Anyway, the numbers here are different to what we are used to, and some could cause confusion, for example :
Our 5 is their 0, our 6 is their 7, our 2 is a backwards 7 and our 4 is a backwards 3 ... not to mention that our 7 is a zig and our 8 is a zag.....
The only ones that match are the 1 and the 9.
We have discovered that you can make words with their numbers, so, for example, if your licence was 41415 - it would read E I E I O!!
The government periodically sells "special" numbers, like 78787 (which would give you a pretty ziggy zaggy licence), and what about 5555 - that would be 0000! Or 4444 would be EEEE! The auction price of these special numbers sometimes start at Dh60 000 (R120 000) and can reach astronomical sums - and they sell like hot cakes. Someone told me that you can buy these numbers for life, and actually leave them in your will to your lucky inheritors ... I think I would rather have the pearls thank you!
