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.

Since 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.
