6 Responses to “WWW Number Plates Open For Booking”

  1. Hottest car numbers yet

    THE licence plate number WWW 1 will likely set a record as the most expensive vehicle registration number in Malaysia. The price could hit RM500,000 when bidding starts on April 30, according to Kosmo.

    The tabloid quoted Federal Territory Road Transport Department director Nadzri Osman as saying that it was possible to reach that figure as they had already received everal offers that exceeded RM400,000.

    Currently, the most expensive registration number is MCA 1 sold for RM300,000 in 2010.

    “Those who wish to secure registration numbers of between WWW 1 and WWW 9999 should submit tenders, as they will be selling like hot cakes,” Nadzri said.

    The department also projected that “hot numbers” WWW 3, WWW 8, WWW 9, WWW 11, WWW 33 and WWW 88 could be sold for more than RM10,000 each.

    > Sexy young artiste Syatilla Melvin confessed to starring in a “hot” 1.47-minute video clip, reported Mingguan Malaysia.

    The 21-year-old said friends shot the video for a coursework that involved video recording.

    “Why should I deny its existence when I am the person in the video?” she said, adding she did “not want to live in denial”.

    Syatilla, who is fondly known as Tilla, said she believed in honesty.

    “I am not upset, but rather disappointed over the negative comments from people who have watched the clip,” she said.

    In the video, Syatilla dances provocatively to Doris Day’s 1960s hit Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps.

  2. Personalised number plates soon

    Owners of all types of vehicles, except taxis, will be allowed to bid for personalised registration numbers (NPP) from as early as next year.

    Road Transport Department (JPJ) director-general Datuk Solah Mat Hassan said the move was to allow them to own unique licence plates and for the authorities to earn additional revenue.

    He said owners of motorcycles as well as commercial vehicles such as lorries and buses would be allowed to apply for NPPs as long as they were prepared to pay for the privilege.

    “The NPP is one of the new initiatives by the JPJ to members of the public. We will be able to introduce it once our computer system is upgraded and new security features are incorporated,” he said.

    JPJ was given RM282mil to upgrade its system as part of the Government Transformation Programme.

    The move will, among others, allow Malaysians to renew their licence and road tax online.

    Solah said the bidding exercise would be divided into two categories exclusive and non-exclusive.

    “A non-exclusive NPP can belong to more than one individual while an exclusive one will only belong to one individual.”

    He added that the JPJ had yet to decide the number of characters that would be allowed for both exclusive and non-exclusive NPPs.

    The non-exclusive NPPs, he said, would be cheaper and offered via a tender exercise.

    “As for exclusive NPPs, the JPJ will determine how much it would cost the bidder.

    “The bidder will then have the right for the NPP from numbers 1 to 9999,” he said, adding that the JPJ had yet to finalise the cost for exclusive or non-exclusive NPPs.

    The JPJ had previously proposed allowing Malaysians to have NPPs based on their names or personal details as in some developed countries.

    Big corporations and private businesses would also be allowed to have such unique numbers which they could use for their fleet of vehicles.

    Solah said existing vehicle owners would also be able to apply for the NPPs.

    “The individual will have to go through an interchange process where the existing registration number will be transferred to the new vehicle if he intends to use the NPP for his existing vehicle,” he said.


  3. RM500,000 bid for WWW?

    The bidding for the much-hyped “WWW” vehicle registration numbers only starts on April 30 but the queue numbers are almost sold out.

    Kuala Lumpur Road Transport Department director Mohd Nadzri Osman said there were not many queue numbers left especially for the first day of the 14-day bidding period.

    “They’re going real fast like hot cakes.

    “We decided to sell the queue numbers early to avoid a rush and congestion at the counters,” he said.

    The queue numbers are needed for the public to submit their bid for a registration number and are sold at RM10 per number.

    The bidding can only be done at the Kuala Lumpur JPJ offices in Wangsa Maju, Bandar Sri Permaisuri and Maju Junction.

    Mohd Nadzri said one queue number was valid for one bid only and predicted that the “WWW” registration number could attract a bid as high as RM500,000.

    “We have already received several offers that exceed RM400,000,” he said but declined to reveal the numbers involved.

    The Transport Ministry is expecting the “WWW” registration numbers to break the record as the most expensive.

    Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said one of the reasons people were so interested in having the registration numbers was because it was the acronym for the Internet or World Wide Web.

    “Based on the interest shown, we believe the registration numbers would not just be a hot item, but set a record for the highest booking price.

    “The hot numbers would be the single digits such as WWW 1, WWW 3, WWW 8 as well as WWW 11, WWW 33 and WWW 88,” he said.

    The highest bid for a vehicle registration number in the country so far was MCA1, bought for RM300,100 in 2010, surpassing a previous record of RM242,000 for the Terengganu-issued TAY1.


  4. Crowds flock to JPJ branches to bid for ‘WWW’

    Hundreds of people turned up at three Road Transport Department (JPJ) branches here to bid for “WWW” vehicle registration numbers when the series opened for tender.

    At the Wangsa Maju branch, many started to queue up at the entrance even before it opened at 7.45am.

    An official said this was unprecedented because most people would normally come at around 10am.

    He said numbers that usually came under the running list not categorised as premium, attractive or popular numbers had also received bids.

    The minimum bid for “premium” numbers (from 1 to 10) and “attractive numbers” are RM10,000 and RM2,000 respectively.

    Popular and running numbers require a minimum bid of RM300.

    Wan Nurhaslinda Junaini, 31, who bid for a “WWW” number denoting her birthday, said she wanted it although this was not among the most popular combinations.

    “I really wanted the number and because the WWW series (which is the acronym for the World Wide Web) only comes once. I felt the need to bid for it,” said Nurhaslinda, who preferred to keep the amount she tendered secret.

    Others who bid for “WWW” number combinations said they were willing to pay hundreds to thousands.

    Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the series attracted a lot of interest, adding that he received many enquiries at the ministry itself.

    He expects the record set by the vehicle registration number MCA1 which was sold for RM300,100 two years ago to be broken.

    The highest bid before that was for the Terengganu-issued TAY1, which sold for RM242,000.

    Bidding for the WWW series is open until noon on May 14. Results will be announced on May 24.


  5. Mad last-minute rush to bid for WWW plates

    Some pleaded, others cajoled the Road Transport Department (JPJ) employees in a bid to have their very last-minute applications for the “WWW” registration numbers accepted.

    Despite having two weeks to submit their bids, many still waited until the last day and rushed to JPJ branches yesterday to submit their bids.

    Some pleaded with JPJ officers to accept their bids after the bidding closed at noon yesterday.

    At the Wangsa Maju branch, many had started to queue up at the entrance even before it opened at 7.45am.

    “I took the day off from work to be here,” said marketing executive Tan Sie Yie, 40, who placed bids for three numbers.

    Tan said she was bidding for the “WWW” prefix as she believed it would bring prosperity and good luck.

    She said one of her bids was for RM3,000 but declined to reveal the other two.

    Kuala Lumpur JPJ director Mohd Nadzri Osman said they had prepared for the final rush by allowing bidders for “WWW” to go straight to the three dedicated counters without having to take numbers.

    By 10am, the three counters had been increased to five.

    Businessman Khairul Azuad, 34, said he decided to bid as it was a “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity.

    “It is a very attractive number so I am just going to try my luck,” he said, adding that he had been at the office by 8am as he had anticipated the rush.

    When asked why he waited until the last day, he said: “I guess I’m a typical Malaysian.”

    Just two minutes before the deadline, a man was seen rushing to the counter with 10 envelopes.

    JPJ officers scrambled to register the bids, managing to accept four of the 10 bids before noon.

    Mohd Nadzri had earlier predicted that the “WWW” series could attract a bid as high as RM500,000.

    Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha had said that “WWW” received the highest number of bids ever recorded by the JPJ, far surpassing the previous record for “WVW” at 4,750 bids.

    The “WWW” series is popular because the surname Wong or Wang rhymes with “prosperity” and “emperor” in Chinese.

    The results will be announced on May 24. fr:thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2012/5/15/nation/11288011&sec=nation

  6. Record 18,243 bids for ‘WWW’ plates

    There were a record 18,243 bids for the ‘WWW’ registration number when bidding closed at noon Monday.

    The bids were nearly four times more than the previous record of 4,750 bids for the ‘WVW’ numbers.

    “This is beyond our expectation. Hence, it will take time for the Road Transport Department (JPJ) to process and analyse the bids received,” said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

    “Our officers are working hard to ensure that not a single bid is missed. We hope the public will understand this,” he told reporters after launching the Transport Ministry’s Strategic Plan Book 2011-2015 here. The result of the bidding is expected to be announced next Thursday.

    Of the bids, 12,805 were received by JPJ in Wangsa Maju, Bandar Seri Permaisuri (2,362), Maju Junction (926) and by post (2,150).

    The bidding, which was opened on April 30, was for four registration number categories premium, attractive, popular and running.
