Want to buy a new car? You can actually go online and buy your own number plate from as low as RM310.
The Malaysian Land Transport Department (JPJ) has launched an online license plate number purchase service where people can go online and purchase their preferred license plate number. After completing the payment, you can hand over the relevant documents to your car buying agent and let them handle the subsequent procedures.
There are two types of fees for purchasing a license plate number online, the first is the license plate number fee which is a minimum of RM300 and the second is the service fee which is only RM10. Both fees add up to a minimum of RM310 and you can choose to pay for the license plate number through your bank card or Internet Banking.
