Information on DVLA personalised registrations and Number Plates

All number plates and registration marks mentioned in this site are either issued and controlled by the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency -formerly known as the DVLC , in Swansea) or the DVA NI (Driver and Vehicle Agency Northern Ireland in Coleraine). They are only for display on vehicles registered in the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland.

The DVLA markets and sells previously un-issued personalised registration marks for UK registered vehicles, but does not offer any re-sales facility to owners of private number plates. The term personalised is specifically chosen to explain that whilst these brand new registration numbers originate from the general run of the mill bi-annual issuing sequences, they have been especially selected and withdrawn from general issue, instead being chosen as desirable plates which have certain personal characteristics making them potentially more valuable and cherished.

Twice each year, usually in early December and early June, the DVLA releases these personalized numberplates onto the general market for sale under their Sale of Marks scheme with prices carefully chosen to illustrate the desirability of the personal number plates in question. The DVLA has a pretty good idea of the level of desirability of private registrations as they have been in the business of selling these personal plates since 1989.
DVLA Personalised Registrations also auctions some of what they consider to be their more valuable registration numbers holding about six auctions a year, each selling about 1,500 registration numbers. Full details of each auction are advertised in the press or online.
 
You can purchase or sell any DVLA personalised registration mark through VRM Swansea Plates4 less
