RTA to Host Sale of Special Dubai Number Plates
The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai is set to offer another single-digit number plate (Q 2) in a public auction, following the huge success of the recent auction debut of a single digit plate (D 5).

About 91 distinctive vehicle plates will be offered including 2, 3, 4 and 5-digit plates. Registration of interested individuals will start on Saturday, 10 December 2016 and continue for a week.
“The 92nd Auction was hugely popular as it attracted about 500 bidders; reflecting a remarkable increase over the previous attendance figures. It has provided a considerable boost to our third strategic goal (People Happiness), and prompted us to offer another chance to the public to engage in a positive competition by offering a new single-digit plate (Q 5) over & above an array of dazzling two, three, four and five-digit plates bearing various codes,” said Ahmed Bahrozyan, CEO of RTA Licensing Agency.
