(1) Trondheim issued from VP 10000 to 10089 because of a mistake by the plate manufacturer in November 2001.

(2) Støren issued some VS plates from August 2006 before returning to VT.

(3) Levanger commenced issues from XL 10000, but from 1.1.2002 XK has been used.
XL reached just above 36000.

(4) Harstad (YZ) jumped from 45925 to 89920 because of a new computer system. Similar situations occured in Setesdal (PL), Stavanger (RH/RJ), Mosjøen (XV), Mo i Rana (YA), Fauske (YK), Svolvær (YT),
Tromsø (ZE), Finnsnes (ZF), Storslett (FK), Vadsø (ZP) and Kirkenes (ZS). Skien (NE) skipped around 30 000,
Steinkjer (XD) around 3000, Stjørdal (XN) around 4000 and Narvik (YN) around 4000 numbers previously reserved for green plates.

(5) Finnsnes issued from ZD 10000 to 10010 from 27.11.2001, probably by mistake.
After reaching ZF 99999 in May 2004, ZD continued.

From October 2001 a new centralized computer system is in use. The use of large separate blocks of numbers for green plates has been abandoned and all issues have jumped ahead to the
highest series. For example Harstad jumped ahead from YZ 45924 to the end of YZ 89900.
