DVLA personalised registration auction comes to Daventry

Hundreds of thousands of pounds are expected to change hands at a personalised number plate auction at Hellidon Lakes, starting on Wednesday May 7.

The event orgnised by the DVLA will run for three days, with hundreds of registrations listed in the auction catalogue.

Reserve prices run from £300 for BII4 TTY, through to £4,000 for 23 O.

HA12 PER is expected to draw particular interest at the sale.

Jody Davies, DVLA Personalised Registrations’ Events Manager, said: “While Harper is a long established surname, clearly it has risen in popularity as a first name over the last couple of years. Incredibly, you can’t get any closer to it than the HA12 PER registration we will be auctioning.”

Other registrations being offered for sale that are proving popular include OR14 NDO, perfect for travel companies or fans of the Florida town, which has a £1,000 reserve. At the other end of the scale, there’s a whole raft of registrations with £400 reserves including FUN 805S, JOY 805S and OOH 805S.

The sale runs from Wednesday May 7 to Friday May 9, at Hellidon Lakes Golf and Spa Hotel, near Hellidon.

A pdf copy of the catalogue is available online at www.dvlauction.co.uk which includes bidder registration forms you need to fill in and take along on the day.
