And The Success Continues… DVLA Personalised Registrations Celebrate Successful Sale
October 6, 2017
The popularity in personalised registrations shows no signs of abating, if the latest three-day live auction organised by the DVLA is anything to go by.
For the fourth successive live auction of 2017, the Agency recorded a 99 per cent sales conversion from the 1,250 lots on offer and again raised more than £5 million for the Treasury.
The registrations 96 O, 812 S and 1 HSV, which fell under the gavel for £52,500, £45,500 and £41,500 respectively, became the highest priced personalised registrations during the three-day event staged at the Cambridge Belfry Hotel.
With dozens of registrations sold for £10,000-plus, at the other end of the pay scale, scores of personalised registrations sold for their reserves, some as low as £250.
Jody Davies, DVLA Personalised Registrations’ Senior Sales Manager, said: “Once again we have cause to be delighted with another successful three-day live sale with all but a handful of lots being sold and over £5 million raised for the Treasury. The success is born from the British motorists’ love for personalised registrations which, as we constantly prove, is as strong as ever..”
She added: “We are now firmly focussed on our pre-Christmas live auction which will be held at Wychwood Park, near Crewe from Wednesday, November 22.”
It is an offence to alter, re-arrange, or misrepresent a registration number. There is a maximium fine of £1000, and the registration number can be withdrawn without compensation.
