There seems to be a new number plate series coming about just about every week now – another one has inevitably appeared, and this one is called YY. As is the case with special number plates, the YY plate series will be available for purchase through a bidding process.

The series – numbered from YY 1 to YY 9999 – opened for bidding on March 15 and will end on April 6, with successful bids being announced on April 30. Unlike the UU plate, which is available on an open basis with no minimum tender price, the YY plates do have etablished baseline prices. Minimum bid pricing for ordinary numbers (example, 1389, 3569) is RM300, while that for special ordinary (er, yes, that is the term) numbers such as 2268 and 9962 is RM1,000.

Bidding prices start at RM2,000 for gold quadruple numbers (2228, 3336, 6999), while special quadruple numbers (2266, 9898) go for RM3,000 on. Triple digit numbers start from RM3,000, while that for special triple numbers (335, 565, 898) is RM6,000.

The YY series follows on the UU series plate that was announced last week. Other special number plate series that have come about include GTR, GG, SAM, K1M, T1M, A1M, US, SMS, NBOS, NAAM, VIP, G, GT, U, Y, PERFECT and PATRIOT. What next, then?
