Capture your memories on car plates

Another chance to have your date of birth or anniversary as your car plate number


Car owners in Dubai will have yet another opportunity to get their special dates as their car plate numbers.

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced the availability of a new series with code ‘W’, allowing people to choose a five-digit number of their choice resembling important dates or events in their lives.

This will see people selecting any five digit number from 1967 to 2018, subject to availability. The numbers could range from birthday, employment date, wedding date, graduation date or any other landmark moment in people’s life.

“Number plates of Code W will be issued, as available, denoting years from 1967 to 2018. The total cost of the plate is Dh1,670,” said Jamal Hashim Al Sada, Director of Vehicles Licensing at RTA.

He added that the special plates could be bought from Customers Happiness Centres across Dubai, service providers, strategic partners, RTA website (, or the smart app (Dubai Drive).

The series ‘W’ comes following the successful launch last year of Codes ‘U’ and ‘V’.
