New vehicle licences

When you submit an application you will receive an email with a receipt number.

You will need to contact one of the council approved testing stations, book the vehicle in with them for testing and provide them your receipt number.

There is an additional charge for this, payable to the garage on the day of testing (prices vary). 

Once the vehicle has passed the test the plate will be ready to collect from the Information Station, Queensway, Newport NP20 4AX, on the next working day after 3.30pm.

As the Information Station is closed every Wednesday, licences for vehicles that pass at the testing station on a Tuesday will be released on Thursday after 9am.
