The California mentality is that it's only illegal it you get caught.

Plus, it's not like the US and Sweden share driver and vehicle records.

Having said that, they are legal to drive if their registrations are valid, and are only in the US for a year - but again, the validity is interesting, as I stated above, "it's not like the US share driver and vehicle records".

Indonesian license plate and STNK (Surat Tanda Nomor Kendaraan/vehicle registration certificate) expire every 5 years, and prior to expiration date we should have re-register and renew both of our license plate and vehicle registration certificate. We will receive a new plate with the same registration, but with new expiry date.

FYI as the current format of Indonesian license plate was introduced in April 2011, by this month all vehicle in Indonesia should have the new license plate format

Slovenian licence plate from Cejle, Slovenia Photo taken in Linköping, Sweden


I wonder why such a small country like Slovenia needs location prefixes. The stickers with old castles between the letters are quaint but this is not contributing to the clarity of the license plate.

All, ex Yugoslav countries after independents continued Yugoslav codes and type of registration plates. Today, even Montenegro (with only 620.000 inhabitants) have registrations with towns codes. Only Bosnia, and Kosovo today don't have towns code, because UN decided to banned it. But 1st Bosnian (all three types of registrations) had town codes.

It's interesting to know from what area the car comes from, but on the other hand you have to change license plate when you move to another city or if you buy a car outside your own area, which requires time and costs for the vehicle owners. In some countries they probably have these area code license plates in order to occupy the burocrats at the road administration office.

You don't need to change them if you move, at least in Slovenia you're not bound to the region of issue. You can also request any prefix anywhere in the country, the local prefix is just the default option they have in stock, whereas you need to order separately if you want another one.

Nowadays it's really just an issue of town identity, tradition and familiarity. The government wanted to switch to non-identifiable codes a decade or so ago but dropped the plans after complaints from the public. With the current system it really wouldn't make much of a difference.

Well, in Croatia is regulated in way that, where is your official residence you have all official documents including registration plates from area from my official residence. When I change official residence in another address then I must to change whole documents in new official residemce (Identity card, Driving licence, tax card etc.) If I change official residence in area outside of my registration area then I must to change also then registration plates with new town code.

For example: I am living in town Kaštela near Split city in Croatia. My official registration plate's code is ST (Split). If I am moving (officially) to live in Split I don't need to change my registration plates on car. But if I am moving in Zagreb (ZG code) I must to change registration plates on car with ZG code.

Also you don't need to change all official documents if you have temporarily address. Then you all documents (except tax card for income taxes) are still on your official residence address, including registrations plates too.

For example: My official residence address is in town Kaštela, but beacuse of work I moved in Zagreb. I reported to Police temporarily address residence in Zagreb. I don't need to change any official document (identity card, driving licence etc.) except income tax card (what I am going to do in Tax office) including my cars registration places who will be still with ST code.

If you buy card for example in Zagreb, and I am living in Kaštela (that is around 350km away), then Police gave you temporarily registration plate (actually registration paper, which paste you on windshield glass, and last glass) which is valid for 5 or 7 days. Then I can transported car from Car saloon to my residence, and then go to Police station and do all bureaucracy to get registration plates.

It is a little bit complicated, but I hope so that you will understand.

[ZSL] License plate from Sławno, Poland. All licenseplates from west Pommerania begin with the letter "Z" while the following letters "SL" means the city of Slawno.

I dont see why it's necessary to use a letter for the region infront of the letters of the city.

German licenceplates dont use any letters for their regions, if they did it would only be confusing. Let's say they used "S" for Sachsen. Dresden licenseplates would be SD instead of DD. Leipzig SL instead of L. It's much easier to understand from what city a german car is compared to the polish area code system.

From 2014. A London bus in Singapore. As you can see, the numbers are British. Apparently, this was a promotion campaign. AFAIK, this bus came back to London afterwards

This feature was loaned from 1956 Polish system, which LPs have two-literal coding by voivodeships and counties before 1975.. In that system, the first letter denoted a voivodeshop, the second one denoted a county.

Proudly present: Liechtenstein special-vehicle plate spotted in St. Gallen (CH).
Default background color of Liechtenstein plates is black. Like in Switzerland, special vehicle categories (farm vehicles, construction machinery etc.) obtain distinct background colors.

It doesn't look like a fine. Probably some commercial flyer...
