This one’s for the ladies…

The DVLA is auctioning off various personalised registrations next Wednesday, including a wide range of female names.

More than 1,500 registrations will be sold over three days during the auction at Twickenham, and bidders attending will also be able to tour the historic Twickenham rugby station as part of the proceedings.

Jody Davies, events manager for the DVLA auction, said: “There’s no denying it that personalised registrations have always been popular with the ladies and next week’s sale will be no exception with the line-up of lots we have put together.”

Among the number of ladies names will be CA12 RLA and RE63 KAH, both of which have starting prices of £900, according to the DVLA.

Other number plates up for auction will include CH10 LOE, KYM 1H and VER 2A, while men named Adrian or Steve will be in with a chance of taking home ADR 214N and ST11 EVE plates.


Last year’s auction saw the most expensive female-name plate sold in recent times, with CO11 EEN being sold for a record £38,850 last November.

The DVLA events manager said: “We were overjoyed at the interest surrounding CO11 EEN and, with the way events are shaping up, next week’s sale at Twickenham looks equally as exciting.

“2014 has been yet another hugely successful year for our auction programme. The sums generated, not just surrounding our headline-grabbing high valued registrations, but also those listed with relatively low reserves, have been phenomenal.”

DVLA auctions

In total, the three auctions held by the DVLA for personalised registrations this year has raised £10.4 million.

Since the DVLA started selling personalised plates 25 years ago, the government agency has raised over £2 billion for HM Treasury.

Even if you can’t make it to the DVLA auction, Perrys are now stocking a wide range of brand-new 64 plate cars which you can buy today.

While a new 64 plate mightn’t necessarily have the personal touch that a specifically personalised number plate has, there’s still the opportunity to show off your latest car and registration.

There’s still the opportunity to get your hands on some personal plates, however. For instance, a couple due to get married this year might be interested in a plate that reads EN64 GED.
