The Government Has Revealed New Digital Number Plates For Vehicles Set To Replace Old ones

The government has revealed new digital number plates for vehicles that are set to replace the old ones.

Interior CS Fred Matiang’i on Tuesday commissioned the new generation number plates.

“Commissioning of the new generation number plates marks a historic moment in securitizing vehicle registration by eliminating loopholes exploited by financial fraudsters and unscrupulous motor vehicle importers. Issuance of new plates will begin with newly registered vehicles from the KDK series and replacement of existing ones to start from 1st October 2022.

The plates are linked to the vehicle chassis number with several inbuilt security features that are easily identifiable to law enforcement and comply with international standards.” His tweet read.

The plates have received two notable features: first, they now have security features, which allow law enforcement agencies to track vehicles. The feature is basically a microchip, which can be read by security agencies remotely. Secondly, the plates have aesthetically pleasing fonts and design.

Also, the plates now have a QR code, the Kenyan flag, and NTSA serial number.

Motorists are therefore required to part with Ksh 3000 for the new number plates.

According to reports, the vehicles have a limit of 18 months to switch their current plates to new ones.
