New BC License Plates | News



I've started seeing these around lately, but apparently they are just optional and cost an extra $30. The old plate is still the official one. I like the design but I think the 2010 logo makes it worse. They should remove that, and leave the rest, making this the new official provincial license plate. The old ones are very dated!

I like the new plates, but can't stand the "Best Place on Earth" phrase. You can't beat good ole "Beautiful BC" -- says the same thing without the bragging!

Do you have to change your license plate number or do they reprint your current one?

Isn't the blue/green/white the Paralympics logo?

I agree that the new plate looks too cluttered and the slogan sucks. The rising sun logo is also weak. The setting sun is what's on the flag. At least it's optional.
The words British Columbia are spaced too far apart.
At least there's a place on it for the expiry date - not just in the middle between the numbers like on my car.

The Vancouver 2010 Games colours are blue, green, and white. Every Olympic Games, there's a distinct colour scheme and design to the banners and everything, and this is ours:

"British" and "Columbia" are too far apart. Couldn't they put the month and year in the corner rather than the middle?

Wow, thats a good surprise!

Here in Brazil all the plates are the same, no matter what state (province) you are!

I loved the old BC's plate, but this one looks much better IMO!

'The Best Place on Earth.'

Talk about making a statement.

As you can see, the Vancouver 2010 brand; also known as the "Games brand":

That is an extremely ugly plate. Also, the best place on earth ahs to be one of the worst slogans ever.

I like the one that spyro made. It looks very fresh.

That plate is going to look cluttered in northern BC where there are 4 numbers and 2 letters, example: (1234 AB). And they are wayyyyy harder to read for those of us who do that for a living.

One of my neighbours got the new plate, and it looks just as crappy in person. The plate number barely stands out against the background; they really should fade the background off a bit.

Besides, I never liked the rising sun logo anyway. Looks way too generic.
