The DVLA are already reaping the rewards from their early release of their 2011 series of personalised registrations.
The 11 series will be added to vehicles from the 1st March 2011, but the DVLA are giving people the chance to get their hands on some extra special registrations early.
One of the registrations to really catch the eye is DE11 BOY, a representation of Only Fools and Horses’ cheeky Del Boy.
Using numbers to represent letters is commonplace in the hunt for personalised registrations, with changes like 5 often representing and ‘S’, 3 in place of ‘E’, and 8 substituted for ‘B’.
Some of the 11-series number plates that have caught the public eye include BU11 DOG, GA11 0PS, WE11 BAD and FA11 GUY.
So far this month, the sale brought in a staggering £12.5 million into the government funds, just on the first day.
Some even more expensive plates have been held back for future auctions, with some reserve prices set to edge the £10,000 mark.
With DE11 BOY set to go to auction in the New Year and is widely expected to sell for thousands.
The range of personalised number plates will have to stay within the boundaries of taste and decency, however, as a team of DVLA employees work hard to prevent any from slipping through the net.
Some of the plates that have been restricted from release include BU11 ETS, PO11CE and TA11BAN.
Don’t miss out on some of the best number plates to ever go under the hammer.
Some bargains are set to go on offer at the next of the DVLA’s number plate auction, taking place at the Imperial War Museum, Manchester, Cheshire on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th February, 2011.
