I` ve been searching the web for a good answer, but no one seems to know. People here just do not see the point of changing the license plate design for the third time since 2002.

The current license plates of Spain date of September 2000. The former plates had provincial codes, and that was a problem for car dealers: selling a second-hand car in a different province was a problem. Also, a car with the "M" (Madrid) in "B" (Barcelona), for example, is prone to be honked at

The old system was:

P-000000 to P-999999
P-0000-A to P-9999-Z
P-0000-AA to P-9999-ZZ
Being "P" the provincial code (one or two letters). The problem is that Madrid and Barcelona were about to reach the 9999-ZZ limit in the year 2000.


The new system:

0000 BBB to 9999 BBB, then 0000 BBC and so on until 9999 ZZZ. There are no vowels, Ñ or Q.


Some examples I've found on the net:

An old one from Madrid. This format is called "ordinaria larga" (ordinary, long).

From Asturias ("O" is for Oviedo). O-0000-O. This format is called "ordinaria alta" (ordinary, tall). It's also used in rear doors of 4x4, or vans such as Citroën Berlingo or Peugeot Partner.

From Pontevedra.


From Burgos. The European band was optional.


The current ones. The European band is compulsory.


For motorbikes (>49cc). The typography is slightly different.
An old one from LOgroño

A new one:


For mopeds (<49cc). "C" is for "ciclomotor".


The "Special" ones. Used in tractors and other special vehicles. Old system: LO-VE is for "LOgroño - Vehículo Especial".

New system. E 0000 BBB.


Another "Special" plate

As for the "plastic" or acrylic plates, they are legal in Spain since last year. They don't deform when hitting another car while parking, are easier to clean...

it's quite funny that one of the reasons why nunavut won against the northwest territories in terms of getting the same license plate design is because NWT's real logo is a three-legged polar bear, while nunavut suggested an anatomically correct 4-legged polar bear, which isn't the same as NWT's.

How many cars do really have Nuvanut plates? Probably no more then 6000. By the way, Is it possible to drive to Nuvanut from southern Canada?

How come a Postojna car plate can have a coat of arms of Ptuj? What system do you have?
