It will be possible to legally buy a “nice” number in Russia from 2022

From January 1, 2022, Russia will legally start selling “beautiful” numbers from auctions. The corresponding draft resolution was developed by the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation and provides for the introduction of a number of amendments both to the law “On state registration of vehicles” and to the Budget Code. The innovations are expected to be reviewed by the government shortly.

According to this document, all “beautiful” numbers will be taken out of regular circulation and will be sold exclusively within the framework of open auctions. In other words, it will be impossible to accidentally get a state registration mark with a successful combination of numbers and letters.

All “nice” numbers will be divided into 13 tariff options, while the most expensive category will have registration plates with the same numbers and letters (for example, А111АА or B777BB). The base rate for such plates will be 600,000 rubles.

Slightly cheaper (from 450,000 rubles) are state registration marks with the same letters and numbers 100, 200, 300 and so on (for example, A200AA). At the same time, for 5,000 rubles, the motorist will simply be given the opportunity to independently choose any number without repeating symbols and successful combinations.

There are own tariffs for motonomers. For example, a registration plate with the same letters and numbers like 0001, 0002, 0003, etc. (for example, 0003MM) will cost the biker 200,000 rubles.

At the same time, the regions will be given the opportunity to increase or decrease the base rates of these tariffs by 10 times. Thus, in some regions, for the most “thieves” license plates they can ask for an impressive 6 million rubles, and for motor signs – 2 million rubles.

The duration of tenders for “beautiful” numbers will be one month, and a citizen will be able to participate in no more than five tenders at a time. Such restrictions were introduced to combat speculation, while all income from the sale of license plates will be distributed in equal proportions between the federal and regional budgets.

Interestingly, if a car with a beautiful number is resold, the new owner will have to pay an additional auction price for this registration plate. Otherwise, the car will be assigned the usual state sign, and “beautiful” – returned to the traffic police. The only exceptions will be cases of inheritance of a vehicle.
