The U-coded plates are available on a first-come-first-serve basis

Have a particular date that’s special to you?  The RTA are now are giving Dubai’s motorists the opportunity to pick personalised five-digit license plate numbers to forever immortalise important events on the front and rear of their vehicles.

Yep, everything from birthdays to that day you woke up and realised that you’d eaten one too many shawarmas the night before is fair game, provided the date falls between 1967 to 2017.

Customers can purchase the plates for Dhs1,620 from Customer Happiness Centres across Dubai, service providers, strategic partners, the RTA website, or the ‘Drivers & Vehicles’ smart app.

You’ll have to hurry though, as the personalised numbers are only available for U-coded plates and they’re purely on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Although it should be noted that if you are born after the 9th of the month in either October, November or December then you’re out of luck as the license plate will extend into six digits.

This is all part of the next phase of the “Your Memorable Moments on Your Vehicle’s Plate” initiative, which proved to be super popular when the RTA previously rolled it out for S and T-coded plates aimed at millennials spanning the years 1981 to 1998.
