The new 2017 number plates are out now, so if you if you’ve been thinking of splashing out on a new car, now could be a great time to do it.
The ’17’ registration numbers will be out for six months before ’67’ plates are presented in September, but while any car owner can get up-to-date plates, others opt for something a little cooler than that. It will cost you a little more though.
The Government made more than £25,000,000 through DVLA personalised number plate auctions last year, one of those was purchased by England legend Sir Geoff Hurst, who bought the World Cup-themed WC66 ENG for £4,346.
The ‘66 hat-trick hero has since bought two comparable plates – WC66 SGH and GH66 CUP – and is now looking to sell them.
