Personalised plate auction to make hundreds of pounds

Whilst there are numerous ways to actually buy custom private number plates, a personalised registration auction is to be held in Daventry. The Driving and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) often hold auctions to sell off old bespoke plates, and for those wanting an extremely specific sequence of numbers and letters already in existence, heading to one of these auctions can be the best place to procure the reg. At the Daventry sale there are a wide range of plates available, allowing people to get their hands on bespoke sequences thatíll be recognised around the country.

Having begun on May 7th, the three day event has been held at Hellidon Lakes in Daventry and will finish on May 9th. Over the course of the past few days, many personalised plates have come up for auction, including those such as BII4 TTY and 23 O, the reverse prices for which are £300 and £4,000 respectively. One sequence thatís like to find a lot of appeal with those attending is HA12 PER. The DVLAís Personalised Registrationsí Events Manager, Jody Davies, explained, ďWhile Harper is a long established surname, clearly it has risen in popularity as a first name over the last couple of years. Incredibly, you canít get any closer to it than the HA12 PER registration we will be auctioning.Ē

Over the course of the three days, hundreds of registrations from an online catalogue have been up for sale, with the DVLA expecting to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds by offering people the chance to own some of the most iconic plates around. Other registrations that have shown a high amount of interest have been OR14 NDO and FUN 805S. Whilst fans of the Florida city can expect to pay at least the reserve price of £1,000 for the U.S-related plate, the raft of 805S plates are expected to sell for around £400 each. Others include JOY 805S and OOH 805S.

Having a custom plate is a great way of taking even more pride in a vehicle and showing off some real personality without saying a word. For many people, the DVLAís auctions are the ideal opportunity to get a cheap custom plate, or to purchase one of the many existing sequences theyíve always wanted. However, for others, there is a wide variety of bespoke plate options still available, and to get these, itís best to utilise a specific custom plate vendor.
