take all the paper work to your local vro , if the one you bought is on retention they should tell you to go home and put your new plates on, if you want to keep the one thats on the escort you will need to put it on retention (£105) if not then thats about it

when you want to sell the escort you need to either put you personal reg on retention or transfer it to another car and dvla will put another number, usually the original, back on the escort

When you sell the car take the new number off and put it on retention. The DVLA will issue another number (which is normally the original number) to the car for you to sell it on. You must do the transfer before the vehicle is sold.
