Some people find the buying and selling of a registration number daunting. There’s a lot to think about, so let me help!

Hi, I’m Russell Watson

Since a very young age I have had a keen interest in cars and their registration numbers. Being able to tell a car's age and where it was registered was a hobby when I was growing up.

As people know it’s my passion, they’ve asked me to help them find or buy numbers on their behalf.

I’m now offering this service to anyone that needs help with finding their perfect registration number. 

I’m highly knowledgeable about everything relating to car registration numbers. I have more than 50 years’ experience, so I know what’s feasible, legal or just plain impossible. I can find numbers in the places that most people wouldn’t even think of looking.

I’m based in Dunfermline, Scotland but I can help you wherever you’re located in the UK.

Here's what some of my satisfied customers said...

“We knew we wanted a cherished registration number for our Land Rover Discovery but didn’t know where to start – where to look, how much to pay, what paperwork we needed to complete…. We weren’t even sure of what we wanted on it! Radical Registrations had all the answers and more besides. Russell’s professional, unbiased and no obligation approach guided us seamlessly through the whole process. From choosing a registration number right through to having the plates made up and fitted to the car, he made it so easy. We’re happy to recommend Radical Registrations’ services”.

Margaret Aitken

“I originally knew Russell Watson for over 20 years as a provider of stock control services to my catering business. I used this separate service of Russell for the search of and eventual successful purchase of my number plate. This involved internet searches and negotiation within agreed limits on my behalf. Once the relevant documentation arrived he arranged and fitted the new plates. The whole journey was seamless from start to finish and once the reg number was found took no longer than 10 working days to be live on my Discovery on the road. I would recommend Russell Watson to anyone considering a personal number plate purchase he gets a full 10/10 from me”

Michael Lee

“A few years ago I went to Russell for help sourcing a suitable Private Registration. Not something I had looked for before. Russell explained the procedure and was instrumental in finding what I was looking for. And bang on budget. He made the whole process simple and secure. I was most grateful and would happily recommend his services”

Scott Wilkinson

"Five years after I put it on retention (since I got married and changed my surname), I finally decided to let go of my once beloved cherished registration number. Russell provided a fast, efficient and friendly service, securing a fair price and dealing with all of the paperwork on my behalf. A great service at a very reasonable cost."

Margaret Watson

“Looking for the perfect registration, contact Russell Watson sourced the ideal plate. Everything from sourcing to registering, providing plates and fitting! Thanks again Russell. Not all superheroes wear capes.”

Stuvis Maximus Foxx

“Russell was nice and easy to deal with. He sold my number plate 663FS in under a fortnight. I would recommend Radical Registrations to anyone looking for a good honest sale or purchase.”

Frank Swan

“After a friend had plates done by Russell I thought I’d enquire about getting them done for my husband’s Christmas! I couldn’t believe how forthcoming Russell was with ideas and in fact because me and my husband both have the same kind of cars I ended up getting us matching plates. Russell done everything and took the stress out of sourcing, buying and the legality of it all at a very reasonable price and even delivered them to me just days before Christmas. Would highly recommend Radical Registrations for a friendly but very professional job. Thanks again Russell”

Jenna Leddy

“After being frustrated looking for the ideal registration for my husband as a Christmas present, a friend recommended Russell. He was on the case with a gusto and within a few short hours sourced the perfect reg. Russell does all the legalities and has the plates made. The perfect gift. The only problem now is what to get next Christmas”
