Dubai to introduce new number plate design

Posted on Aug 21, 2014 by

Vehicles registered in Dubai will soon have number plates with new designs as the Roads and Transport Authority () is working on plans to replace the existing designs and colours, sources confirm. A senior official told Gulf News that the authority is currently studying various designs and considering a new colour coding system for vehicle number plates of all categories but nothing has been finalised yet.

However, he revealed that all new number plates will bear the new Dubai logo, without divulging what the new logo will be. He added that a specialised team is currently in the final stage of completing the study and the details of the new plan will be made public in the next few weeks.

Number plates in Dubai haven’t changed for decades. Private vehicles registered in the emirate have white plates with numbers in black, while commercial vehicles have green plates with white numbers. Recently, RTA launched number plates for classic cars, which are maroon in colour.

Last year, the authorities also launched personalised number plates with images of Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa and other Dubai landmarks. Currently, RTA number plates cost Dh50 and it is not yet clear whether the new number plates will cost the same or more.
