Mark a special occasion on the front of your ride for under Dhs1,700

Is there an important date in your life that you’d like to commemorate by forever emblazoning it on the front of your car? Well, you can now totally do that thanks to a new service offered by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

Perhaps you want to remember an important birthday, or maybe you’d like to mark the day you finally saved up enough cash to buy that Ferrari 488 GTB you’ve always wanted – either way, the RTA is now offering motorists in Dubai the chance to purchase personalised five-digit V-coded number plates.

The plates must mark a special occasion and can be any date between 1967 and 2018. As you’re restricted to only five digits, it looks like anyone born in October, November or December is sadly out of luck.

And at Dhs1,670 per plate, they’re not crazy expensive either. Which is especially true when you consider that this enterprising gentleman spent a whopping 33 million Dirhams on a D5 number plate back in 2016. Yikes.

The ‘Your Memorable Moments on Your Vehicle’s Plate’ initiative rolls out on May 2. Those looking to purchase a personalised plate can do so from any Customer Happiness centre in Dubai or directly through the RTA website.
