BRITISH motorists spent a record £87million on personalised number plates last year.

The money went straight into Treasury coffers – and took the sum that the Government has raked in from prized registrations to almost £700MILLION over the past decade.

The most paid to issuer the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency was £254,000 at auction for 51 NGH – spelling the name Singh.

Last year’s plates earned £87.4million – up from £86.1million in 2006 and just £36million in 1997, according to figures unearthed by Lib Dem transport spokesman Norman Baker.

He said: “The Government is happy to turn a blind eye to motorists buying personalised number plates so long as it raises money for the Treasury.

“It makes me wonder if any MPs are among those snapping them up.”

The DVLA has issued personalised registrations since 1989 and stocks more than 27 million.
