I don't think you can get them for a fixed price from DVLA. A friend of mine recently was looking for a plate and found one he liked on RegTransfers (lets say ABC 1G). They informed him it had never been issued but if there is enough interest, they let DVLA know and it can come up at a future auction. Bit cheeky as they gave a 'price' of £7.5k but again he couldn't buy it for that as it wasn't for sale yet. In the event DLVA release it at auction, they would bid on his behalf, up to a maximum price he agrees. So, why even bother using RT? Surely save your fees, keep and eye on the auctions and bid yourself.Is it possible to buy registrations that are not of the standard registration format e.g. 'CAR 1' for a fixed price from the DVLA? Also, where is the best place to purchase such registrations? Thanks.
