PHNOM PENH (The Phnom Penh Post/Asia News Network): The Ministry of Public Works and Transport will hold an exhibition of special and personalised number plates early next year.

The exhibition is designed to give the public the opportunity to learn more about licence plates, and take part in auctions for them. The event will also feature displays by many of the Kingdom’s most popular automotive brands.

Koy Sodany – ministry secretary of state and chairwoman of the inter-ministerial commission to manage sales for special and personalised number plates – is chairing a working group tasked with organising the exhibition.

“We want to encourage as many banking and financial institutions, insurance companies and car dealers to participate in the event as possible,” she said.

“We also want to link vehicle registration to special plates, to allow banking and financial to cooperate in the auction process,” she added.

Sodany called on banking and financial institutions to work with the ministry by arranging easy payment options.

In 2021, the public works ministry registered 5,291 personalised number plates, with total revenue of over US$9 million. Almost 30,000 special plates at the capital-provincial level were registered, earning over $8 million. The plates first went on sale in 2019.

A special plate has Phnom Penh or the name of the province issued in Khmer at the top and in Latin below, The number begins with one class digit, dependent on the type of vehicle, followed by one or two Latin letters and then four digits that can be specified.

A personalised plate has the word “Cambodia” at the top, with one to eight letters and numbers on the next line. It can contain virtually any arrangements of letters and numbers, including people’s names if they so desire.
