  • DVLA Personalised Registrations Sets Fifth Successive Record-breaking Year!

    December 7, 2016

    911 O

    DVLA Personalised Registrations has had cause to celebrate after recording a record-breaking year for its live auction programme – for the fifth consecutive year.

    The fifth and final auction of 2016 held at The Hanbury Manor Hotel in Hertfordshire recently raised a total of £5.1 million, the second highest sum from the DVLA’s five auctions of the year, and in doing so increased the total amount generated for the year to a staggering £25.6 million, £2.6 million more than 2015’s recording-setting season.

    The record-breaking sum takes the amount raised by the Agency through its sales of personalised registrations in 2016 to a total of £147 million.

    Incredibly, DVLA Personalised Registrations has witnessed a 150 per cent increase in registered bidders since 2011 with an average of 9,600 registering to participate per sale in 2016.

    At Hanbury Manor, 911 O proved to be the event’s highest-selling registration after fetching £33,500 while the event’s opening lot, 110 A, was close behind with the auctioneers’ gavel falling on £31,000. The registration 400 B was the third highest-selling registration, selling for £29,400.

    Adam Griffiths, of DVLA Personalised Registrations, said: ““If ever there was proof that the Great British motorist has a love affair with personalised registrations then our continued sales success is it. Once again we have cause to celebrate another record-breaking year made possible, not just by the high-selling, headline making, registrations, but the scores of those that sell for hundreds of pounds that make them far more affordable.”

  • DVLA Personalised Registrations Poised to Make Fifth Record Breaking Year

    November 17, 2016

    The great British motorists’ love affair with personalised registrations shows no sign of abating with DVLA Personalised Registrations once again poised to set its fifth consecutive record-breaking year for its live auction programme.

    Twelve months on from recording £22.91 million for 2015 and the highest figure in its 26-year history, the Agency is hoping to re-write the record books once again as it has already raised a total in excess of £20.5m with the final three-day auction of the year poised to get underway at the Hanbury Manor Hotel, Hertfordshire, on Wednesday, November 23.

    Putting the continual success into perspective, the final three-day sale of 2015 was the first since 2006 to raise more than £5m and yet the four live auctions of 2016 have averaged £5.2m per sale – with £5.6m being recorded as highest selling sale of the year so far at the Oxford Belfry Hotel in May. Each auction recorded sales conversions in excess of 99.5 per cent.

    That means if the final sale of the year follows the same successful pattern, the Agency could well bank a total in excess of £25 million.

    What further underpins the phenomenal success of 2016 is that the Agency reduced the number of lots per auction from 1,600 to 1,500 to try and reduce the length of time per daily event.

    Such is the popularity of the DVLA Personalised Registrations sales, the Agency has witnessed a 150 per cent increase in registered bidders since 2011 with an average of 9,600 registering to participate per sale in 2016.

    Adam Griffiths, of DVLA Personalised Registrations, said: “While we experience the popularity of our sales during our events, our latest figures reveal beyond any doubt the phenomenal year-on-year growth in the sales of personalised registrations we’ve recorded since 2006 and that is purely down to motorists’ desire to own their personalised registration.

    “Factors such as the increasing number of registered bidders and, in particular the increased use of our online and telephone bidding services, meant we were finding ourselves auctioning well into the evening. We have tried to address that by reducing the number of lots per sale by 100 and yet, as our sales figures show, the sums that change hands and our sales conversions just keep escalating.”

    He added: “We have once again collated a wide and varied mix of registrations to suit all tastes for our final live auction of the year so, hopefully, we will once again record a record-breaking year.”

    DVLA Personalised Registrations’ forthcoming auction will consist of a total of 1,500 registrations, all chosen to offer a selection to suit all tastes, styles and budgets.

  • DVLA’s September Live Auction Achieves Nearly 99% Conversion Rate

    September 30, 2016

    The public’s demand for personalised registrations certainly shows no signs of abating – especially if the autumn auction staged at Eastwood Hall, Nottinghamshire, is any measurement.

    The three-day event proved to be another outstanding sale with a nearly 99 per cent sales conversion, raising a total of around £5.0 million for the Treasury.

    Lot 1301 – 5 UV – became the event’s highest selling registration when it eventually fell under the gavel for £51,000 with the buyer declaring that he’d bought it specifically with the SUV – the commonly used acronym for the widely used Sports Utility Vehicle phrase. The impressive sum effectively making 5 UV the most expensive SUV-related registration auctioned by the DVLA with 1 SUV being the previously top-selling equivalent when it was auctioned at the Tankersley Manor Hotel in February for £46,200.

    675 M – clearly because of its close links to the McLaren 675 supercar – was the second highest-selling personalised registration when it fetched £30,500 while 321 O held the third spot, selling for £29,000. The Top Five table was completed by KN16 HTS and 500 OOO, selling for £28,500 and £25,000 respectively.

    It’s worth noting that when the auctioneers’ hammer came down on 5 UV, it became the third-highest selling personalised registration of 2016, behind 60 O (£95,000) and 918 S (£66,000) both of which were sold during the Agency’s sale at the Oxford Belfry Hotel in May.

    Australian ex-pat Adam Plater, who has lived in the UK for 16 years since leaving his hometown of Melbourne, arrived at the Nottinghamshire venue just in time to buy AUS 511E for a hammer price of £3,000. The registration will now sit proudly alongside the AUS 11E registration he’s owned for several years.

    Adam Griffiths, of DVLA Personalised Registrations, said: “Once again we have managed to serve up a huge eclectic array of personalised registrations that suited all tastes and budgets.”

    He added: “Our four live auctions of 2016 have amassed a total exceeding £20 million which is quite phenomenal and, thanks to our offering this autumn, our success has continued.”

  • AUS 511E Delight as the DVLA Serve Up a Superb Registration for Australian Expats

    September 20, 2016

    Australian expats living in the UK can literally show their love for their country on their pride and joy – thanks to DVLA Personalised Registrations!

    For the registration AUS 511E – which is clearly an abbreviation for the well-used term of endearment – is among the first of 1,500 lots being auctioned by the DVLA during its live three day autumn auction being held at Eastwood Hall, Nottingham, from Wednesday, September 21.

    Lot 64, which has a £250 reserve, is just one of the huge array of registrations, from those with close links to names and sports cars to those deemed as pure and simple fun and being offered by the Agency.

    The DVLA has even served up a registration which will surely stir the interest with fans of the Star War movies with JED 1A (£500).

    Those proving popular include BA12 RRY (reserve £400), ELS 44 (£1,200), GAZ 211 (£300) and KN16 HTS (£700) to NSX 3 (£400) and MCL 658S (£250) for Honda NSX and McLaren supercars. For businesses top of the list has to be NEW 100K (£250) and THE 800T (£250).

    Adam Griffiths, of DVLA Personalised Registrations, said: “Once again we have managed to serve up a huge eclectic array of personalised registrations to suit all tastes and budgets.”

    He added: “Our three live auctions of 2016 have amassed a total exceeding £15.3 million which is quite phenomenal and, thanks to our offering this autumn I’m hopeful our success is likely to continue.”

  • Diehard England Fan Secures DVLA Personalised Registrations World Cup Winning Commemorative Registration

    July 28, 2016

    WC66 ENG William Soubry

    A diehard England fan from the Midlands will be able to pin his colours to his car after successfully buying WC66 ENG – the personalised registration released by the DVLA to commemorate England’s historic World Cup victory of 1966.

    The bidder, who wished to remain anonymous, paid a total of £4,350 for the personalised registration when it was auctioned during the Agency’s live summer auction at the Morgan motor factory in Malvern.

    The registration was one of more than 1,466 successfully auctioned during the three-day event which amassed a total of £4.65 million for the Treasury.

    While WC66 ENG proved hugely popular and garnered national media attention, it wasn’t the event’s highest seller, that honour belonged to 111 O which went under the hammer for a total of £54,500 just seconds after 85 O sold for an impressive £52,500 total. The third highest-selling registration was 145 S which changed hands for a total price of £32,400.

    Adam Griffiths, of DVLA Personalised Registrations, said: “Prior to WC66 ENG going under the hammer we had hoped that it would be sold to a true England football support and it appears that is exactly the case. While the bidder has asked to remain anonymous I would like to congratulate whoever it is for their steely determination as it was hotly contested.”

    Adam added: “Our third live auction of personalised registrations of the year once again proved to be a resounding success. Incredibly, our three day event attracted more than 9,000 registered bidders which is a phenomenal achievement.”

  • DVLA Personalised Registrations Commemorates England’s Historic World Cup Win

    July 18, 2016

    WC66 ENGA personalised registration commemorating England’s world cup victory of 1966 is being auctioned by the DVLA – almost exactly 50 years to the day since that historic win.

    The registration WC66 ENG will be among 1,500 being auctioned during the Agency’s live summer three-day sale at the famed Morgan motor factory in Malvern from Wednesday, July 20.

    WC66 ENG – or lot 1,368 – will go under the hammer with a £400 reserve during the closing stages of the event on Friday afternoon – July 22nd, eight days prior to the 50th anniversary since England’s 4-2 defeat of West Germany.

    Adam Griffiths, of DVLA Personalised Registrations, said: “We wanted to commemorate England’s World Cup win of 1966 in some way and then, after researching the possibilities, we discovered the WC66 ENG new-style combination was available. Hopefully, it’ll find its way to a fan.”

    As usual, DVLA Personalised Registrations has brought together an eclectic mix of personalised registrations to suit all tastes and budgets. For Loch Ness Monster hunters there’s NES 511E (reserve £250) and for the arty types there’s ART 115T (£250) that sit alongside a variety of ‘names’ such as C41 RLS (£250), DR12 AKE (£700), FL11 OYD (£700) and HO11 DGE (£400).

  • DVLA Personalised Registrations Once Again Raises the Bar for its Live Auction Programme

    June 8, 2016

    Gary Earle

    DVLA Personalised Registrations’ official auctioneer Gary Earle taking a bid for the 60 O registration which eventually fell under his gavel for a total of £123,200 during the Agency’s second live sale of 2016.

     

    60 O

    The popularity in personalised registrations shows no abating as the DVLA recorded yet another phenomenal three-day live auction.

    For the third successive sale the Agency was rewarded with a sales conversion in excess of 99 per cent and went onto raise a total of £5.6 million, the highest amount since its celebratory 100th anniversary sale in April 2006.

    The latest in a long line of the O-series of registrations – 60 O – proved to be the highest-selling registration at the Oxford Belfry Hotel. After a frenetic bidding war, the registration eventually fell to a mystery bidder for £95,000, taking the total sum to be paid to £123,200. The registration 918 S fell under the gavel for £66,000, taking the total price to pay to £85,000 while 124 J became the third highest-selling registration after going under the hammer for a total of £42,200.

    While those registrations undoubtedly grabbed the headlines, 25 per cent of the 1,500 lots on offer were sold for £1,000 or less. Significantly, the average price per lot was £2,843 which is a five per cent increase over February’s record-breaking auction held at the Tankersley Manor Hotel in Yorkshire.

    Adam Griffiths, of DVLA Personalised Registrations, said: “The popularity in personalised registrations shows no signs of slowing up. Our three-day sale in Oxfordshire once again proved a phenomenal success for the Agency and long may it continue.”

    The third live DVLA Personalised Registrations auction of 2016 will take place at the Morgan car factory in Malvern from Wednesday, July 20.

  • DVLA Oxford Belfry Hotel Auction Best Result in 10 Years

    May 26, 2016

    The DVLA Live Auction at the Oxford Belfry Hotel finished with over 99% of the registrations sold and a total of £4.3 million hammer price. This makes it the highest result since the DVLA’s 100th Auction way back in 2006.

  • DVLA Personalised Registrations Gears Up for Second Sale of 2016

    May 16, 2016

    DVLA Personalised Registrations will be aiming to surpass its recent run of record-breaking fortunes when its second live sale of 2016 gets underway at The Oxford Belfry Hotel this week.

    The Agency is hopeful to secure its first ever complete sell out when 1,500 personalised registrations go under the auctioneers’ hammer at the Oxfordshire venue over the course of three days from Wednesday, May 18.

    And the signs are looking favourable. Such is the continued rise in popularity for personalised registrations, during the first auction of the year held in February all but three lots were sold – ensuring that for its third successive live auction, its sales conversion surpassed 99 per cent – and in doing so recorded sales in excess of £5.3 million for its second successive live auction.

    For the supercar owners, the DVLA has assembled a raft of Ferrari-related registrations such as F458 FUN (reserve £250), F488 GTS (£250) and 488 T (£2,500), there’s also a couple related to McLaren cars such as the 570 MCL (£1,200) and MCL 540C (£250). For the legendary Honda NSX there’s 2 NSX (£400) and 918 S (£2,500) would sit perfectly on a Porsche 918 hybrid hypercar.

    As usual, the DVLA has brought together a raft of ‘fun’ personalised registrations such as EYE 820W (£250), BAR 811E (£250), CAB 131E (£250), 64 MER (£1,200) and P455 BYE (£250) that sit alongside a variety of ‘names’ such as BER 711E (£250), BL14 AKE (£400), F415 SAL (£250), L154 COX (£250) and WR16 HTS (£700).

    Adam Griffiths, of DVLA Personalised Registrations, said: “We have experienced a record-breaking run of sales over the last 18 months or so, success that continued with our first auction of 2016 when all but three lots were sold.

    “We’ve carefully put together another blend of personalised registrations to suit all tastes and, above all, budgets. This, combined with the ever-growing trend in popularity the public have with personalised registrations, we are extremely confident that our run of successful sales will continue at The Oxford Belfry. Who knows, but this could be our first sale whereby every lot is sold.”

  • DVLA Personalised Registrations One Step Closer To Complete Sell-out!

    March 4, 2016

    DVLA Personalised Registrations is edging ever closer to its first sell-out success after all but three of the 1,500 registrations up for auction last week were sold during three days of frantic bidding.

    For the third successive live auction the Agency recorded a 99 per cent-plus sales conversion while last week’s event staged at the Tankersley Manor Hotel near Barnsley became the DVLA’s second in succession to raise more than £5.3 million in total.

    With a hammer price of £46,500, 675 LTS became the event’s highest-selling personalised registration. The much talked about 1 SUV – perfect for the sports utility vehicle market – was its second highest seller when it was bought by the family-owned SUV specialist dealers, Saxton 4×4 of Chelmsford, Essex, for £46,200.

    A company spokesman, said: “We’re one of the largest SUV car dealerships in the country so when we were notified 1 SUV was being auctioned, we just knew we had to have it – it’s the perfect marketing tool for our business which is why it will be placed straight onto one of the last ever Land Rover Defenders’ ever made.”

    With a record 10,440 registered bidders signed up for the first auction of the year, it appears the record-breaking success of 2015 has continued. Adam Griffiths, of DVLA Personalised Registrations, said: “Last year was our most successful since the Agency started selling personalised registrations in 1989 and it appears that success is continuing.

    “To auction all but three registrations is nothing short of remarkable but, in truth, is a direct reflection of the popularity that personalised registrations has become to the British motorist.”

  • DVLA Personalised Registrations Serve Up Ultimate SUV Registration!

    February 23, 2016

    1 SUV

    The long-standing debate on which car should wear the ultimate SUV moniker will be decided during the first live DVLA Personalised Registrations auction of 2016.

    For the Registration 1 SUV – arguably the perfect personalised registration to complete the ultimate Sports Utility Vehicle – will go under the auctioneers hammer during this week’s three-day event being held at Tankersley Manor Hotel near Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

    The registration, which sports a £2,400 reserve, is one of two prime SUV-related registrations in the line-up of 1,500 lots being offered from Wednesday, February 24.

    The DVLA will be aiming to surpass the success it achieved in 2015, officially the most successful year for DVLA Personalised Registrations’ live auction programme. Its phenomenal success was cemented after its final sale of the year held near Cheltenham became the Agency’s first auction since 2006 to break the £5 million mark while three of the five auctions staged in 2015 recorded 99 per cent sales conversions. The Agency also set a new sales record for current-style registrations when KR15 HNA sold in May for £233,360.

    And if the line-up of registrations for the first sale of the year is anything to go by, that success could well continue as the popularity in personalised registrations grows. With a heady mix of named-related registrations like BA65 HAW which boasts a £700 reserve, FA12 LEY (£700), FA15 SAL (£700) and GEO 129E (£250) included in the 1,500 on offer. There’s a raft for supercar lovers including 488 GTS (£1,200), 650 MCL (£1,200) and 993 RSR (£1,200) which relate to Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche cars. For the fun factor, the DVLA has served up SKA 80Y (£300), WH15 PER (£700) and 51 XTY (£1,200) to name three.

    Adam Griffiths, of DVLA Personalised Registrations, said: “Everyone in the industry knows there’s a huge debate on which car is the ultimate SUV. While we aren’t qualified to judge which vehicle is the best on the market, we are offering what we believe to be the ultimate in SUV-related personalised registrations in 1 SUV and SUV 70Y.”

    He added: “Last year was the Agency’s most successful since we started selling personalised registrations in 1989 and the crop of personalised registrations we’ve lined up for this sale combined with the continued interest from motorists could ensure that success continues.”
