Dubai: Vehicles registered in Dubai will soon have number plates with new designs as the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is working on plans to replace the existing designs and colours, Gulf News can confirm.
A senior RTA 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.
Classic cars were not allowed to ply on Dubai roads for lack of testing facilities until early 2012; however, with the new facility, many of these vintage beauties which were earlier confined to showrooms and garages are now back on the roads. More info
