Look Who's up for auction: Doctor Who reg plate | Car Talk - Car News Nov 2017

A special DVLA Personalised Registrations sale is expected to spark a bidding war amongst Dr Who fans this evening.

At 5pm today the Agency will auction off the registration 63 WHO, almost precisely 54 years after William Hartnell stepped out as the first Doctor. The first episode aired at 5.15pm on 23 November 1963, so the timing of the sale is bound to spark intense interest.

Jody Davies, DVLA Personalised Registrations’ Senior Sales Manager, said: “We are always looking for personalised registrations that truly stand out and, I’m sure, that for any true Dr Who fan out there 63 WHO could well be ideal.”

The 63 WHO registration is just one of 1,250 being auctioned during the DVLA’s final three-day live auction of the year at Wychwood Park near Crewe.  It is not just Dr Who fans who are catered for at the sale – fans of Manchester’s big two football clubs might want to drive away with MA17 CTY or MA17 UTD depending on their affinity, while with Christmas coming the Doug (DOU 9G), Elliot (ELL 107X), or Paddy (PA11 DDY) in your life could get the perfect present.
Millions of other personalised registrations can also be viewed at DVLA’s Personalised Registrations Official website, www.dvlaregistrations.direct.gov.uk
