On the 17th June over 1,700 personalised registration plates went under the hammer at the DVLA’s three-day special event being staged at City Hall in London.
Personal plates can prove to be extremely useful to small businesses and van fleet operators as an advertising platform and therefore the first of these events to be held in the capital in over a decade will appeal strongly to many small business owners.
However there’s tough competition to get hold of some of the most sort-after plates. Two of the top three positions in the DVLA’s league table of football club-related registrations are held by London clubs. WE57 HAM and AR53 NAL were auctioned in 2007 and 2004 for £57,000 and £36,000 respectively. V1 LLA holds the third spot, selling for £35,000 in November 2000. So if you are looking to support a club on your van, you might have to sell it first to afford the plate…
FU11 HAM is among 1,750 registrations collated for the sale, many of which have direct links to this summer’s Olympic Games as DVLA Personalised Registrations has been appointed as one of the official licensees of London 2012. If you want a plate to advertise your business or support for the games, you’d better hurry.
With registrations like 2012 OG, GO11 DEN, WON 601D, DVLA Personalised Registrations has gone to great lengths to ensure van drivers can show their support for the London 2012 Olympics.
