As it happens, yes. It's now been reported by a second reputable source.

It's taken over a year to sell and was bought for 405. I think people on here should open their minds a little.

H15 LDN could be worth that - perhaps even a bit more too ...

why on earth would someone pay over £
25K for AB11 DHB when they can have AB11 DAB is beyond me - surely someone who may be interested would certainly do some research first !!!!!!!!!!!!!

and my answer to me buying it is - no thank you, I don't think its any good !!

DHB is DHABI without the vowels (in bold) ... a nicer way of abbreviating it cf. "DAB" ...

AB11 DAB has now been sold - we sold this overnight but unfortunately the registration was no longer available ( it takes around 24/48 hours for us to receive updates from the DVLA so this registration would have been sold elsewhere )

Anyone on here purchased the registration ?

The guy lives in Dubai and purchases on behalf of customers who also have vehicles in the UK.

Absolutely no connection to reading the forum - just massive coincidence

coincidence? you sure? where's my cut? :lol:

it's probably due to the coverage AB11 DHB is getting?

These type of registrations are available across the board so if another company sells a registration we would not know until 24/48 hours later - DVLA send all accredited resellers updates but a day or so after registrations become unavailable. ( this only applies to registrations where the full amount has to be paid before it can be secured, this does not apply to any where we require a part payment ).

So although this happens rarely unfortunately it can happen

so in essence you don't have access to what you are selling sometimes!
brilliant - are customers aware of this?

:lol:

of course we have access to what we are selling - we are advised by DVLA ones that are sold so we obviously have permission to advertise and sell them (as do all accredited dealers).

it would be no different to us advertising your registrations - we do not own them but as far as we are aware they would be available unless advised that they have sold.

You sell yours on a Friday but fail to advise us - we then have a buyer on the Monday, we call you to advise buty you say sorry it sold Friday so no longer available.

Faz this is how it works - dealers advertise the following

Own Stock numbers
Other dealers stock
Private individuals numbers
Government Stock

I understand how it works, but I'm old fashioned - sell what you own etc. ...
