Man pays the price of a car for PJF 1

GEORGE TOWN: Times are hard, but some car owners are still willing to pay huge sums for sought-after registration numbers.

One owner paid RM42,000 after successfully bidding for PJF 1 recently, state Road Transport Department (JPJ) director Hassan Yaccob said.

That amount is apparently enough to buy a Perodua Viva.

Other prized numbers were PJF 3 and PJF 2 where bidders paid RM23,200 and RM18,000 respectively.

Hassan said car buyers usually sought single-digit numbers.

“For some, they must win the bid at all cost,” he added.

Hassan said the state JPJ was earning RM4mil annually from the tender of registration numbers.

Penang, although a small state, was ranked fourth behind Federal Territory, Selangor and Johor in terms of such revenue, he said.

He said the highest amount paid for a registration number in Penang was PHM 1 at RM73,000.

Surprisingly, numbers like 8, 88, 888 and 8888, which are deemed lucky by the Chinese as they rhyme with “prosperity” in Cantonese, are not much sought after.

The highest bid for the single digit 8 was RM18,600, followed by RM8,100 for 88 and RM5,000 (for 888).

Hassan said car owners who were interested in the tender have to fill up a form which include the bidding price and 30% in deposit for the desired registration number.

The form will have to be submitted to the department within two weeks after the tender is open to the public.

The state JPJ would spend a week vetting through the bids before announcing the winners.

“The unsuccessful ones will have the 30% deposit refunded,” he said.

Special numbers goldmine for the JPJ

THE Federal Territory Road Trans­port Department is taking the numbers game seriously as it can get as much as RM1.2mil a day from people who want special digits to adorn their car number plates.

Sin Chew Daily quoted Federal Territory Road Transport Depart­ment director Mohd Nadzri Osman as saying that the department earned RM445mil last year from the bidding of the special numbers.

“The earning from the bidding is 30% of the total income of our department,” he said, adding that although the country was facing an economic slowdown, income from such bidding was expected to drop by only 1% or 2%.

“Numbers one to 10 are consi­dered the ‘golden numbers’ which can fetch between RM20,000 and RM100,000 while ‘high price numbers’ such as 11, 22, 33, 44, 88, 99, 777 and 6666 can go as high as RM8,000 to RM10,000,” he said.

    Anyone For tax Car Number Plates?

    KUALA TERENGGANU, Oct 14 (Bernama) — The Terengganu Road Transport Department (JPJ) has opened tenders for the car registration plates TAX 1 to TAX 999 until Nov 3.

    State JPJ director Abdul Rahman Emang Anyie said he expected a good response for the number plates but did not think anyone would offer any sum more than RM200,090, the highest in the country so far, which was paid for the number plate TAN 1.

    Perhaps, there may be many interested parties in the town of Chukai (meaning tax in Malay) in Terengganu!

  3. What’s in a number? Car number TAN 1 was worth RM200,000

    INTERESTING stories have emerged from Terengganu in recent weeks. The divorce rate is high, it is claimed, because of body odour, boring pyjamas and humdrum sex.

    There are some 2,000 Mat Rempit gang members in the state, including 300 secondary school boys, and the gangs have interesting names like Apache, Seven to One and Dracula.

    And in the spirit of 1Malaysia, the state plans to introduce a “1Toilet” policy in a move to liberalise education, where teachers – and even principals – will soon have to share toilets with their students.

    But it was the story about vehicle number plates that caught my attention.

    According to the report, the most expensive number plate in the country is for a vehicle registered in Terengganu but owned by a businessman in Johor Baru. The number TAN 1 went for a princely sum of RM200,090.

    My colleague Hong Boon How, who covers the motoring beat, tells me I can get a brand-new BMW 118i, a Mercedes-Benz A170, four Perodua Myvis or five Proton Sagas for that sum of money.

    Malaysians are fixated with numbers and many people would pay a fortune to get a number of their choice. But is the JPJ getting the best possible returns through this tender process? I don’t think so.

    Under the current system, the minimum price for a Premier Value Number is only RM2,000; an Interesting Number RM800; and a Popular Number RM200. (You can check the website at for a full listing of these numbers.)

    These rates should be raised and the JPJ should go to town with the publicity when people pay a huge sum for a number. I think the agency should take out an advertisement and thank Mr Tan and then challenge Malaysians to break his record.

    And they have to think ahead. For example, the BMW numbers are not that far off when you consider the current series out of Selangor is BKN. In Penang, the PJK series has just taken off so PKR is not far away either, if you get my drift.

    Let’s look at what their British counterpart, the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, is doing.

    A mystery buyer recently paid a staggering £87,853 for the right to fit the 5 O (O, not zero) plate on his car at the agency’s autumn auction of personalised registrations.

    The bid takes the total amount spent on the O-series – 1 O, 2 0, 3 O and 4 O – to a whopping £566,344, with all the money raised going to the Treasury.

    They certainly mean business over there and according to the agency’s marketing manager Damian Lawson, “We have been blown away by the level of interest in an O-registration. The decision to release them to the public has certainly proved worthwhile in terms of the revenue raised for the nation.”

    Lawson went on to say that it is remarkable how Britain’s motorists have taken to personalised numbers.

    “Whole families buy them, not just for the adults, but for their children as well; businesses of all types and sizes use them to promote their brands and products and a growing number of our customers seem to be buying them for their investment value,” he said.

    I believe the reasons why Malaysians select certain numbers will be even more interesting, and what is good for one community may be taboo to another. Which means you can make money from almost every number put up for tender.

    For 2008, the most expensive plates in the Britain were the numbers F1 and S1 sold for £440,000 and £397,500 respectively.

    The £440k tag smashed the British record by over £100,000. The previous record holder was M 1 which sold for £331,000 in 2006.

    I hope the JPJ will start brainstorming soon on this matter. It will not only be good for the nation’s coffers but also for their KPI.

    ? Deputy executive editor Soo Ewe Jin feels responsible credit card holders can be spared the RM50 tax if good revenue can be generated by government agencies through more creative channels.

  6. JPJ: Multiple queue numbers to prevent chaos

    JOHOR BARU: The Road Transport Department (JPJ) requires certain people to take multiple queue numbers to prevent chaos, said state JPJ director Rosli Ramli.

    In most instances, those required to take multiple numbers are those who have been blacklisted, he told The Star at the JPJ headquarters here yesterday.

    “Most of the time these cases need three numbers as they must queue up at the blacklist counter before they get to the investigations counter. Once they are finished at the investigations counter, they would need to take another number to pay their compound fine,” he explained.

    “Eight counters are open daily – two counters for summonses, two blacklist counters, one police case counter, one investigation counter and two prosecution counters.”

    Rosli, who was responding to a report on Jan 21, said that lines at these counters were minimal and most people would not have to wait for more than 10 minutes to complete their transactions.

    He said people needing to check their blacklist records could also do so at the customer service counters without taking a number.

    Doing away with the numbering system would make it more difficult for the public, he said, explaining that the MyID system was to make it easy for people to check their records online.

  10. Car registration plates bearing ‘MCA’ can’t be reserved

    PUTRAJAYA: Car registrations bearing the letters “MCA” are open for public tender and they are not reserved for MCA members only, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

    “Nobody can reserve any number for ‘MCA.’ It’s part of the sequence that RTD issues the registration number,” he said.

    He was commenting on a “directive” from certain quarters that the Malacca registration should be reserved for MCA members only.

    It was reported in a newspaper yesterday that a letter written by the senior private secretary of former Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat, had asked for tenders for the registration beginning from MCA 1 to MCA 9999 to be exempted.

    Speaking to reporters after his ministry’s Hari Raya Aidifiltri open house here yesterday, Kong said the instruction to Road Transport Department (RTD) director-general Datuk Solah Mat Hassan to exempt the numbers MCA 1 to MCA 9999 had been recinded.

    Kong later showed a letter dated Feb 17 on the directive to Solah to the press.

    He said there were other car registrations beginning with the letters DAP and PAS but it did not mean they were reserved for members from the opposition parties.

    In another development, Kong, who is also MCA secretary-general, said the party was set for its annual general meeting in October.

    On the outcome of the Ops Sikap 22 road safety operation held in conjunction with the Hari Raya Aidifitri celebrations which ended on Friday, Kong said although there was a reduction in the number of accidents, the fatality rate was still high.

    Under Ops Sikap 22, 16,817 accidents were reported compared with 17,335 last year.

    The number of road fatalities was 244 compared with 265 last year.
