Everything you need to know About Buying Cherished Number Plates
Cherished number plates are very popular and several companies now offer dedicated sites for their auction mostly online. However, the biggest and by far the best is the DVLA.
Every year they hold around six auctions of DVLA personalised registrations at locations throughout Great Britain.
The auction experience is enjoyable and as friendly as possible so that you get a great day out as well as the opportunity to bid for some highly distinctive and collectable registrations. 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. If you can’t make it to the auction there is a free telephone, internet and absent bidding facilities.
Style of registration numbers are offered.
Through our online / telesales business, auctions and tender sales we offer for sale prefix, current style, suffix and dateless registrations.
Current style registrations – consist of two letters, a two-figure age identifier, a space and then finally three letters.
Prefix registrations – those that contain the year identifier at the beginning of a registration. They consist of a letter, one to three numbers, a space and then finally three letters.
Suffix registrations – those that contain the year identifier at the end of a registration. They consist of three letters, a space, one to three numbers, and then finally one letter.
Dateless registrations – do not contain a year identifier and can consist of a number combination followed by a letter combination and vice versa. There is a space between the number and the group of letters.
