Live Internet Bidding

Live Internet bidding is available at DVLA Personalised Registrations auctions. This is a service where your online bids are presented to the auctioneer during the auction, to be accepted or rejected as though you were present at the auction hall. This is not an 'eBay' type auction.

Follow the steps below to register as an Internet Bidder for the next auction:

Speed Test

Step 1 - Speed Test

To check that your connection speed is adequate, click here to run the Speed Tester.

Step 2 - Registering as a Bidder


After you have completed the Speed Test successfully, now register for the auction online (or by using the Registration form in the catalogue). You must register specifically for Internet Bidding if you wish to place live bids online during the sale. If you register for other means of bidding (by phone, post or in person), you are not automatically registered for Internet Bidding. Click here to register.
