DVLA Auction Fees Calculator

DVLA auctions can be fantastic places to acquire previously unissued number plates, however, it’s worth bearing in mind that when you bid in an auction, the amount you bid is not the total price you’ll pay, as there is VAT, the Buyers Premium and the Assignment Fee to pay on top.

You can use our free calculators below to calculate the total cost of a number plate based on how much you bid, or to calculate the highest bid you should place based on your budget.
