System Assigned Vehicle Number

If you are buying a new car, and you find bidding for a number too much of a hassle, you can leave it to the computer to generate a number for you. Immediately after your motor vehicle dealer enters your vehicle particulars into the system, the system will randomly generate a number once and assign it to your vehicle.

If you do not like the registration number assigned by the computer system, you can still bid for a registration number of your choice. You will need to pay a fee of $300 (before GST) for each replacement of the vehicle registration number.
