Perhaps a bit of bias (I happened to grow up there) but I think UK plates - and the offshoot of the same HK etc. are about the best looking there are. Bold, distinctive, classic font.

I also like old French plates - elegant silver font on a black background.

Spanish Diplomatic plate from a US diplomat...

....in Puerto Rico. I'll assume it's a returning diplomat.

^ Yes, they are.

GA was 1976÷2000. registration mark for Gdańsk, and Y is serial. Plate is from that period.

However, when there's no banned combinations you get things like this. We in Serbia could get SM+001-RT (death), -RČ (slang for аsshоle), -RĆ (small аsshоle), -VO (ox), JA+001-VO (I am ox), -SS, -WC, -UŠ (louse, aphid), -UD (реnis)... There is non-offensive therms, also, but...

Are you finding that people in Kyiv are disappointed that the new plates start with KA instead of AA? Yet another UA plate to get for my collection (the new pseudo Euro band)

The Ukrainian solution actually is an elegant one, the combination of national flag and the blue band that somehow has become so popular to show European-ness (or EU-ness) ....

I agree, a bit of uniqueness like this can really make things more interesting, I'm still personally devastated that Albania ditched the red band : (

KA plates in Kyiv are not issued. There are still free combinations of AA plates. But AA plates with pseudo euro band are more and more visible on the streets.

They actually gave up from own plates, and took Italian version of plates.

^ Without safety-test-pass sticker on plate, again (unregistred status).

Speaking of which, systems like this (German or old Swedish sticker on plate) are very easy to see and check and I believe that it should become a worldwide standard.

Considering Florida, where this picture was taken, has no safety inspection... they might argue :\

It seems that half of the registration number is gone . This is not how a Japanese license plate looks like.

For the first time, ever, the digit zero has entered Iranian license plates
Code 10 Tehran



new codes for other cities entered circulation too:
67 for Isfahan
74 for Mashhad
