I'm not 100% sure, but I think it should be 3-chloro-1,4-dimethyl-cyclohex-1-ene (working anti-clockwise) to ensure the lowest overall numbering.

Actually it was 5-chloro-1,4-dimethylcyclohexene. I made the dumb mistake of putting 5-chloro-1,4-dimethyl-cyclohexene before, which is why it was wrong. This website: http://www.vanderbilt.edu/AnS/Chemistry/Rizzo/chem220a/alkenes.pdf is a good resource for this if anyone has similar questions. But thank you for your help PWiz.
