After Auction

What is the procedure for registering a mark bought at auction?

If successful in obtaining a mark at auction, the bidder has to complete a Memorandum of Sale to confirm acceptance of the mark. Within 12 months after the date of being allocated with the mark by auction, the successful bidder has to get the mark assigned to a vehicle registered in his name, otherwise this allocation of the mark may be cancelled by the Transport Department and the mark may be reallocated.

Where will the funds obtained through auctions of marks go?

Funds raised through the auction of vehicle registration marks after deduction of the operation expenses will go to the Government Lotteries Fund, a body that uses the funds for charity.
