KL car number plates to bear W1A

PUTRAJAYA: The new vehicle registration plates for Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur will start with “W1A”.

Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, who announced this yesterday, said the new series would start once the “WYY” series ends.

“Presently, it is “WYK6xxx” and there are 13 more series before we reach the “WYY” .

“We expect the last registration plate of WYY9999' would be taken up by July,” he said after a briefing by the ministry's senior officials here yesterday.

Also present were Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Aziz Kaprawi and Road Transport Department director-general Datuk Ismail Ahmad.

Hishammuddin said the “W1A” series would end with “W9999A”.

“The following series will be “W1B” to W9999B” and to be followed by “W1C” to “W9999C” with the last series being “W1Y” to “W9999Y”.

“Once this series taken up, the following series will be “WA1A” to “WA9999A”. It ends with “WY1Y” to “WY9999Y” and followed by “WAA1A” to “WAA9999A”.

“The new series will end with “WYY1Y-WYY9999Y”, he said.

On the Automated Enforcement System, Hishammuddin, who is also Defence Minister, said the matter was brought up in the briefing but he was not ready to comment further.

“I just came in and have not yet been brought up to speed on everything.

“There are other issues that need to be resolved with some requi- ring immediate focus, Cabinet decisions and discussions with third parties.”
