...my license plate I mean Big grin
Being in the Emerald Isle, it's white, rectangular; and is written like that :
9-D-*****, 96 being the year in which the car was registered, D stands for "Dublin" and the 5 other numbers the actual reg. There's the mandatory blue "EU" flag and "IRL" identification in the left corners and "Baile Atha Cliath" in small characters at the top. (I'll leave you figure that one out yourself).
Example :

What does yours look like ?

Here's SC's:



That's the standard one, but there are something like 30-40 other designs you can choose from, ranging from Purple Heart to your college to one commemorating the CSS Hunley, the first submarine to sink a ship in combat, although you have to pay extra for the specialized plates.

The standard plate usually has six characters - 3 digits and 3 letters, such as
123 ABC. After all such combinations are used up, the 3 letter series will come first (ABC 123). After that...time to redesign the plates!

My French one looks like that :



It is usually 2 to 4 digits, then 2 or three letters, then 2 digits giving away where you are from.

You cannot have custom plates in France, and what is on your plate is determined by

1st, your location (the last 2 digits. Here, 73 means Elbonia)
Then, the letters currently in use in your location. When I registered, it WAS TM. When all the digits associated with TM are used, next letter couple are used. So After 9999 TM 73, next licence plate will be 10 TN 73. After the 9999 TZ 73, it shall be 10 UA 73 (or probably 10 VA 73, for some reason, it looks like U is not used).

When it gets to 9999 ZZ 73 (already happened a long time ago in morepopulated area, like Paris), it goes to 3 letters, but only uo to 3 digits. So 10 AAA 73. But it probably won't arrive, since French licence plates are too be modified soon.

On the left side of the plate is the European part : F for France, written on blue, and the 12 European stars

Colour codes are : front plate Black on White, rear plate : Black on Yellow.

Some Savoisiens like to show their patriotism by having Withe over Red plates, but that is slightly illegal.

America's Dairyland!



This is the new design introduced in 2000, 3 digits, dash, and 3 letters (123-ABC). I actually got the old design, not much different but with red lettering on white background also 3 letters, dash, and 3 digits (ABC-123).

This is the system here in Germany:



On the left side, you get the blue EU identification with a white "D" for "Deutschland" (Germany) in it.

The next segment to the right contains between one and three letters. This is the identification code of the "Stadt" (City) or "Landkreis" (County) your car is registered in.

After that, a dash separated the location code from the personal license number. It consists of between one and two letters, followed by between one and four numbers.

This combination can be selected by the car owner, however the sequence

EU country Identity/ Location Code/ dash/ 1-2 letters/1-4 numbers

cannot be altered.

Also, in Germany, it is not permitted to choose a sequence of letters or numbers with negative connotation, e.g. NS, SS, SA or KZ.

E.g. my license plate would be

WAF-JF (my initials) (and two numbers for my year of birth)

I have the standard red, white, and blue Mt. Ranier plate on my Washington registered Ford Escort. Washington also has plates for the universities (UW, WSU, Western, Central, Eastern Washington), square dancing, and Safeco Field.

Oregon standard plates feature an evergreen tree and Mt. Hood. Those ones are coming to the end of the run--ZZZ 999 is fast approaching. Some people choose the Conestoga Wagon, Save the Salmon or the Native American plates instead.

GO CANUCKS!!
