New Bahraini licence plate to be issued within four months

New look number plates will cost BD7 to fit, easy to read design already chosen.

Bahrain will introduce new number plates for all vehicles in three to four months, a leading traffic official has said.

A design has already been chosen for the plates which will make them easier to read at distance, Lieutenant Colonel Sheikh Abdulrahman bin Sabah Al Khalifa, traffic director-general, told the Gulf Daily News.

The plates will also be theft resistant and in-line with international standards.

"The theft resistant number plate is made to prevent anyone from taking it off the vehicle quickly and reusing it on another vehicle.

“The new plates, once installed, make it difficult to be stolen, dismantled or reused, as special screw caps would be used to fix them," he said.

It will cost BR7 to upgrade to the new licence plate.

The exact date of when the new plates will be introduced has not yet been released, but Sheikh Abdulrahman told the paper it was likely to be within three to four months.

A manufacturing tender has already been awarded, he added.
