Emoji number plates introduced in Australia

Author: Sam Allibone


Drivers in Queensland, Australia will have the option to add emoji faces to their number plates.

Emoji Number Plates

From March 1st 2019, residents of Queensland, Australia will be given the ability to add an emoji to their number plates. This feature will cost extra ($475 AUD/£260 to be precise), but adds a touch of personalisation.

There are five emojis available from the start: the winking face, the heart eyes face, the smiley face, the laughing face and the cool sunglasses face. They won’t be used as an identification marker for the plates; this is still down to the letters and numbers.

Commenters have noted that this is an effective way for the government to raise some extra money, whilst others hoped there would be other emojis, such as the smiling poop.


Let us know below whether you’d like to see this come to the UK!
