BEIRUT: All vehicle owners across Lebanon will be required to change their vehicle registration plates before December 21, 2018, officials told Annahar.

Each vehicle owner will incur a total cost of L.L. 45,000, according to Huda Salloum, head of the Traffic and Vehicle Management Authority. This includes the cost of the front and back plates (L.L. 15,000 each) in addition to a L.L.15,000 fee.

L.L.30,000 are to be paid at vehicle inspection centers while L.L. 15,000 are to be paid at one of the 18 centers designated by the Traffic Management Center to acquire the new registration plates.

The new plates will feature a serial number, a laser-drilled barcode, and a 3D-drilled cedar tree, making it impossible to replicate, Salloum explained.

Salloum added that the security features of the new plates will curb the number of duplicate red registration plates currently being used by unlicensed taxis.
