H15 MUM and MY09 MUM Personalised Number Plates

Twice the number of Personalised Registrations are now being bought as gifts, research carried out by DVLA Personalised Registrations has shown.

Between 1st October 2008, and 31st January 2009, more than 46 per cent of private plates sold by the DVLA were bought for loved ones compared with 22 per cent five years ago.

Mother's Day, Father's Day and Valentine's Day account for nearly 10 per cent of the sales, with personalised plates bought as Christmas and Birthday proving most popular presents.

DVLA's colossal 30 million-strong library is brimming with plates perfect for that special Mother's Day gift including a series of 'MY MUMs' registrations comprising the letters MY followed by a suitable 'year' and the letters MUM. These include MY09 MUM, MY02 MUM and MY08 MUM.

Damian Lawson, DVLA Personalised Registrations' Marketing Manager, said: "Our research confirms our long-held suspicions that more and more people are buying personalised registrations as gifts. It's hardly surprising, they fall into the rare gift for life category and, with prices starting from £245, they're great value."
