Following today’s announcement of the ‘Malaysia’ special number plate series, which will be open for tender next month, and the upcoming individual state plate series (Selangor, Kedah, Penang), transport minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook said that his ministry is looking at introducing personalised plates in Malaysia.

Elsewhere, personalised plates can be anything, but Loke gave examples of actual names such as “Anthony or John or Ali or Mahathir or Najib.” Whoever has the money, he can do a personalised number, Loke said, explaining that this could be another way of generating revenue for the government, as per the “once in a lifetime” Malaysia plates and its state equivalents.

“Personalised numbers exist in other countries. We are studying the possibilities of introducing personalised plates, and if possible, we will introduce them in the near future,” he told the media at the transport ministry headquarters in Putrajaya today.

Rumours of JPJ introducing personalised plates have been there for sometime now, and we first heard about it in 2012. What do you think of introduction of personalised plates in Malaysia? Looking forward to get one?
