Bahrain First Reg Plates Up For Sale By Auction
Bahrain to introduce private number plates for auction on the 08/04/2017
Manama, Ministry of Interior Undersecretary Shaikh Nasser bin Abdulrahman Al Khalifa, today announced that as part of the directives of Interior Minister Lt-General Shaikh Rashid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, work is underway to introduced special new private vehicle number plates in the Kingdom’s first auction of registration plates.
He stressed that this step is in line with the Kingdom’s commitment to the principles of competitiveness, fairness and sustainability.
The first auction of number plates will be administered by a government company in which the revenues will be referred to the Ministry of Finance. Following the sale of vehicle number at the auction, the General Directorate of Traffic will issue a certificate of ownership to the buyer.
The Interior Ministry Undersecretary clarified that private vehicle number plate already in circulation will remain the property of their current owners, as all the numbers that will be auctioned are new. He said the new auction would provide a simple and accessible for any individual to acquire a private vehicle number plate.
Remember that, despite valuations and estimates, a private number plate is only worth as much as someone will pay for it. You may have loved your personalised number plate because it contains your initials, for example, but if there aren’t many other people with your initials, the plate’s value may be minimal. On the other hand, if you have a plate whose letters contain common or popular names, you may well find that it is in high demand on the market.

Take into account the following criteria when trying to come up with a valuation for your private number plate. You need to look at them all together if you want a realistic price, so you can’t just pick and choose the factors that favour your number plate!
