Highest sightings of
Norwegian license plates

These are highest sightings of normal series plates.
Since 2009 white, green and other colour plates are no longer in separate blocks.
The archive is now updated for end of 2013.

Since 2012 aluminium plates in 2006 style are again used. They are shown in normal lettering.
Plastic plates in 2009 style are shown in bold lettering.
Aluminium plates in 2002 style in italic lettering.
Aluminium plates in 1971 style (reflective since 1982) in underlined lettering.

In a proposal dated October 15th 2013 Statens vegvesen wants to discontinue district coding in favour of a centrally issued series for the whole of Norway (except Svalbard). See høringsnotat fra Statens Vegvesen.

(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.
