Bidders set for number plate auction

Bidders set for number plate auction Image

The company responsible for creating personalised number plates in the UK has reported massive interest in an auction of 1,500 unique registrations.

The three-day event begins on September 6 and almost 4,300 individuals have signed up to bid on number plates, DVLA Personalised Registrations revealed.

The Olympic-themed auction is being held at Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge, Surrey, with lot one kicking things off with the 600 A number plate.

Registered bidders get free admission to the Mercedes museum, as well as the chance to experience a free "hot lap" ride around the circuit in a top of the range Mercedes.

Personalised number plates are suitable for new and used cars, although it is illegal to get a plate that makes a car appear younger than it actually is.

DVLA Personalised Registrations' marketing manager, Damian Lawson, said: "Personalised registrations have always proven extremely popular with British motorists and our new stance of holding auctions in venues like Mercedes-Benz World which offer a super day out for all the family is clearly proving a successful formula."
