Hungary does not have district/city based licence plates. MLU could be whatever city.

According to information from Platesmania (spots and places, where those spots were made), MLU plates were evidently issued in the Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county (as well as in the city of Miskolc), but it's not a fact they were entirely issued (from 001 to 999) there.

Does someone know how the new system on 2015 plates from Moldova works? Is the combination issued randomly or in sequence (so after ABC-123 there's ABC-124)? I've seen more plates starting with low letters (and photographed one starting with Q) than starting with A, they're personalized perhaps?

Literal combinations in new Moldovan system were issued in sequence at first (from AAB to AAP as well). Now they are issued randomly.

Internal plates

Internal plates, valid only inside complex in which other vehicles are in normal conditions usually banned, but due to big number of vehicles it is unacceptable to leave them unmarked.

Plates of Serbian and ex Yugoslavian car and arms factory Zastava from Kragujevac. ZCZ - "Zavodi Crvena zastava" (eng. Zavods/Factories "Crvena zastava"). Black on yellow with red star (in form ZCZ*12-34).




Plates of Zagreb airport (ZLZ - "zračna luka - Zagreb", eng. "air port Zagreb"); white on blue (ZLZ-5678).

Vehicle License Plates in Pakistan - Balochistan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Azad Jammu & Kashmir, and Gilgit-Baltistan
Thusfar in this series, I have covered three separate provinces and territories in individual posts.

Islamabad Capital Territory in #3870

Punjab in #3871

Sindh in #3878.

In this post, I shall cover license plates from four separate provinces and territories. These shall include Balochistan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (Formerly: North-West Frontier Province), Azad Jammu & Kashmir, and Gilgit-Baltistan (Formerly: Northern Areas).

Balochistan

License plates from Balochistan are a rare sight to most Pakistanis. As a province of less than 8 million people in a country of over 190 million people, it's already rare to see cars from that part of the country. Additionally, most people from Balochistan prefer to have their vehicles registered in Sindh. In fact, I saw my first Balochistan license plate "in the wild" just a few months ago. Therefore, I won't be able to give an accurate chronological look at license plates from Balochistan as I have done so previously.

First Series (1947 to Mid 1980s)

Just as done so in other parts of the country from 1947, Balochistan adopted the three letters followed by one to four numerals for vehicle licence registration numbers. The first two letters would denote the city/district where the vehicle was registered. AN example below:

QUA 1234 - QU would denote the city of origin of the vehicle (Quetta in this case) and A would be part of the continuing series which would end at Z. The numerals would follow the same pattern from 0001 to 9999.

LAA 1234 - LA would denote the city of origin of the vehicle (Lasbela in this case).

These license plates would be simple. A black backdrop with white font or inversed. Unfortunately, I could not find a clear image of such a plate online.

Second Series (Mid 1980s to 2001)

The second series, introduced somewhere in the mid 80s, was based on the Third Series in Sindh. The plate itself had a black backdrop and white font. The registration number itself was based on two letters followed by four numerals. The bottom of the plate was inscribed with the city/district in which the vehicle was registered.

Quote:


Standard Balochistan License Plate (Mid 80s to 2001)
Third Series

The third series, introduced in 2001, was based on the Fourth Series in Sindh (1995-2015). It featured three letters (AAA to ZZZ) and three numerals (001 to 999). However, there were a few notable differences in this from the Sindhi standard.

The plates featured a white backdrop with a black embossed font and border with the State Emblem of Balochistan painted in the middle. Furthermore, BALOCHISTAN was embossed on top of the plate whilst the city/district of origin of the vehicle would be embossed on the bottom.

Quote:




Standard Balochistan License Plates (2001 to Early 2010s)

Note: The first vehicle is registered in the city of Sibi and the second is registered in the city of Lasbela.
Fourth Series (Early 2010s to Present)

The fourth series, though the same in aesthetics and design as the last series, saw a change in the registration series. Three letters were replaced by just two and three numerals were increased to four. Everything else, including the design and font, remained the same.

Quote:


Standard Balochistan License Plate (Early 2010s to Present)
Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (Formerly: North-West Frontier Province)

First Series (1947-1995)

Just as in the previous cases, the first series in NWFP was based on the nationally adopted standard of three letters followed by four numerals where the first two letters denoted the city or district in which the vehicle was registered. These plates were subsequently replaced by the second series as many people chose to re-register their vehicles once the new series was adopted.

Second Series (1995-Present)

The second series gave NWFP license plates a new identity. Firstly, they introduced a unique registration system. One letter (A to Z) followed by four numerals (0001 to 9999). This was later expanded to two letters (AA to ZZ). Additionally, the new plates featured the State Emblem of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, named North-West Frontier Province at the time, in color. On top of the plate, "NWFP" was embossed in black (Changed to Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa in 2009) and on the bottom the city or district in which the vehicle was registered was embossed in black (or white on Government vehicles).

Three variants of this series exist. Private vehicle license plates have a white backdrop with a black embossed font. Commercial vehicles have an orange backdrop (similar to the current plates for private vehicles in Sindh) with a black embossed font and government vehicles have a green backdrop with a white embossed font.

It used to be slightly different for government vehicles before 2014, where only a small green strip at the bottom would differentiate it from a standard private license plate.

Standard NWFP Commercial/Public License Plate (1995-2009)



Standard KPK Government License Plate (2009-Present)

Azad Jammu & Kashmir

Due to the Kashmir Crisis, which began in 1948 and continues to this day, Pakistani Administered Kashmir hasn't formally been incorporated into the country as of yet even though it is a de facto province. Since 1947, while the rest of the country saw uniformity in how to standardize their vehicle registration and licensing, Azad Kashmir and the Northern Areas (now Gilgit-Baltistan) chose a different path.

Quote:


The earliest license plates from Azad Kashmir can be seen from 1947. Three letters (AJK) followed by three numerals.
Until the late 90s, AJK did not have a robust standardized vehicle registration system in place. Then their first computerized series was introduced based on what was already being implemented across the rest of Pakistan.

First Series (Late 1990s to 2009)

The first standardized licence plates in Azad Kashmir were based directly on the NWFP (KPK) plates at the time. The color schemes, registering systems and even the design was based on what was already being implemented in NWFP (KPK). The only difference was the change of the state emblem, when AJK incorporated their state emblem into their license plate.

Quote:


Standard AJK License Plates (Late 90s-2009)
Second Series (2009-Present)

Just as KPK modified it's standardization method in 2009, AJK adopted the same method. However, they brought about a change in the design of the license plates. Based on the license plates in Punjab at the time, they dedicated a quarter in the left to a symbol, the Chinar leaf. The Symbol of Kashmir. The rest of the design was based on the existing Islamabad license plate at the time.

Quote:


Standard AJK License Plate (2009-Present)
Gilgit-Baltistan (Formerly: Northern Areas)

To this day, GB continues to use the old (XXA 1234) method of registering vehicles based on cities or districts with no standardized license plates. Until 2010, the region was just an unincorporated territory with no central government which is why residents had their vehicles registered in AJK. However, it's expected that they will introduce standardized license plates very soon.

The earliest registration plates in Islamabad which you can see on the roads today follow a standard series which was implemented from the 1960s up until the early 2000s.

This series was based on the preexisting series being implemented nationwide since 1947. Three letters (IDx) followed by four numerals (1234). The first two letters (ID) denoted the city or district within which the vehicle was registered (Islamabad in this case) and the following letter (x) was part of the continuing series. Vehicles registered in the early 70s were likely to have registration plates such as IDA 1234 and vehicles registered in the early to mid 2000s were likely to have registration plates such as IDM 1234. These were non computerized and all their data was backed up in hard-copied archives.

The registration plates themselves were almost entirely black with white/silver/gold font used for the registration code itself. The plates were non standardized which is why you saw most vehicle owners use custom fonts and colors on their registration plates. An example of this series can be seen below.



Additionally, during this time period, Government and Law Enforcement Forces had specialized registration plates in Islamabad. Government vehicle plates had a green backdrop and the lettered prefixes were always denoted as IDG (G = Government) followed by four standard numerals. Police vehicles followed a similar standard with a blue backdrop with the standard IDP (P = Police) prefix followed by four standard numerals.




Second Series: Early 2000s to 2015

In the early to mid 2000s, The Capital Excise and Taxation Department introduced new vehicle registration plates. These were computerized and upon registration, you'd receive a standard issue registration plate. These plates had a white backdrop with a black border and standardized font. The series consisted of two letters (xx) followed by a hyphen and three numerals (123). Additionally, ICT (Islamabad Capital Territory) would be embossed on top of the plate whilst ISLAMABAD would be embossed on the bottom.

The series began with Government and Police vehicles reserving the Gx series for their vehicles along with a green background. Private vehicles started off with the Hx series and completed the entire chain of alphabets before going from Ax to Fx in early 2015.





Third Series: 2015-2016

The third series introduced in 2015 was an extension of the second series. The only difference was the design of the issued registration plates. The series remained the same [XX-123] but the redesigned registration plates featured a graphic vector silhouette of the Faisal Mosque in the backdrop.

This design, though popular for its minimalist aesthetics, was largely criticized by law enforcement agencies as the silhouette backdrop often made it difficult to identify the registration number at a glance. It was therefore dropped just after a year as the fourth series was introduced in 2016.



Fourth Series: 2016-Present

The fourth series saw a revamp in the standardization of vehicle registration. As the two letter series had run its course, a new three letter hyphen three numerals series (XXX - 123) series was introduced in early 2016. The new series came with a new standard design for the license plates. The left quarter featured a light blue rectangle with a white vector of the Faisal Mosque whilst the remaining three quarters featured a white backdrop with the registration number embossed onto it in black.



Special License Plates: Diplomatic and International Envoy Vehicles

The United Nations and Diplomatic Envoys present in Islamabad have special license plates allotted to them since the city is the capital and houses almost all the diplomatic and UN missions in the country.

Diplomatic license plates are the most easily recognizable in Islamabad. They feature a dark red backdrop with with embossed font for the registration number. Islamabad is embossed on the bottom of each plate. Two letters (CD - Capital Diplomat) followed by two or three numerals signifying the country of origin of the diplomatic mission which are based on the alphabetical ranking of the country, hyphen, followed by two to three numerals (signifying the rank of the vehicle within the diplomatic mission of the country). As an example, CD - 01 - 01 would be the official vehicle of the ambassador of Afghanistan to Pakistan in Islamabad.

The UN plates follow the international pattern of UN 12-3456 with a standard light blue or yellow backdrop with a black font. Since it is illegal to photograph vehicles of international envoys in Islamabad, very few photographs of them exist. Below are a few examples.
I can understand that the third series (2015-16) had some issues for identify the registration, but it looked way better and more modern than the fourth series

^ Note that Belgium changed format to basic 1-ABV-234, but new acts allows basically everything on field of custom plates.

Also, it is interesting that Denmark uses black-on-white as private, black-on-yellow as commercial, and black-on-yellow-and-white as plates for vehicles in combined use.

------ ------

BTW, any news about British plates and Euroband?

Saw this while in Rabaul, Papua New Guinea. On newer PNG plates, the first letter denotes the province. This was shipped over from Lae.

Hello SkyscraperCity Community,
Last weekend I saw in southern Germany, near the Austrian border a very strange license plate, but couldn´t take any photo, because I was driving. It was a BMW 2 Active Tourer with Navy Blue License Plates and White font and the Format was OI 169***. The font didn´t seem like the European Designs here.
