I really find this comment irrelavant....

P.S: Cars that come from your country don't normally wear mexican plates, they keep the american plates. These cars are more than 10 years old and are definatly not the mayority, I can tell you have never been to Mexico.

Certainly not the best looking plate around, definitely time for re-design. But the licenses aren't bad...



(P.S. The license above is not mine, I just found it online through Google image search.)

We have 9 provinces and 7 of the 9 have a standardised format, 3 letters, 3 digits then the province identifier, eg PKB 075 GP. KwaZulu Natal and the Western Cape Province still have the older system which has a 2 or 3 letter town identifier then up to 6 digits, eg CA 251 819.

Most of the provinces also allow personalised plates which can be any combination of up to 7 characters, plus the province code. One of the most original I have seen was on a VW Beetle and the licence plate was Y2K BUG. Personalised plates can be transferred from one vehicle to the other.

This is mine on one of my old BMWs, it is currently on my motorcycle.

As we have standartised license plates in Europe every country in the EU has the blue part in which the countries abbreviation is. D for Germany D(eutschland). S for S(weden) and NL for Netherlands... Ok you get the idea.
System in Germany is now. The first 1 to 3 characters mean the city or town where the car is registered. In the picture is S for Stuttgart.
small citys have 3 characters as mine (NOH = Nordhorn).
After that city we usually have 2 characters which wheter are chosen by you or are set randomly if you don't care.
After that you have 2 to 4 Numbers again picked randomly or your wish.
How many numbers there are depends on how many characters there are.
In Stuttgart you'll see many 4 numbered plates cause "Stuggy" only has one character and if you then only choose on character in the middle you'll tend to get 4 numbers.

UK style since 2001 (except Channel Islands/Northern Ireland)

Pre 2001 would be the same style, but number format A123 ABC instead.

Front is the same but white instead of yellow.

You forgot that you have the EU blue field with GB in it.

When i was living they exlpained the meaning of that various seeming numbers and characters. For example it remember that you could read on the plate how old the car is or so...

Would you mind to explain for me?
