Now, get your favourite number plate online
The RTA announced on Wednesday that customers can now check out both available and unavailable numbers as well as those that are likely to be available in the future.
Sultan Al Marzouqi, director of Vehicle Licensing at the RTA’s Licensing Agency, said: “This service does not only allow customers to enquire and buy the current codes, but also future codes (Up to Z). Customers can log onto RTA’s website (www.rta.ae) by clicking ‘Inquiring about Distinctive Number Plates’ to know about the available numbers and buy them online.”
He added that the system has been developed and programmed to provide information about available and unavailable numbers along with their prices.
The system also enables enquiring about numbers in four different ways: by code, by number of digits, by entering the numbers required, or by the price.
The RTA also offers distinguished number plates through online auction as well as through live auctions, drawing huge interests from enthusiasts with some plates going for millions of dirhams.
Last year, the single-digit plate D5 was auctioned for Dh33 million, the highest priced number in Dubai.
A TOTAL of 58 number plates are due to go under the hammer at Highlands College next week as part of an auction organised by the Infrastructure Department.
During the last two events, the auction raised more than £421,750 with the money going towards buying equipment for Driver and Vehicle Standards – the department’s authority which oversee the registration of the Island’s vehicles.
In 2013 one anonymous individual paid £71,000 for the plate JSY 1.
Infrastructure Minister Eddie Noel said that he was expecting one number plate to receive particular interest from bidders this year.
Valuing private car number plates can be an art as much as a science. You can’t just type in the letters and numbers to a software programme, input some variables, and get a reliable valuation out of the other end. So, if you are hoping to find out how much your personalised number plate is worth, there is a range of factors you need to take into account.
