Iíve never really been into personal plates, but I notice there is one I quite like at the next auction. Any one got any experience?
Questions:

Is the reserve price show close to the normal selling price?

Is it easy to bid using the internet?

Make sure you buy the plate you think you're buying.

I bought one on there in the last auction. It went well over reserve, but not all of them do. You can mostly tell beforehand which ones will.

I sent a written bid in as I had passed the internet registration deadline.

The best advice is don't buying a "naff" plate (one that you need to explain), or one that needs mis-spacing (as the police are getting stricter over time).

You also have to pay vat, 7.5% buyers premium & the £80 fee on the closing price

How long do you have until you have to put it on a car?

Yes that's right, I forgot the add-on charges.

You have 1 year to put it on a car. You can renew the period for a £25 fee though. Plates are a nice little earner for the government.

You can put it on anytime, or pay them 25 quid a year for filling out a form to put it on retention, money for nothing but hey thats ripoff Britain for ya!
