30 years of Personalised Registrations for Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency

Auction Home

DVLA holds 5 Live and 4 Timed Auctions of DVLA Personalised Registrations each year. Bidding in person is by far the most popular way to buy a registration and it is at the auction where you will find the real atmosphere. If you can't make it to the auction we offer free telephone, internet and absent bidding facilities. Our partners BCA organise our auctions, and you can visit them at dvlaauction.co.uk.
