Would you like to “SMS” your car?
Since introducing the series of number plates some time back, “SMS” is now the latest special plates in Malaysia. Motorists can now purchase the new numbers in the list that runs from SMS 1 to SMS 9999.
“SMS” joins the list of unique vehicle number plates such as “RIMAU”, “PERFECT”, “NAAM”, “VIP”, and “GT” from 2016 as well as the “PATRIOT” plate from 2015. According to reports, the “SMS” plates is to celebrate the Sultan of Kedah’s 2-term reign as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. It was also to honour Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah via his initials of the number plate.
Back in May, Kwong Wah reported that the SMS 30 plate was bidded by Datuk Sri Chiau of Chin Hin Group Berhad for a whopping RM55,000. The proceeds were then paid to the Yayasan Sultanah Bahiyah (YSB) foundation in support of their charity cause.
