. A new registration number will be issued for your car. Your new registration and re-registration process begins.

  • Keep the Documents Ready

Before you visit the RTO of your current state, you need to keep below set of documents handy

  • NOC obtained from RTO for interstate transfer
  • In case there is a bank hypothecation, NOC from bank
  • Original documents of your vehicle such as RC book, smart card, insurance documents, PUC or emission test certificate etc.
  • Your car’s original invoice (this is important as the road tax amount will be calculated based on this)

  • Visit RTO for Re-registration

Last leg of the process is to visit the …
