Highest sightings of
Norwegian trade plates

In June 2015 a new centralized trade plate series started from AAA 10 (although AAA 60 seems to have been the first issued). It seems the new series is being used all over the country and remaining registrations in the old series are not being used.

These are highest sightings of trade plates.
Bear in mind that few trade plates from northern Norway are seen in southern Norway, where I live.

Old numbers are re-issued once an office has exhausted its combinations.

I don't keep track of provisional adhesive plates (3 digits).
This is because they are re-issued and aren't always issued in ascending order of letters.

Since 2002 trade plates are smaller than before and reflective.
Trailer trade plates have the letter T as a suffix to the registration.
In the 1971-2001 plate style they had the legend FOR TILHENGER.
Two line motorcycle trade plates existed in the 1971-2002 style, but not after that.

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.
Plates in 1971 style in underlined lettering.

Thanks to the following for contributing in 2017: Harald Johansen, Kim Håvard Andersen and John Harrison.
(1) In current lists Sandefjord is listed only with LY and Larvik LS,LT,LU,LV,LX,LZ,NA,NB,NC. However, Sandefjord had already used LZ. It is believed that trade plates from Larvik and Sandefjord are now in a single series.
(2) Bergen started re-issuing from SN when SZ 99 was reached. TA commenced in 2008.
(3) ZN trade plates have been used both in Tromsø and Svalbard.
