Limited-edition license plate auction coming to Dubai

Fancy kitting out your car in Dubai with a number plate that really tells the world a bit more about you? Favourite number, anniversary or birthday perhaps?

Well, the RTA has announced a new plates auction (it’s 104th open auction, don’t you know), which will be taking place on Saturday March 14 in Al Habtoor City.

According to the RTA, there will be 90 “fancy” plates up for grabs across two, three, four or five digits variations.

It’s not the only fancy plate you can get your hands on in Dubai right now, since there is a limited edition set of Expo 2020-inspired license plates, too – click here for more information on that.

If you’d like to take part, you need to make sure you’ve registered online at the RTA website by Sunday March 8.

To register, you need to have a traffic file in Dubai, and be able to submit a deposit security cheque of Dhs25,000.

There’s also an auction fee of Dhs120, which can be paid either online at, or at the customer happiness centre in either Al Barsha, Deira or Umm Al Ramool.

“Through offering distinctive licensing plates at open or online auctions, RTA is seeking to provide a transparent platform that avails fair opportunities to all bidders. Such plates are appealing to passionate clients seeking numbers that symbolise important events in their lives,” said Director of Vehicle Licensing, Licensing Agency at RTA Jamal Al Sadah.

Go on. You’ll be able to bag yourself a swanky new plate.
