“Online auctions are particularly appealing to a large segment of the community as they offer fans the liberty of selecting their fancied plates in a hassle-free environment.” Said the RTA.
The RTA’s call centre has been boosted by a dedicated team of agents ready to assist the public if they have inquires relating to the upcoming online auction.

Will there be a new record for the “Most Expensive Number Plate Ever Sold”? Probably not, but you can expect some big money being spent on special plates.
