Highest sightings of
Norwegian export/ tourist plates

These are highest sightings of export/ tourist plates. Since at least 2019 stickers are used for the month and year of expiry. Earlier you could tilt your head to the left and read the month and year from bottom to top. Now stickers seem to be placed randomly, some can be read top to bottom and some bottom to top.

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