In your vehicle registration number, the initial two letters represent the state in India in which the vehicle is registered. For instance, KA for Karnataka, TN for Tamil Nadu, AP for Andhra Pradesh and so on. The two numbers after the state code is the code assigned to a particular Regional Transport Office (RTO) that operates under the state government (For example: Nagercoil - 74, Madurai - 58, and Krishnagiri – 24). The next four numbers collectively represent the registration number of your motorcycle. The registration number can be in the range of 0001 to 9999. Once all the numbers in the range are assigned, an alphabet is attached to the number and the same range continues.

How To Apply For A Fancy Two Wheeler Number
Enquire about the latest registered number on a given day and choose a number from the next 1000 numbers in the series. The booking for the number must be done before the next series begins. When the number that comes before your chosen number is registered, you will receive a notice from the RTO to visit the RTO and submit all the necessary documents to claim their special two-wheeler number. The vehicle must also be shown to the RTO at the time of claim. Failing to make the claim within 30 days will lead to cancellation of your application.
After making payment for the special number, the number will be allotted in the name of the applicant. If there are more than one person applying for the same number, the number will be assigned to the person who has paid more in road taxes.
