KOTA KINABALU: The Road Transport Department (JPJ) here is targeting over RM1.5 million from the bid of the SYD registration series which will be implemented through the JPJeBid, the online vehicle number plate bidding system.

Its director Sadim Abdul said that this is the first time the e-bidding system is being expanded to Sabah and will be open for five days from Aug 15-19.

He said the bidding is open to Malaysian citizens and permanent residents aged 18 and above and registered companies.

“The minimum bid for the category with the most valuable numbers is RM20,000, followed by RM3,000 for attractive numbers, RM800 for popular numbers and RM300 for normal numbers.

“Payments can only be made via local credit or debit cards,” he said at a press conference on Online Vehicle Number Plate Bidding System at Sabah JPJ here, Wednesday.

Sadim said the bidders can bid for as many numbers as they want as long as they pay a service fee of RM10 for each bid.

However, he said each individual is only allowed to win a maximum of three registration numbers, while companies a maximum of five registration numbers.

The public and companies that do not have their records in the MySikap system and are interested in bidding need to register at a JPJ branch to get an ID code to enable them to do so, he added.

Also present were Malaysian JPJ Vehicle Licensing Division Director, Datuk Mohd Rusdi Mohd Darus, Sabah JPJ Deputy Director Datuk Abdul Rahman Mohd Zakaria and other senior officials.

Meanwhile, Mohd Rusdi said so far more than RM11.6 million had been collected since the system was introduced and Putrajaya had recorded the highest collection of RM3.2 million followed by the Federal Territory of RM1.3 million.

All issues pertaining to the bidding process have also been resolved since then, he said, adding that bid results would be made public at noon the day after bidding ends. 

He said many of the problems faced previously involved bidders who had forgotten their password or misspelt email details, and this caused bidders to fail to register their accounts.
