The free prize draw was held to celebrate DVLA’s 25th anniversary of selling personalised registrations and its 150th auction. Anyone who registered to bid at the 150th auction or the auction in Twickenham Stadium in September was entered into the prize draw.

The Mini One, which has low emissions and is manufactured in the UK, was provided by DVLA’s auctioneers at no cost to the taxpayer.

Records broken

The 150th auction held at the Vale of Glamorgan resort in South Wales, saw a new record paid for a registration number. 25 O sold for £518,000, the highest amount paid for a number sold by DVLA.

  • 250 L - £130,328
  • WJP 1 - £27,296
  • CU11 ENS - £26,648
  • 964 RS - £26,259

In total, the 150th auction raised around £4 million for HM Treasury.
