CVR Announces New Number Plate Policy

The government has issued a directive saying that when there is a change of vehicle ownership, the new owner is no longer required to get new number plates but will continue using the old ones. This has been necessitated by a shortage of number plates. Number plates will only be changed in four specific cases listed below in an email  advising of the changes.
