Can I put my personalised plate onto a vehicle registered to another person?
Unfortunately no. The personalised plate and the vehicle both need to be registered to the same person. To put the personalised plate onto another person’s vehicle, you would need to transfer the entitlement of the plate into their name as well.
To do this you will both need to complete a Transfer of Entitlement Form and send it to the Government Plate Manufacturer (details below) so they can update their records. This transfers the entitlement of the "Right to Receive" the plate over to the new name. The new owner will not be able to get the plates manufactured unless this form is lodged correctly.
