A new rule for motorists was announced in Dubai on Thursday by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
All personal vehicles will now have to upgrade to the new number plate design by January 1, 2020.
Whereas, vehicles owned by private and public sectors can change their license plates starting July 2019.
In fact, from January 1, 2019, RTA will start issuing the new redesigned vehicle number plates at the time of registration renewal.
The changing of these license plates entail a one-time cost
Wondering how much it is?
RTA shared the cost listing on its website…
And it can range from AED35 for the short plate to AED50 for the long plate
As of January 1, 2020 it is mandatory for all personal vehicles to get the new designed license plates. As for vehicles owned by private and public sectors, their license plates can be changed starting July 2019. pic.twitter.com/Rd0i1922vS
