DVLA Auction Top 10

May / 22 / 2022

The May 2022 DVLA Auction produced some lofty prices, particularly for the first three lots on price alone. The top plate by price was PAT 3K which is a name related plate with an association to the Swiss Watchmaker PATEK. The second plate in the Top 10 based on price was occupied by 51 TES and we can only speculate that the high price for this plate was paid by a competing bidder intent on securing the number as a name related plate for Tessa…

Toy Story DVLA Auction

Apr / 09 / 2022

The latest DVLA Auction held in April 2022 saw the top plate by value reach a hammer price of £61,010 which is a cash value of £78,337.

However, the plate 51 NGH sold at auction in 2006 with a hammer price of £201,000…

DVLA Auction Results

Jan / 26 / 2022

The DVLA Online Auction held in January 2022 provided some encouragement that affordable numbers can still be purchased at these auctions. There were an increased number of unsold registration numbers at this auction and prices across the range of the available numbers were reasonable. Top prices being paid for obscure dateless registration formats continued with cash prices in excess of £25k paid for 8 XV and £30k paid for 6 XN. The ‘O’ factor also continues as a theme with £89k paid for 75 O….
