dvla number plate auctions

Post by CynicalRobot » Sun Dec 31, 2017 3:12 pm

Hi All, Happy new years eve to you all!

I am looking at getting a personalised number plate and the one i want is set to "future auction" and has been like this for a good couple of years, Its a 56 plate. I want it as the 56 can look like the letters SC and it makes up part of a word.

Does anyone have much experience in these dvla auctions? Is there any way of finding out if they are looking to add it to an auction anytime soon? I have tried to contact the dvla but i never get any reply to my emails or calls :?

I’m sure if you register your interest with the reg they’ll put it on the auction

I think the only thing you can do is set up an alert for the plate. They inform you when it goes into the auction line

I will give that a go.... this is a little sneaky but do you reckon i should register interest with a few different email accounts and perhaps once they see more "people" interested in it, it might come up for auction sooner?

I don’t think so. Think you’d need more than half a dozen interested parties

What’s the plate you’re trying to buy? Check it on all the resellers sites by way of Google

My private plate was requested to be in an auction. It was a while ago so I can’t quite remember how we did it, but it can be done, as long as it’s not on a car anymore!
