New Car Plates: What About Them And Where To Get Them?

January 13,2018

Gather round fellow Lebanese!

 

Lebanon has changed yet another aspect of our cars. This time, our car’s license plates are getting a makeover with a brand new plate that was included in the new traffic laws that rolled out on April of 2015. They say this new plate is impossible to be forged, so wave goodbye to those fake plates parading the roads.

What’s new with the License Plate?

 

The new plate comes with loads of advantages that supposedly make it way better than the previous one. This new plate CANNOT be forged. It has its own barcode and a 3D-drilled cedar. Info about car and driver is registered. The plate cannot be removed manually, except if it falls off in the case of an accident.

 

 

How do you change to the new one?

 

It’s quite simple. When you have to pay the mechanic for your car, you have to get the plate changed. Here are the requirements to get them changed:

  • Driver’s License
  • A photocopy of your ID
  • The latest Mechanic’s Receipt
  • 31,000 L.L in paperwork
  • 15,000 L.L to change the plates (both front and rear cost a total of 15,000 L.L.)

 

The total cost used to be 68,000 but, thankfully, they lowered it to 46,000 as per this OTV report. It’s not that much of a decrease, but at least it’s something!

 

When should you change the plate?

 

Whenever you pass by the mechanic to pay, you can change it then. Though, you have to get your license plate changed before the first 6 months of 2019 are up. If you think it looks cool, you can change it now! Check out how below.


Where can you install the new ones?

 

If you, like us, would like to install that new plate asap, there are two ways to do it.


One is to go to the mou3eyane to do some paperwork, then head to one of the designated centers below to change your plates.

Another way that is much more practical and easy is to do it at one of the Liban Post production centers listed below. All you have to do is show up with the required papers (License / ID / Mechanique receipt) and leave shortly after with your new plates. That will cost you 55,000 L.L.
