Topical Plate Registration!
Step 6. Timing is everything
Sometimes an event or period of time can markedly influence the value of your plate. During the Queen’s Jubilee, JUB113E would have a lot more value. Wouldn’t it would perfectly suit one of Maam’s Bentleys. During the Olympics or other sporting events perhaps M4DAL or RUN800M would command a much higher value.
Think to the future as well. If England win the World Cup in 2018, how much would CUP 18 be worth? How much would John Terry pay for it? More than he earns in a week? Probably not. He earns a lot of money a week. £150,000 apparently. He’d have enough in less than 2 weeks to buy GS1 Goal Scorer 1 perhaps?
Please note: At the end of 2013 all 39 local DVLA offices closed and the DVLA transferred all dealings to its national centre at Swansea. If your vehicle was registered before the end of 2013 then the street view map shown on the car registration page will point to the original office despite the fact that the office has closed.
