In addition to being a mode of transport, your choice of vehicle can also reflect your personality. Thus, many vehicle buyers, of late, have started to customise their vehicles and get special registration numbers for their two-wheelers, even if it comes at an additional price.
Special registration numbers, also called VIP registration numbers or fancy numbers can make a vehicle look truly unique and distinct. Over the past few years, the demand for special registration numbers for vehicles has risen across the country. In the state of Gujarat, an e-auction service is conducted to allot VIP registration numbers to interested vehicle owners. In order to participate in the e-auction process, vehicle owners are mandatorily required to first register their vehicle.
The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 makes it mandatory for every vehicle owner to register their vehicle. The Act states that no individual should drive or ride a vehicle in a public place unless the vehicle has been registered and has a valid certificate of registration. The vehicle is also required to have a registration mark.
A number plate consists of the vehicle’s official registration number. The first part of the number plate indicates the union territory or the state in which the vehicle was registered. This is usually denoted by 2 letters. For example, the number plate of vehicles that have been registered in Gujarat will begin with a “GJ”. The next two digits indicate the sequential number of a district. The third component of a number plate is the unique registration number that helps in identifying the vehicle. This is the number that vehicle owners can purchase for a price. The fourth part of a number plate contains a logo with a hologram and the words “IND” embossed under it. These alphabets and digits together form a registration number that is unique to your two-wheeler.
To get a VIP number or fancy number for a two-wheeler in Gujarat, vehicle buyers/owners will need to do as follows:

Similar to how it is necessary to get your vehicle registered before using it, it is also necessary to purchase a two wheeler insurance policy for your vehicle. The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 has made it mandatory for every two-wheeler owner to purchase at least a third-party insurance policy for their vehicle. That being said, it is advisable to purchase a comprehensive motor insurance policy if you wish to receive a more enhanced coverage. With a two wheeler insurance policy, you can ensure that you and your vehicle are protected from the financial repercussions of an accident or a man-made/natural calamity. Thus, make sure to do your due research, compare policies, and purchase a bike insurance policy that meets your coverage needs as soon as you buy a vehicle.
