Personalised plates brings $15 million in gov’t revenue

Over the course of the first 11 months of this year, the Ministry of Public Works and Transport netted $15.23 million from selling personalised number plates and special number plates for vehicles.

The ministry said on December 1 that it sold 4,802 personalised number plates, earning around $8.5 milion, and 25,364 special number plates nationwide that earned $6.73 million.

Koy Sodany – the ministry’s secretary of state and chairperson of the inter-ministerial commission to manage sales for special and personalised number plates – said the ministry plans to promote the sale of personalised number plates to private companies and to continue their digital advertising campaign.

“The real achievements are how widely advertised the service became and how much more organized our system for making sales has gotten from year to year,” she said.

“Celebrating the two-year anniversary of the launch of the personalised special number system, a workshop was held on the procedures for the sale of personal special registration numbers for cars in the capital and provinces to promote better understanding of it as well as registration of family cars and light vehicles with special plates,” she said.
