Personalized Vehicle Registration Marks (PVRMs) Scheme

Applications accepted in January, May and September each year. 



To provide more choices of vehicle registration marks to vehicle owners, the Government introduced a Personalized Vehicle Registration Marks (PVRMs) Scheme. Under the Scheme, a vehicle owner can choose his/her preferred vehicle registration mark, apply to the Transport Department (TD) and use it upon approval following a bidding exercise.

The applications for and allocation of personalized vehicle registration mark are subject to the Road Traffic (Registration and Licensing of Vehicles) Regulations, Cap. 374 sub. leg. E. This web page aims to introduce what a personalized vehicle registration mark is, the business process from submission of application to auction of personalized vehicle registration mark and the points to note for applicants. In the case of inconsistency, the Regulations shall prevail.
Before submitting applications, applicants should read the guidance notes carefully, and may also make reference to the auctioned marks under “Auction Result of PVRMs” below for the combinations and display arrangements of PVRMs.

Application Period for the 32nd Invitation Exercise:  Closed on 31 January 2017

(Each applicant can only submit one application.)

(Note: The processing of applications for personalized vehicle registration marks involves several stages and is taken by batches.  As a general reference, it would normally take up to eight or more months for an application to complete the process and have the approved mark from the deadline for applications of each exercise to be put up for auction.  The processing time would be even longer if the applied mark requires further examination during the vetting stage.)
