As DVLA Personalised Registrations prepares for its 30th anniversary auction this week, it does so buoyed by the knowledge that the popularity in personalised registrations is as prevalent as ever.

Both its spring live auction staged in May and its online Timed Auction held last month recorded their highest number of registered bidders with 12,329 and 9,179 signing up to bid respectively – the live auction recorded a 2,168 increase over its previous highest documented in May, 2018.

With 97 per cent of the 2,250 lots on offer being sold, the Timed Auction set new standards to record the highest sales conversion and the highest average price at £877 per lot for one of its online sales.

The Agency’s two live auctions of 2019 exceeded all expectations, the most recent staged at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Reading witnessed all but six of the 1,250 lots on offer being sold for the average sum per registration of £3,255.

This week will see the Agency return to The Vale Resort near Cardiff for its 30th anniversary auction, five years after last visiting the venue which witnessed ‘industry history’ made when 25 O was bought for a total of £518,000, making it the highest-priced personalised registration bought from DVLA Personalised Registrations to date.

While that may not be surpassed this week, as ever DVLA Personalised Registrations has compiled 1,250 lots to suit all tastes and budgets with reserves ranging from £250 through to £2,500.

Jody Davies, DVLA Personalised Registrations’ Senior Sales Manager, said: “We work extremely hard to ensure the finest personalised registrations are made available for all. As we focus on this summer’s 30th anniversary auction here in south Wales its extremely pleasing to know those efforts are continually well received. Knowing that, so far this year, the numbers of registered bidders are continually increasing bodes well for this, our 30th anniversary auction.”
