It has been confirmed that the recently launched ‘RR’ plate number series has replaced the ‘RM’ number plate as the most successful and profitable licensed registrar from JPJ Perlis.The ‘RR’ is a number plate with the RR code with its fashionable and glitzy connotations which make it look good on luxury cars and superbikes. The ‘RR’ number plate was reported to have fetched the State’s Road Transport Department a whooping sum of RM7.2 million while the ‘RM’ number plate netted a lower sum of RM7.1 million.
Mohd Tarmizi Ghazali, the spokesman of JPJ Perlis, released the information to media outlets a few days ago.He revealed that the State’s Department received as many as 7,960 bids for the registration numbers.
