DVLA Personalised Registrations Number Plate Auction
DVLA Personalised Registrations’ three-day live autumn auction will get underway this week at the Cambridge Belfry Hotel.
The Agency has once again delivered a wide-ranging blend of 1,250 personalised registrations to suit all tastes and budgets that will go under the hammer during the three-day event being staged in Cambourne.
While there are a whole host of registrations aligned to supercars like the Ferrari 812 Superfast with 812 S and 812 SA and the famed Aston Martin with A57 TON, as ever DVLA Personalised Registrations has delivered an array to suit all tastes ranging from those reflecting names such as B116 JON, D166 ORY, F41 TH and RY11 ANS, through to quirkier offerings such as HE16 HTS, 544 MBA and RUS 55T.
Jody Davies, DVLA Personalised Registrations’ Senior Sales Manager, said: “We have experienced another hugely successful year with a great number of registrations surpassing our expectations. Our last live auction held in the summer fell just four lots short of a 100 per cent sell out and we are hoping that success will continue with our autumn sale.”
Just some of the 1,250 personalised registrations included in the forthcoming sale include:
121 A (reserve £2,500), A61 LLY (£250), B111 RTY (£250), CA11 DDY (£400), DDH 110N (£250), E88 ONY (£250), FR12 ANK(£400), GHO 57T (£300), GLO 88E (£300), HE16 HTS (£700), HUG 9H (£350), JPE 4R (£350), KA15 ERS (£700), KHA 5N(£350), LAM 80L (£300), LL11 OYD (£400), MA15 EYS (£700), 544 MBA (£1,200), M42 RCO (£250), N41 NCY (£250), 96 O(£2,500), OAT 1S (£500), OSC 42R (£300), ROW 60AT (£250), 812 S (£2,500), SH11 MBA (£400), 250 T (£2,500), 75 US(£2,200), 2 VAN (£1,200), 600 W (£2,500), WY11 ATT (£400), 993 X (£2,500), YA11 CHT (£400), YOU 45K (£300).
How close a series of letters or numbers are to a real name of word: if the match quality is high (and the numbers and letters are very convincing in making a popular word), the value of the registration plate will be higher. This means that a match like 5IMON, for the name Simon, will be worth a lot more than a more obscure set of letters and numbers that are not as convincing a match, such as S17 MMM for the name Sam.
The style of the plate: this means establishing if it is a new-style plate, an older-style format or if it is dateless or Irish, for instance. Other options are that it is a prefix-style plate or a suffix-style plate. New-style number plates, which have been produced since 2001, tend to be the least valuable because they are a bit less appealing to some collectors, plus the rule about not having plates that are newer than your car can also come into play, putting people off from buying a newer-style plate for their older car. Prefix-style number plates, which were in production between 1983 and 2001 can be more popular as more vehicles are entitled to have those licence numbers, and they may have fewer characters in total. Suffix-style plates, issued from 1963 to 1983 are relatively rare, which means they can attract higher prices than prefix-style plates and newer designs. Dateless number plates, also known as cherished number plates, were produced between 1903 and 1963 and are nearly always the most valuable number plate configurations; they have fewer digits and their dateless nature means that people can hide the age of their car. Irish number plates are similar to dateless number plates, especially because they don’t have a year identifier. They also tend to be cheaper than other types of vehicle registration plates.
