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).
“Once you’ve bagged that number plate – if it’s a good one it adds value to it. Some are iconic and will be sought after. Some of the best are simple but exquisite.”
The biggest went for £180,000 in May last year – for KR15 HNA – which was a new British record for the most expensive current style personalised registration plate.
Today, plates with just one number and two letters cost an estimated £60,000, 20 times more than the early 1990s, when drivers could expect to pay somewhere between £3,000 to £5,000.
A DVLA spokesman said: “Many people enjoy displaying a personalised registration number and the general sale and auctions remain extremely popular with the public.
“Since we began selling personalised registrations we have raised around £2.3 billion and all the money raised is passed to the Treasury.”
