Export/ tourist plates
In early 2004 Oslo reached 19999 and started over again from 10000 (or 10001?).

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 1971/1982 style in underlined lettering.

Note that stocks of old plates have been used so that Trondheim and Tromsø
used 1971-2002 style plates at least until 2005.
