DVLA Personalised Registrations are set to release over 100,000 new K Prefix private number plates. Many of which can make great investments.
Approximately 2500 K-prefix series are expected to sell on day 1 alone netting more than £1million for the government.
K1 NGS famously held the record for a number of years for the most expensive number plate sold at auction when it sold for £185,000 in December 1993, some 27 years ago! In today's money we think it could well top the £400K+ achieved for 25 O in 2014. K4 RLS also fetched good money back in 1999, making £8500+ fees
The new numbers being released are in the range K21, 23-29, 121,123 & 321 followed by 3 letters. In 1992 when the K prefix number plates were first made available, only numbers 1-20 were released with higher numbers remaining as double digits and numbers in the 10's, such as 22, 33,44,55, 50,60,70 80 and so on.
Numbers such as K31 NGS (Kings), K27 YLE (Kyle), K21 AHN (Khan) are just a few examples of what are likely to be popular as well as many of the long 'sold out' names such as KEV, KYM, and KEL, and also initials such as MJK, KJS, KJM.
The number 21 also proves to be a common requirement with many customers looking to mark the special occasion of a son or daughter's 21st birthday. Private number plates have become an ideal gift for young drivers of this age, with many K21 *** registrations being in high demand. See our Birthday number plates page for other ideas
