Motorists in Dubai will soon be able to purchase license plates featuring images of the Burj Khalifa and other landmarks.
The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will launch the number plates, which will include a series of pictures including landmarks as well as cultural and historical moments, in the first quarter of 2013.
“The RTA has opted to embark on this step as a means of revamping number plates in response to the interests and aspirations of customers, in a step considered the first of its kind in the region,” Ahmed Bahrozian, CEO of RTA Licensing Agency, said in a statement.
Drivers will be required to pay for the new plates, which will be valid for five years, after which they will have to renew the contract. Although the list of images has yet to be finalised, images are expected to include the Burj Al Arab and Emirates Towers.
