It has thrown a spanner in the works for my car - the dealer sent the paperwork off on the 19th July!!!!
Sounds like you transferred from another vehicle?
If you have the 'plate on retention it's straight forward, just like registering on a regular number.
I started the process to remove my plate (and put on retention) early as this is taking a long time, waiting for the dealer to do this at point of delivery would be a no go for me.
