According to Hanif, the number of users registered with JPJeBid was 263,631 when the bidding processed was closed for the DDV series. Out of the total, 1,909 were involved, and from that total, only 963 bidders succeeded.
All registration numbers that were successfully bidded online are required to be registered to a vehicle within 12 months from the date of the offer letter issued by JPJ.
Hanif then explained that any registration numbers not sold through the online bidding process will be offered to the public for them to purchase at minimum prices.

He also encouraged members of the public to get their own mySIKAP ID so that they can get a list of current numbers that have not yet been registered and then buy them online.
