When I took my daughter's plates into Chania they had almost been accepted when the gentleman looked at the passport copy in their folder and realised I wasn't that person. He handed them back and my daughter had to fly over in person from UK to finally get rid of them. The car had been registered in the UK by then and had a UK license no, but we were still also having to pay the Greek road tax too.
You may have been able to hand the plates in for your daughter had you been in possession of some sort of power of attorney, properly issued of course. I guess that without it, they could refuse on the basis that someone could simply unscrew the plates from a vehicle and hand them in without the owner knowing. Not sure why?
