  • DVLA Personalised Registrations Sales Success Story Continues

    March 9, 2017

    111 G

    DVLA Personalised Registrations’ impressive sales success continued from where it left 2016, with the Agency’s first live sale of the year once again proving a phenomenal success.

    For the fourth successive live auction, the Agency recorded a sales conversion of more than 99 per cent during the three-day event held at The Casa Hotel in Chesterfield, raising a staggering £5.2 million total including fees.

    With a hammer price of £40,000, 111 G and 72 O ended up as the event’s highest-selling personalised registrations while 400 O, 500 M and 1 KUL completed the sale’s Top Five high sellers table, fetching £30,500, £30,000 and £27,500 respectively. There was something on offer to suit all tastes and budgets, with the vast majority of the 1,500 registrations available selling for £1,500 or less.

    With more and more people registering to bid, it appears that the record-breaking success of 2016 continues. Adam Griffiths, of DVLA Personalised Registrations, said: “Last year was our most successful since the Agency began selling personalised registrations in 1989 and this has been a really great start to 2017.

    “To once again auction all but a handful of registrations is nothing short of remarkable but, in truth, is a direct reflection of the just how popular personalised registrations have become with the British motorist.”

  • DVLA Personalised Registrations 2017 Live Auction Programme Set to Get Underway

    February 20, 2017

    DVLA Personalised Registrations’ 2017 live auction programme gets underway this week with the Agency’s latest three-day sale being held at The Casa Hotel in Chesterfield.

    The event – which commences on Wednesday 22 February – will see a total of 1,500 personalised registrations being auctioned to members of the public.

    The registrations on offer have been chosen by DVLA to suit all tastes, styles and budgets and range from plates that reflect names such as EL17 OTT, HA15 RRY and PA14 ULA through to quirkier offerings such as OUR 848Y, OLD 800K and YOU 105E.  For the child who never grew up, there’s the chance to pay homage to the much-loved comic The Beano with BE11 ANO, while fans of Harry Potter could find themselves spellbound by POT 110N which features in a wide mix of highly distinctive and collectable registrations.

    The Agency will be aiming to build on the success of its live auction programme in 2016, which raised £25.6 million through five sales – setting a new record for a second consecutive year.  Last year, the total sales of personalised registrations by the DVLA surpassed £147 million, taking the total amount amassed since the sales commenced in September 1989 to £2.4 billion. Incredibly, the Agency has witnessed a 150 per cent increase of registered bidders for its live sales since 2011 with, on average, 9,500 customers vying for lots per auction.

    Adam Griffiths, of DVLA Personalised Registrations, said: “It’s been nearly three months since our last live sale, and I am really excited by our first sale of 2017 where some really great registrations are available to bid for.  We have experienced two successive record-breaking years and, when you look through the catalogue at the registrations we have compiled for this sale, I am very hopeful that this success will continue.”

    He added: “Bidding in person is by far the most popular way to buy a registration and it is at the auction where you will find the real atmosphere – it’s a great day out and we make the experience as enjoyable and friendly as possible. If you can’t make it to the auction we offer free telephone, internet and absent bidding facilities”.
