You can get it done there and then if you go into the DVLA office with the relevant documentation.

thats about right... but they also charge you a fortune for transfer fees...

if you dont have a car to put it onto then ytou take it off and put it onto retention... (i have a plate on retention just now)... this can be done for 1, 2 or 3 years... its around 20 extra for every year, but the transfer fees are another £60-80. Bloody DVLA will find a way to charge you for anything... when i took mine off i didnt have a car to put it on at the time so had tp pay £85. This means though you have paid everything and can just transfer it across straight away, then you'll need to send away your tax disk and log book etc to get updated...

Watch yourself as well, because some insurance companies charge you for changing the registration number on your policy, its a farce !.. usually around £15 "administration fee". :bang ..sometimes think its more hastle than its worth.
