Highest sightings of Norwegian
four numeral license plates

These are highest sightings of four numeral plates. Such plates are used for trailers, motorcycles, mopeds, agricultural tractors, snow scooters and motorized equipment.

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.

Plates with four numerals are no longer issued with geographical coding. Officially since 9 Feb 2017, a single series is used for the whole country. This is issued alphabetically with combinations that were still not completed, starting with AC, BA and BB.

Thanks to the following for contributing in 2021: Harald Johansen, Jon Arild Skedsmo, Kim Andersen and Arild Gill.
(1) Registrations for Fredrikstad and Sarpsborg have merged into a single series issued from a new office in Hafslund. After AT was exhausted, AH was finished, followed by AU, AV and AW.

Numbers are issued in blocks of varying sizes to single line and double line plates of two different sizes. It is beyond the scope of this page to go into details and I only list the highest sightings regardless of plate type.


Have you spotted any higher? Contact Olavsplates and I will include them in the list.
