Having sold the MO HO we had the personal reg number on retention. We wanted to put it on the car, but wanted to keep the reg from the car. Unable to do this online we had to do it by post. This included sending a cheque (first one I've written since 2014) I have been checking the bank everyday to see if the cheque had beeb cashed, expecting the worst because of the DVLA'S reputation. But yesterday the new VC5 arrived for the car and the retention certificate for the number. They still have not cashed the cheque yet.
