Nice! I once spotted a Northwest Territories on the QEW by Stoney Creek. I actually passed it and couldn't get back behind it again, so I exited the QEW and then got back on so that I could catch up to it again.

License plates in Spain are national ones, they did not denote provinces since the year 2000 (never denoted cities).

They begin by four numbers (0000 to 999) followed by three letters (BBB to ZZZ), excluding vowels to avoid bad words, letters CH and LL since only three letters are permitted, and the letters Ñ and Q to avoid any confusion with N and O.

Yes ;-)

They denoted the provinces, although I admit there was some confusion. SE is for Sevilla, the province, although the capital is Sevilla (same name). In some other cases it is different, for example, O is for Asturias, not Oviedo, but O is used instead of AS. Other example, NA was used for Navarra, the province, although the capital is Pamplona. It is common that the name of the province has the same name as the capital.

By the way, the most funny Spanish plate, at least for me, was O-0000-O.

Take a look at:

In some cases, cities can be defined by detailed information of vehicle and license plate spots, uploaded to Platesmania.com.
All spots of modern Spanish license plates with literal combination HRG: http://platesmania.com/es/gallery.ph...vote=?&lang=en
Places where spots were made, are specified in detailed information field.

The province plates did not necessary say where the owner lived.
The plates stayed by the car for it whole lifetime and did not change when the owner moved or the car was sold to another province.

E.g. it was not easy to sell a Madrid plated car in Barcelona!

When do Belgian plate numbers start on "0"? For vintage cars?

If the license plate starts with a "O", this car is registered as a Oldtimer.
These are the new style license plates the previous type a license plate had the next combination 1-OAA-111.

Noooo... the american culture of messing with the background of license plates to make it not legible is coming to NSW... Learn from the big old papa UK instead of the wild American cousins

Interestingly enough this was also shot in Hamilton. I've seen Yukon on more than one occasion but never NWT and this was my first time seeing Nunavut

We have had them for a few years but they are quite expensive. Can't say I've seen any on the roads.

Most are like this, colour matched to the car
