The Vanity Number Plates are about to enter Pakistan. If you are wondering what it means, let me clarify in simple words. The Vanity Number Plates are special and personalized ones designed by yourself for your vehicles that suit your mood and personality.
According to reports, Government of Punjab has started a process of selecting companies in preparing these unique number plates in the province which is expected to be completed in October this year.
An online portal will be set up for ordering these number plates. Citizens will also be able to design the plates online and check the expected costs of their personalized creations. They can order it once they’re satisfied with the design and price of the number plates.
These number plates will be issued against the customer’s CNIC rather than the car documents, as is currently being done. People will be able to transfer the plates to another car without paying any additional charges.

These vanity number plates will also be introduced for bikes, with an estimated price of Rs. 5,000 per pair.
