The first thing to know for people who do not have any inkling about such number plates is to understand what they are.
Such a plate is just another way for individuals to draw attention to their vehicle, making it unique from the millions of other vehicles traversing the roads.
For example, suppose your fancy number for bike ends with ‘9999’ or ‘0001’. While driving around on that bike, you would certainly attract attention from passers-by and other bike riders.
That is because your bike’s number is not as random as theirs, but it is a specialised one. Other popular numbers for your car or bike can include 1111, 4444, 786, and others.
Instead of simply giving such numbers away to random vehicle owners, the Transport Department monetises them. Selling such numbers to the highest bidder enables this government body to raise funds to utilise elsewhere.
A motorhead with a passion for driving loves to spend on his car or bike to extract the optimal performance from it.
Similarly, these individuals make it a point to set their vehicle apart from others, often through body mods, customisations, paint jobs and more. A specialised plate is just another way to differentiate between their car/bike from the countless others on the road.
