Many people consider their vehicles to be an extension of themselves. It is no wonder then that a number of vehicle owners choose to get personalised and unique number plates for their vehicles. While some get VIP registration numbers for their vehicles purely to make a statement, several other vehicle owners purchase particular registration numbers because the number holds a personal significance or due to the number having proved auspicious in the past.
To get a unique registration number, vehicle owners usually have to pay a certain prescribed fee. The fee to be paid will usually vary based on the state in which one is registering their vehicle and the demand for a particular registration number. Read on to know more about how to get a VIP registration number in the state of Himachal Pradesh.
When you get your vehicle registered under an RTO, a unique registration ID, which comprises of alphabets and digits, will be provided to you. This registration ID is what is embossed on a vehicle’s number plate. The registration ID can be broken down into 4 parts. The first two alphabets refer to the state in which you have registered your two-wheeler. Thus, vehicles registered in Himachal Pradesh will begin with an “HP”.
The next part of the number plate comprises of two digits that indicate the RTO under which the two-wheeler has been registered. The next part of the number plate is usually made up of two alphabets and four digits. This number is unique to each vehicle and can be customised for a price. Many vehicle owners get custom registration numbers, also called VIP numbers, for their vehicles from the RTO. The last part of the number plate is a holographic logo with the letters “IND” etched under it.

It is necessary to have a unique registration number to ride your two-wheeler in public places after purchasing it. The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 makes it compulsory for every vehicle owner to register their vehicle after purchasing it and get a registration number, either a VIP number or a regular registration number, for the vehicle from the concerned RTO.
Registering your vehicle is a must if you want to comply with the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988. Further, getting your vehicle registered can also make it easier to identify your vehicle in the event of a theft. To completely protect your vehicle and yourself from having to incur any unplanned expenses in case of an unfortunate eventuality, it is also necessary to purchase a two wheeler insurance policy for your vehicle. You can purchase either a third-party liability insurance plan or a comprehensive insurance policy for your vehicle based on the level of coverage you require. Make sure to also customise and enhance this coverage by purchasing add-ons that are offered by the insurer.
