Last year over 600 people bought a personalised registration from DVLA between Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, with 90 of those purchasing on Christmas Day before 9am.

DVLA sold more than 32,000 personalised registrations between December 1 and 25 in 2018.

DVLA Chief Executive Julie Lennard said: "With millions of registrations available to suit all tastes, and with prices starting at £250, there’s still time to find that perfect present - even if it is on Christmas morning."

A personalised registration with the person’s name may be the ideal gift as three out of four motorists said they would prefer a registration that bears their name.

The top three search terms on the DVLA Personalised Registrations website are currently ‘Sam’, ‘Dan’ and ‘Tom’, but no matter what a person is called they can search for their ideal personalised registration online.
