DVLA number plates or DVLA registrations are the number plates which the DVLA retail or auction under the DVLA Registrations brand.
Instead of buying from a private number plate seller or a number plate dealer you may be able to buy your desired number plate directly from the DVLA.
Often this is the most cost effective way to purchase a registration number as you are buying direct and in effect "cutting out the middleman"
Where to buy DVLA number plates

As with anything- shopping around and comparison is a fruitful exercise- why buy A1ABC from the DVLA for £2000 when A2ABC is for sale by a private seller for £200?
