Personalised plates for motorbikes nsw

Motorists wanting to add some cachet to their driving experience have been bidding in a government auction of personalised number plates.
They won't get you from A to B any quicker, and will probably earn a sneer from fellow drivers, but what do Betsy, Paul and Roy care? The licence plates BET 55Y, PAU 111L and 34 ROY were among several hundred personalised registrations sold off this week by the DVLA. For thousands of car drivers personalised number plates are a prize possession; a statement of individuality in a world of faceless conformity, and a neat investment. To others though they're an ostentatious waste of cash; a self-aggrandising statement of ego over commonsense. The plate currently adorns his new Bently Blower, but at times "it's been a toss up whether it or the car has been more valuable" says the ex-DJ. And while Travis has no problem advertising his whereabouts in such a way - "I'm of the old school" - it has at times caused him inconvenience. Such criminal intent could hardly have been conceived when first ever number plate, A1, was issued in 1903. Somewhat paradoxically, personalised plates have become so common these days they have lost their exclusive tag, says Andrew English, motoring correspondent for the Daily Telegraph.
There had long been a lively second-hand trade in classic or "cherished" personalised plates. As Arthur Daley might say, it's become a nice little earner for HM Government - raising ?1.2bn to date.
Boy racers are the "least likely customer", says Mr Davies, whose customer base takes in doctors, lawyers, van drivers and cleaners.


And often viewed as a "total vanity" purchase, a personalised plate can be a shrewd investment "if bought wisely".
According to one industry tale, a haulage company had a fleet of lorries that all had personalised number plates with the company's name in them. But the only acceptable reason for someone to buy one is to avoid a dreaded Q number plate, says Mr English. The article does miss one important point about personalised plates - they hide the age of your car. Personalised plates are CL8R1Y a very poor idea but it appears they are becoming more and more common to express ones individuality. I always think they are amusing and want to shout out the "name" of the person if thats what the plate is about. They're only naff when the Darren's and Dave's bend the letters or put the screws through in such a way to make them read as something they're not, otherwise they're just a bit of fun.

The plate was pinched by a fan some years back, reducing Travis to scrawl "1 DLT" on a piece of paper. Earl Russell is said to have camped outside the vehicle registration office to get the prestigious plate. Before then, new cars were registered by the local authority in which they had been bought. People can also ask for specific number and letter combinations, which are issued provided they have never been sold or allocated before.


Andrew Oswald, a professor of economics at Warwick University who has studied such sales, not surprisingly concluded it's all about status.
You can't say that about these plates as they do nothing, it makes them a very pure indicator of how people see their status. Prices start from ?185 and most people spend around ?300, but he has customers who are willing to pay over ?100,000.
I am most put off by the illegal ones, ie the ones which are clearly personalised with illegal spacing and characters to boot, generally attempting to spell the owners name. Instead of having a government issue random set of characters taking pride of place at the front and back of our cars, we have a plate than means something to us. Is the sale of similar goods on the Internet leaving you with a stock room full of goods that you cannot sell?
The single digit 1 at the start of a plate is highly prized, as is one beginning with the letter S.
It is associated with badly-made cars and as a result it has a stigma, which can reduce the value of a vehicle.
