this seems too much obsession with "verbotten" letters and numbers.

The fact there are so many prohibited combinations only make them more 'appealing' for people who like them just because they are forbidden to begin with. Like those people who put stickers reading "Need for Speed" or something like that.

No, because you may compose them as ADO LF 88.

Sorry, this was impolite

When talking about offensive license plate combinations I find it funny that a combination such as SE-X 000 or SE-XY 00 seems to be no problem at all. I've seen many of those.
I think I can even remember seeing AN-AL 000 about 10 Years ago or so.

Okay, we've reached the point of no return...... I have to tell the truth now!

It is right that every district (Landkreis) has it's own code, e.g. RO for "Landkreis Rosenheim".

But our beloved politicians had a great idea some years ago to reduce bureaucracy: It is allowed in some states to keep your old license plate when you are moving from one district of your state to another district, e.g. when moving von Rostock to Schwerin you can keep your HRO license plate.

But we are Germans. We are living in a free country. Why not to allow the codes of former districts too? So it is also allowed since 2012 that the inhabitants of Bad Aibling can choose between RO, AIB and WS because some parts of the today's Rosenheim district where part of the former Bad Aibling or Wasserburg districts until 1972. There is also no general rule so some districts allow it and some districts don't allow it.........

Can't do that here in Austria. I live in SZ, and if I want to move to IL or KU (neighbouring districts) I have to cough up 170€ and re-register my vehicle.

Total costs for the three sections (42km): 569 million €, see press release (published on 30th July 2013).
The last A49 plan approval order is also legal now (VKE40). The complaint was rejected by the Federal Administrative Court today, see press release.

I actually support this. In PL as I understand if you move, you have to trade plates on the car, and actually give old ones back so they can re-use number. It isn't right to make person go through such trouble and expense for silly reason (so has the right 3 letters...)

Of course in Canada and US as long as in the same state, usually no plate change required since plate doesn't show where you come from

Why not having a national register, so you don't have to swap anything?

It would be about time to have a common EU register...

I criticize that there is a rule that your license plate number have to begin with a shortcut of your district. I am not sure but I think to ensure that you are paying taxes. The fiscal authorities are also district dependant. The next level in the hierarchy is the state. Therefore it was possible to allow moving within the state w/o registering again. It is a temporary matter until you buy a new car just to reduce bureaucracy. That's good.

But now you can't recognize where the owner lives. I think there is no need to retain that damn district shortcuts. Why not allowing to keep the license plate number when moving nationwide? Why not to establish a system like in Italy w/o a district dependant identification? I think this would be a consequential next step, a national register and maybe a EU register.

But our beloved politicians relauned old shortcuts of historic districts to force local identity. Many people want to have the "new" old shortcut and re-register their cars just to get this damn "new" old shortcut. Is this also a reduction of bureaucracy? .

I actually like to show where I come from, or see where others call home. It makes driving long distances much more from. I find the Dutch or Belgian system very boring, as plates are issued randomly.

The French used to have their departement number within their license plates, untill they have changed it into random as well, causing a wave of protests from French people, who are quite rightfully claiming that they like to take "home" wherever they go. Now it's optional to have your departement number AND logo on the right-hand side of the plate, like they do in Italy.

I live since eight years in Göttingen (GÖ) and my car still has the old license plates from my old home town Lüdenscheid (MK = Märkischer Kreis)!

And I hadn´t any problems with that. Nobody from the town or the police wrote me a letter to change my license plates. And yes, I´m officially registered in Göttingen.

Anyway, beginning next July it will be possible to move within Germany without the need to change your license plates.

Ab Juli darf das Kfz-Kennzeichen mit umziehen

Fahrzeughalter sparen Zeit und Geld. Wer umzieht, kann sein Kfz-Kennzeichen an den neuen Wohnort mitnehmen. Ab Mitte 2014 soll die Abmeldung des Fahrzeugs online möglich sein.

I registered my car in Ancona (Italy) five years ago, since then I lived in Bologna, Brescia, München, Foggia and Turin. Had I been forced to change plates every time...

There are actually quite a few states that show the county name on the license plate, mostly southern states it seems. Some also show the county by a letter/number code, like in Germany. I don't know, but I always assumed this was was so the police could keep a close eye on the "outsiders!" Here's one example:

It is actually happening in my country. There is a hidden rivalry between capital ("rich" region) and other (especially rural (poor)) areas. Police in rural areas is usually strict to drivers with licence plates with capital city code on. They abuse disorientation of non-domestic drivers and, on contrary, considers law violation of domestic drivers very loose.

It is quite similar vice-versa, but there is a higher chance of immigrants to be employed in police and therefore to take law violation of their "neighbours" loose as well.

I'm sure his insurance policy is nationwide. Just like it would be in the UK.

What I mean is that, as part of my degree, I'm going to spend 15 months in France, but I can't spend more than 90 days abroad on my insurance, which means I'm going to have to re-register the cat twice. G.spinoza took his car to Germany, but kept an Italian registration.
