Andhra Pradesh, is a state with rich cultural heritage and food. The state has been split into two parts namely Telangana and Andhra Pradesh in 2014, and the government of AP is trying to improve the facilities and benefits for the people in the state. Although the laws and rules in the state with regards to major sectors have been altered, the Transport Department of Andhra Pradesh has not undergone any major changes with regard to rules and regulations for registering, transfer, change of ownership, etc. for motor vehicles.
Hyderabad will be a shared capital for Telangana and Andhra Pradesh until 2024. However, Amaravati is the new capital of Andhra Pradesh alone, and the state government is working towards bringing in more investors in every sector, especially in the automobile sector, to improve the city as well as the economic growth. Hence, the two-wheeler manufacturers have ample amount of opportunity to expand their business here. In the past 4 years, the city has seen a steady growth of motor vehicles and improved traffic. Since the number of two-wheelers and cars have increased in the state, the Transport Department of AP has made the vehicle registration process easy with online facility.
It is undeniable that motorcycle or two-wheeler is the first choice for any individual who wants to buy it for daily commute. It is easier to travel from one place to another with two-wheelers, within the city or outside. For many bike enthusiasts, it is not just a vehicle but an asset. Therefore, we do not hesitate to spend a little extra on the registration number to make it extra special and to have a unique identity for the vehicle. So, if you want to get a special registration number in AP, the cost for each series of number is different.
