Why this German plate has "22" as a district code? I know that the letter "H" at the end means that this is a historic vehicle, but I have no idea what "22" means.

EDIT: Ok, nevermind. The plate is photoshopped because of privacy reasons. I will let the picture stay - the car itself is too beautiful for removal

Each individual state decides if they mandate front license plates or not. Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia do not require front license plates.

Why when I see a Swiss car it often has very old and torn out plates? Do you re-issue them since 1932?

Maybe because of this?

Quote:
The license in Switzerland relates to the owner of the vehicle, not the vehicle itself. On selling and purchasing a car, the plates are moved from the old to the new vehicle. One owner can keep many vehicles and move the plates as required from car to car.

I believe it works that way in Belgium too, and you can also some very rusty plates there...

Okay. As a licence-plates-geek I couldn't resist to write an overview of the
polish system
I've used some pictures from Olavsplates - really great site.

Poland is divided in 16 voivodships (województwo), each of which is subdivided in several counties (powiat). Larger cities function as separate counties on their own (so called "city county"). The whole county-concept is similar to German one, with kreise and kreisfreie staedte.

I the years 1976-99 we had black plates with white letters, with code in ABC 1234 format.


Current system was introduced in year 2000. First two or three letters determines the issuing county. The general rule is
that city counties gets two letter codes and other gets three letter ones, although there are some exceptions.

First letter of the county code (it doesn't matter if it is city or ordinary
one) denote county's voivodship. Since the voivodship letter is derived from the voivodship capital, voivodship name or is assigned randomly when no other option is available, the construction of some county codes is bit tricky.

After the county code there is a small, silver sticker and rest of the number. In two-letter counties it consists of 5 digits, When it runs out the last digit is replaced by the letter, after that the next, and so on. In three-letter counties at first four characters (6 different combinations of letters and digits) were used, now in some counties 5 digit scheme is allowed (so the whole plate can consist of 7 or 8 characters).
Motorcycle plates can have only four characters after the county code, but the general idea is the same.

On the left side of the plate is the standard blue band, with euro stars ring and country code. Prior to 1.06.2006 (I know, we were little late :>) there was the polish flag instead of stars.







If someone is interested in the details, here are some examples:
D denotes Dolnośląskie voivodship. It's capital, Wrocław gets DW
code, the county of the Wrocław surroundings (suburbs outside proper city
borders are often independent counties) gets DWR, large city of Jelenia Góra gets DJ, and county of Polkowice gets DPL. No surprises there.

K denotes Małopolskie voivodship, with the capital of Kraków. City of Kraków
gets KR code (remember, the rule is that all 2/3 letters creates the code, so
no "KK" here) and the county of Wieliczka gets KWI.

Then there is Łódzkie voivodship. It's letter is "E", because the letter L was
already taken by Lubelskie v. So, the capital, Łódź gets EL code, my hometown Skierniewice has ES, and the county of Bełchatów gets EBE.

I think that these examples clarified the little-bit-complicated system. Of
course, since this is Poland, the system wouldn't be good without exceptions.
The biggest one is Warsaw. Warsaw is a city county as a whole, placed in
Mazowieckie (letter W) voivodship, but despite this each district gets its own code. The Warsaw's system is totally unrelated to district names (The Downtown (Śródmieście) gets WI, Żoliborz gets WX, Praga Północ gets WF and so on).



Apart from ordinary plates, we can have individual (vanity) ones. The construction of those looks like that: First there must be a voivodship letter followed by a serial digit, and then after the sticker you can put your own text. The text must be 3-5 characters long, and the digits (if you want any) must be placed at the end. So, for example, a car can display E0 LLAMA, W6 SSC, Z9 AGA21 - you get the idea.



The temporary plates consists of a voivodship letter, a serial digit, sticker and four digits. The font is red.


Then, there are special plates for historic vehicles. Their background is yellow and they have a picture of an oldtimer at the end.


Diplomatic plates are blue an have no euroband. They consist of a voivodship letter and six digits.

License plates in Romania:

All license plates are white. The usual license plates use black writing and have a 2 letter county code or B for Bucharest, followed by a set of 2 random numbers and another set of 3 random letters. All letters of the English alphabet are allowed except for Q. Also I and O can't occupy the first position in the 3 letter set. You can personally choose a combination as long as it's not taken, so you can get some interesting numbers like B 66 SIX, B 69 SEX, CT 63 JFK, IS 02 PAC, B 01 ERU etc.. Temporary numbers use the county code or B followed by 6 numbers (red or black):



Diplomatic corps use blue writing on a white background: CD followed by a 3 number set (depending on hierarchy), and another one (representing the country/institution code). There are also CO and TC numbers:



Trolleys and Trams don't use license plates, but they do have vehicle park marking numbers (county-code/B followed by the vehicle park code):
http://ratb.stfp.net/Data/L/x/5302-69:6.jpg
http://ratb.stfp.net/Data/T/3/005-32:4.jpg

Trailers have license plates like regular vehicles. Vehicles in testing (by auto manufacturers) have PROBE written to the left of the actual number.
