After purchasing a two-wheeler, many vehicle owners choose to personalise their vehicles by getting unique VIP registration numbers/fancy numbers/choice numbers. While some choose VIP registration numbers that make a statement (example: 8055, which reads “BOSS”), others choose numbers that either have a special connection to them or numbers that they believe to be auspicious. Given the rising demand for VIP registration numbers across the country, RTOs usually charge a fixed price for these numbers. Individuals who wish to book a VIP registration number for their vehicle will usually have to partake in an online auction process.
All vehicles in India are required to have a number plate with a standard format. The first two alphabets of a number plate are indicative of the union territory or state in which the vehicle has been registered by the vehicle owner. The next two numbers represent the sequential number of the district in which the vehicle is registered. The next part of the number plate is the unique registration number. Lastly, the number plate also contains a hologram with a “Chakra” symbol and the letters “IND” under the logo.

To book or reserve a fancy number, interested individuals will need to participate in an online auction process. This auction is only open to individuals who have registered their name during the bid registration period. Individuals will be allotted a particular user ID and password during the bid registration period and the same user credentials will have to be used by the bidder until the completion of the entire bidding process. To book/reserve a fancy number, you will need to do as follows:
The registration number, also called the registration mark, of a vehicle is necessary to identify which state and district the vehicle is registered in. Also, in case of a crime, theft, or accident, the registration number will play a vital role in helping the concerned authorities narrow down/identify the vehicle. Also, as per the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, all motor vehicles are required to have registration numbers with number plates that match the specified format.
In addition to booking a fancy registration number and registering your vehicle, make sure that you are fully compliant with the rules of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 by purchasing a two wheeler insurance policy for your two-wheeler. While the Act only requires you to purchase a third-party liability insurance cover, it is smart to purchase a more enhanced insurance cover with add-ons for a higher level of coverage.
