DVLA Personalised Registrations Serve Up a Royal Tribute as its 2018 Live Auction Programme Gets Underway
February 19, 2018
Royalists looking to buy Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a unique wedding present need look no further than DVLA Personalised Registrations’ first live auction of 2018.
For HA18 RRY and MEG 2E are among the 1,250 personalised registrations being auctioned during the three-day event being held at Oulton Hall near Leeds from Wednesday, February 21.
Other ‘royal’ related registrations include AL18 ERT, DUK 5E and PR17 NCE as the Agency aims to continue from where it left 2017 and what was yet another highly successful year during which its five live auctions raised £25.6 million for the Treasury.
As ever, DVLA Personalised Registrations has unearthed an eclectic array of lots to suit all tastes and budgets. AL18 ERT – which clearly correlates to the once popular name of Albert – is among the first of the current style 18-series being auctioned alongside others reflecting a variety of names such as AN64 ELA (Angela), KA11 THY (Kathy) and NOA 444H (Noah).
For the supercar drivers, there’s A55 TON and ONE 77C – reflecting the famed Aston Martin One 77 – together with 812 FER and 512 S and F488 GBT that relate to three award-winning Ferrari models. Lotus fans will undoubtedly revel with LO11 TUS while Lamborghini drivers will be attracted by LAM 80M and L411 MBO.
Those looking for the quirky, fun-related, registrations there are many such as 121 DAD for the devoted son or daughter looking to buy their beloved a Father’s Day gift alongside F111 TTY, OGO 55H and TR18 UTE.
Jody Davies, DVLA Personalised Registrations’ Senior Sales Manager, said: “2017 was yet another hugely successful year for our sales of personalised registrations and, if the array we’ve managed to arrange for this, our first live sale of 2018 is anything to go by, we are confident that success will be repeated.”
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 There is a maximium fine of £1000, and the registration number can be withdrawn without compensation.
