Emojis have been one of the most-preferred ways to describe feelings on various social media and messaging platforms. Now though, these emojis will be used by drivers to describe their personality by displaying them on registration number plates.
The Australian state of Queensland will now allow drivers to buy license plates with personalised emojis. Registration numbers are given to each car in order to help identify the car and its owner easily.
For ages now, thousands of new vehicle buyers have been shelling out large amounts of money to get unique registration numbers. The sum being paid for such number plates range from a few thousands and goes up to lakhs and in some cases, crores. In April 2018, a registration number 'F1' became the most expensive one in the world after it was put on sale for Rs 132 crore.
Custom registration number plates till now just meant, having a unique and rare combination of letters and numbers. Now though, the government of Queensland has taken custom and unique registration plates to the next level.
The personalised number plates can be purchased from Personalised Plates Queensland (PPQ), an organisation that works with the Department of Transport and Main Roads in Queensland. PPQ has for a long time been dealing with custom number plates, but it is now for the first time launching license plates with emojis.
Drivers are allowed to have only one emoji on the license plate and the emoji will not be counted as part of the actual registration number. It then, is just a decorative symbol placed on the license plate.
PPQ is currently offering only five emojis for customers to choose from — laugh out loud, winking face, sunglasses face, heart eyes and a standard smiling face. These are the most-used smileys in the world and hence has been offered. It isn't clear yet if more emojis would be added to the list at a later stage.
Thoughts On Australian Registration Number Plates With Emojis
Countries across the world have different takes on unique number plates. Some allow a greater deal of freedom while in countries like India, one can only choose the last six digits of the registration number. With the emojis, Australia now takes the top spot in the registration number plate freedom rankings.
