I have been working directly with COG on this project.
The first order of business will be to disregard the "specific number requests" from the folks who requested a plate, but did not actually pay for it.
At that stage, we will start at the top of the list, working through the people who paid first/earliest - we will assign plates based on requests in that order.
Then, and only then, will we know which numbers will be assigned to which people -- as stated on the order form, the "number requests" are a value add being offered as a courtesy - the plate purchase is not based on the numbers issued.
Obviously, only one person can receive a particular number combination -- so, as stated, if a request cannot be fulfilled a random plate will still be issued; the plates are being offered for the unique "GC" lettering and the colour logo.
Our project is for the plates in series from 01GC01 thru 01GC99 and 02GC01 thru 02GC99 -- one those plates are distributed the project will be a success and all further transactions will be directly between the public/cachers and Service Ontario.
Folks who would like to buy new personalized plates with a graphic, or who wish to pay to add the graphic to their existing personalized licence plates will be able to approach Service Ontario directly
to fulfill these requests after August.
Bear in mind... Service Ontario will only let you add graphic to licence plates that have 6 or fewer characters
; if you have a 7 or 8 character plate.. there will be no room for a graphic.
They can be given as gifts; they can be hung on the wall; they can be put in a drawer and attached to a vehicle at a later date.
