Bidding Starts 1 April For Special RIMAU 1 To 9999 Number Plates
No, its not an April's Fool joke. Malaysians looking for unique plates will be able to bid for RIMAU 1 to RIMAU 9999 starting tomorrow, 1 April.
In conjunction with Malaysia hosting the 2017 SEA Games for the ASEAN region this year, these SEA Games commemorative number plates are being released by the Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS) via the Road Transport Department (JPJ).
According to the “RIMAU PLAT” Facebook page set up earlier last month to promote the special plate series, RIMAU which is a short form of the games’ Malayan Tiger mascot stands for Respect, Integrity, Move, Attitude and Unity.
Yesterday, Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin launched the number plate bidding which he announced that the revenue will go towards the cost of hosting the SEA Games and ASEAN Para Games which would take place in August and September respectively.
"All bids will take place through the online bidding e-bid system with the proceeds going towards the cost of hosting KL2017.
"We hope to get as much as possible from the bidding process because not only the number plates are a memento to the people but also the proceeds can be used for financing the organising cost," he told reporters at the launch, Bernama reports.
Transferring from a Retention Certificate to a Vehicle
As before, the online process is the easiest to go through if you want to transfer a registration number currently covered by a retention certificate onto a vehicle. You can do it here.
You can also do it by post. You will need your retention certificate and the vehicle registration certificate of the vehicle you are transferring the registration to.
For both the online and postal methods, you will receive a new vehicle registration certificate in the post.
The current cost for transferring a vehicle registration is £80 and it can take 5-10 days to complete. However, the introduction of the online system has made the process much smoother than it used to be.
