These auctions are not held by the DVLA, they are held on behalf of the DVLA by an independent agency, SMA Leeds.
Throughout the year, the DVLA release registrations for auction, which they have withheld and these sales, which we’d be delighted to help you bid at, offer an excellent opportunity to buy unique and prestigious registrations for less than they might command on the commercial market.
Our buyers attend DVLA auctions as a matter of course, and you can expect to gain a significant advantage by asking us to bid on your behalf. We’ll be pleased to advise you on the estimated price at which a mark is likely to be sold, as well as advising on the value of these registrations in the general market.
Unlike other companies we do not charge a percentage related fee. We charge a ‘bidding fee’ of £200 plus VAT (£50+VAT of this is an admin fee which is retained if unsuccessful). You then have to pay the cost of your registration, an auctioneers fee of 8%, VAT and the £80 Department Of Transport transfer fee.
Speedy Registrations can save you the cost of attending the auction, saving on cost of your time, travel and accommodation costs by allowing us to bid for your registration.
Even with all of these added together, buying in a DVLA auction can still work out considerably cheaper than a registration already on the market. If a number you would have liked appears in an auction and you miss it, you will have to pay a significant premium to purchase it later, even if you can find it.
