I have an interesting story, I wanted a GTA plate for, you guessed it, my GTA. I decided that it needed to be as relevant to the car as possible, as it should become a future classic and I plan to look after it.
I experimented using the Norwich Union Direct website to type in various GTA reg plates looking for one that it was unable to identify the make / model of the vehicle from.
Once I found one I approached DVLA who confirmed that it had never been released. I asked if I could buy it and they allowed it to be put into a online auction. They advised me that this would be 4-6 months later.
About 5 months later I got a text, nothing else, say that the reg was in an auction that was due to end 3 weeks later.
I stuck in a entry bid of £250 and waited patiently. I kept this to myself for obvious reasons and I was rewarded with get the plate for the entry bid.
And the plate, V632GTA ... OK, I have put an extra space in, but it looks the business. See my avatar!
