DVLA returns to Rudding Park

DVLA Personalised Registrations is taking the unprecedented step of returning to the same auction venue - less than six months after the hammer came down at Rudding Park in Harrogate, Yorkshire.

Last October’s three-day sale was so successful with £4.13 million being banked for the Treasury, the Agency is returning to the same venue at its earliest opportunity.

Damian Lawson, DVLA Personalised Registrations’ Marketing Manager, said: “Rudding Park proved to be an outstanding venue for our auction last October, making an almost instant return seemed an obvious decision.

“Since last October we have held auctions at Ardencote Manor in Warwickshire and the Imperial War Museum in Manchester, those venues were booked a long time ago.  While we normally stagger our venue choice to one visit every year or, in some cases, every couple of years, we were all unanimous in returning to Harrogate at the first available opportunity.”

DVLA Personalised Registrations will be adhering to its familiar format of auctioning 1,500 registrations over three consecutive days commencing on Tuesday, March 22.

While Rudding Park proved a successful and well liked venue, the real success behind the sale was the superb selection of personalised registrations being offered – and again that is being replicated this spring.

Reserves on registrations range from as little as £250 through to £10,000 for the event’s “star” plate – 13 O. So far, DVLA has reaped more than £1.3 million from is O-Series encompassing registrations 1 O, 2 O and 1 OOO to list three. Indeed, the registrations 11 O and 4 OOO banked a total of £52,435 when the fell under the hammer at Rudding Park last October.

In total, DVLA’s forthcoming auction will comprise 1,500 registrations chosen to offer  an eclectic mix to suit all tastes, styles and budgets including; ABO 88Y (reserve £400), AHA 554N (£400), A151 NGH (£400), BMW 330D (£400), CAR 805S (£400), FLY 10W (£400),  13 O (£10,000), 800 OO (£3,000), 6 OOO (£4,000), OUR 80Y (£400), RAJ 44V (£400), RFC 80Y (£400), TVR 70Y (£450), 1111 V (£2,700), 1111 VV (£2,300), WHY 570P (£350), YEP 805S (£400), YVE 777E (£400), Y455 SER (£350).
