Jersey Private Personalised Number Plates
The numbers up for sale include J001 as well as a number of sequential plates such as J9545 and J9546, JSY63 and JSY64, and JSY141, JSY142 and JSY143. Some six-digit plates will also be auctioned, including J311111.
Infrastructure Minister Eddie Noel said: ‘J001 is a very desirable number to have on your car and I think it will bring quite a few bidders willing to pay a premium price at our annual auction. It will raise much-needed funds for my department, as will the other 49 memorable numbers.’
As well as selling plates at their annual auctions, DVS also has an online list – available at the DVS office – where five- and six-digit registration numbers can be bought for £250.
Income from the auctions and sales goes towards essential DVS equipment and other transport-related items.
The event is due to take place in the Great Hall at Highlands College at 10.30 am, with doors due to open at 9 am.
How much did you pay for your last car? Actually, how much did you pay for your last house, if you've ever bought one? Now that you have those figures in mind, think that someone out there sooner rather than later will spend $20 million on a car's license plate. Yes, a license plate. And no, it's not made out of gold.
Afzhal Khan is the man behind this outlandish online sales ad for his personal vanity plate he currently has affixed to his Bugatti Veyron. The Euro-style license plate only features two characters on its elongated yellow body, which read "F1," as in "Formula 1." Kahn originally bought the plate in 2018 for the eye-watering amount of approximately $619,000 according to Carscoops, but it's not clear if he did it because he's a massive Formula 1 fan, for investment reasons, or simply to be a top-notch show-off.
Unlike in the United States, citizens of the United Kingdom own their license plates and their contents, which means that if you're able to secure a saucy message on it, it's yours to keep and resell as long as you pay the one-time and yearly fees. The price of the plate itself is "only" $16,96,918 or so, but after transfer fees and a whopping 20 percent tax-equivalent surcharge, the total price of admission for the plate's future owner blows up to little over $20 million dollars.
When, not if, the "F1" plate sells, it will most likely be the most expensive license plate ever sold in the world. Back in 2008, United Arab Emirates businessman Saeed Abdul Ghafour Khouri paid the then equivalent to $14.3 million for a local license plate that simply had the number "1" on it. The license plate and many of its authorized copies were installed to his fleet supercars which included several Pagani, Bugatti, and Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
It’s fast becoming like alphabet soup, if it hasn’t already. Hot on the heels of the XX special number plate series is er, the X special number plate series. And why not? The double-letter UU and YY series already have their U and Y precursors, so XX now gets X.
No background details on this one, but you can expect that it’ll be tied to some organisation or foundation. What we do know is that the series will run from X 1 to X 9999 and that the end date for bidding is on April 23, with results of successful bids being announced on May 7.
For this one, the tender reserve price is RM50,000 for single-digit numbers, while that for a two-digit number is RM10,000. As for three-digit numbers, the minimum bid is RM3,000, while prices start from RM1,000 for four-digit numbers. Demand should be high for the X1 to X6 plates, for obvious reasons.
The X series follows on the aforementioned XX series that reported about just yesterday. Other special number plate series that have come about include GTR, GG, SAM, K1M, T1M, A1M, US, SMS, NBOS, NAAM, VIP, G, GT, U, Y, PERFECT and PATRIOT. I think it’s safe to say we can expect XXX to appear at some point.
We spotted Kareena Kapoor Khan recently just outside the Gym she frequents. The otherwise booylicious yummy mummy always grabs our attention with her super fit bod. But this time around, she surprised us with her swanky toy! Yes, when Bebo stepped out of her spotless white Audi Q7 with the other Bollywood star Amrita Arora, she waved at us happily. But we decided to overlook her sweet gesture as our eyes were fixated on the unique car plate number of hers!
Yes, isn't that car plate really unique? 7070. When we probed deep into the possible significance of this really remarkable car plate, this is what our research threw at us. A renowned astrologer and numerologist from the city had this to say about the number 7070. " Number 7 appearing twice in the same digit is a significant placement indeed. The energy vibrations of the number 7 has been chronicled for years in various research and rituals."
When coupled with the colour white, we are informed, this number creates strength of spirituality "It has to do with inner-wisdom, individuality and endurance, spiritual awakening and enlightenment. When separated by the digit Zero the recurrence of number 7 reflects psychic abilities. It surely creates the magical aura and it is the number of the mystic and the spiritual realms." she concluded.
More Britons are personalizing their car number plates than ever before, according to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). In the past year, the Treasury made a record total of £102 million — £15 million more than 2014-2015 from an estimated 335,000 registration plates purchased by drivers in the U.K.
The DVLA started selling personalised number plates in 1990, with just 77,745 purchased between 1995-96 — four times less than today. At present, the DVLA boasts 47 million plates on offer to drivers across the country, which can be bought online or at auctions.
The DVLA says almost 335,000 registrations were sold in the last year – more than four times the figure in the mid-Nineties.
A spokesman for the AA welcomed the news, saying: “It puts a smile on people’s faces and raises money for the exchequer – what’s there to complain about?
