Vehicle plates in your nation

Postby Greater Herzegovina » Tue Apr 10, 2012 1:19 pm

Greater Herzegovina has become a great tourist destination. Lots of cars arrived in Greater Herzegovina but no one knows from which country who came.
Let us shown the vehicle plates in your nation.
What is your country code? How they look like?


Vehicle plates in Greater Herzegovina
Greater Herzegovina wants you to know about their vehicle plates if you visit this beautiful country or if you see cars from GH in your nation/country.

Vehicles registered in Greater Herzegovina are generally assigned to one of the districts and since 2010, the licence plate coding generally consists of 6 characters and takes the form AA-B111, where AA is a two letter code corresponding to the district, B one letter, starts from A and after reaching 999 goes with B, assigned alphabetically from A to Z.

Because The Dual Monarhy of Greater Herzegovina consists of two provinces, Illyria on the north, and Herzegovina on the south, every province has its own coat of arms on its vehicle plates.

The country code of Greater Herzegovina is GH.

There are 47 districts in Greater Herzegovina, 18 in Illyria and 29 in Herzegovina.

Cars are not required to be registered in Fatatatutti but many people do register them because it makes it easier for police to return them if they get "borrowed". Registration stickers are usually placed in a conspicuous place such as a window or bumper. Counterfeit registraton stickers are also popular, for reasons that are unclear since they're of no help to police.

In Lewanhoek, license plates are issued from a central government agency known as the Lewanhoek Licensing Authority. The plates must be visibly affixed to the front and rear of every licensed vehicle, with no covering of any kind present. If the vehicle does not have a means of mounting the plate in the front and/or rear, placing the plate in a visible position from inside the vehicle (generally secured on the dashboard or taped to the rear window) is generally acceptable.

The license plate is used in conjunction with the registration sticker, which is placed on the bottom driver's side of the inside of the windshield. The registration sticker has an information bar code that can be scanned, as well as the visibly printed details of the vehicle's registration.

There are three basic plates: only the first is available to the general public. As you can see, there are four color-coded stickers that can be applied to better categorize the vehicle and its possible occupants.

The second is to be affixed only to emergency service vehicles such as police, fire and medical.

The third is to be affixed only to vehicles licensed by the Diplomatic Service.

Tsvarchivan vehicles don't have plates; instead they are issued a sticker which is placed in the corner of the front and back windows.

The emergency number is really just a space filler/to make it distinctive from other plates, it's nearly impossible to read from any great distance -- we also have the triple zero painted more visibly on the vehicle itself.

Constarusian license plates look like this:

All three provinces have a different color license plate, corresponding with the colors of the flag (In Kapitolijus Province, as you can see, the plates are green; while the other two provinces have blue and teal license plates.)

Plates for official vehicles (such as those belonging to the secret police or the government) look like this:

As you can see, they only have four numbers on them, as opposed to the two letters and four numbers on normal plates.

Here is a license plate in Elbania. The power to issue plates is left to the parths. As long as you renew it annually, you can still drive it, hence why no plates are re-called. However, this is the only parthical license plate issued since this is the only parth we control. Until 1963, when ArghNeedAName took the Parth of Hoelland, we issued parthical license plates.

As for the design seen above, it was first adopted in 1980. Until 1980, the year was at font size 12. Now, it is at font size 4, since 1980, showing the year it is issued. However, in the plates of the Parth of Hoelland (from 1945 to 1963), it used font size 4, so not to obscure the cannon, showing defense of the fatherland.

It is required to use these in order to drive, and if you lost one, you need to report it to the police. Indeed, it has to be both in the front and the back in the Parth of Llamedos.

We have no plates since we have a transponder inside every vehicle which transmits the registration details of that vehicle to police scanners.

Vehicles are allocated by the state and are very scarce. Thus they usually have no plates, but the driver is bound by law to have his paperwork in order.

Licence plates in Costa Fiero are issued to all road going and some military vehicles. They change colour and layout every few years, although the current layout (LLL-NNN) has been around since 1985.

This is the current issue plate series in Costa Fiero:

It has everything which is required to identify what country it came from and which province it was issued in. The letters and numbers are alphabetical and sequential, meaning that the next plate issued in the series would be HMN-358.

Postby Valcluse » Tue Apr 10, 2012 6:43 pm

Vehicle registration plates in Valcluse are the mandatory registration plates issued to vehicles which travel on all Valclusian roads and motorways. The current series was first issued in 2008, although the design of the plate itself dates back to the 1990. All vehicle registrations are handled by the Vehicle Registration and Licencing Authority which registers and licences all civilian registered vehicles.

The current series of plates were first issued in 2008 after the Ministry of Transport decided to facelift the white-on-black plates in issue. The changes included a new typeface and new colours as well as Valcluse in the center above the combination, with the latter remaining unchanged. The plates still lack some form of highly visible way of indentifing that the plates are from Valcluse.

The current combination system works as follows. The first three letters are sequential and alphabetical. The numbers are also sequential. The last two letters indicate the province where the vehicle was registered. In the plate in the picture, the plate was issued in Bizerte. Each province has a series of letter combinations which provide each province with roughly 10,000 sequential plate combinations.

As with previous issue plates, it is impossible to tell from the plate when the vehicle was registered and when its registration expires.

Registration plates in kusthet are similar to the real-world British plate. Featuring a polycarbonate rectangle with two lines of four digits each. The digits are arranged in a pattern as follows;

AA 12
B 123

AA refers to the state in which the car is registered

12 is partially a sequential listing that increments every 26,000 sets of plates, with the numbers 99 and 98 reserved for emergency service and government vehicles, respectively.

B is an alphabetical listing that increments every 1000 sets of plates

123 is the final division of the listing, and counts which individual entry in the registration database the vehicle corresponds to.

Primarily, and by default, they are available in the national mustard yellow, with a white strip down the left side, featuring a Kirin sigil similar to the flag, and black lettering, though custom plates are available by request, and can vary wildly in colour and materials.

The numbers and letters visible are mostly a sequential listing of the car's registration value, to make paperwork easier should registration plates be transferred or damaged and require replacement.

Licence plate in our nations:

The first letter is reserved for which province the car comes from, so for example Nordica has T-Z. Some letters are reserved: A are for rental cars, B is for the Army G is for government vehicles etc.
The second letter comes from the Area it originates from, however, with 26 letters of the alphabet and 156 Areas, each area is grouped into a subsection.
The third letter detonates the type of vehicle - car, commercial truck, etc.
The following five numbers are completely random.

The front plates are white, and the rear plates are yellow. Both are reflective. There is a black border around each plate.

Our license plates look like this:


AC - This is the first two letters of the dealership's postcode.
12 - The last two letters of the year.
D - This is the month that the vehicle was originally licensed (A = January, B = February and so on; I is skipped, so it goes from A to M).
WVE - These three letters are randomly chosen.

Diplomatic cars have a seperate plate. They look like this:

12D XXX 167

12 - The year the vehicle was licensed.
D - This shows its a diplomatic car.
XXX - Three letter code for the country.
167 - These three numbers are randomly chosen.
Please note: Central Lothian is the direct successor to Mid Lothian*. As a result, I am still called Rebecca, I am still a Grammar Nazi and most information pertaining to ML also applies to CL (although I will be taking this time to change a few things).

* - And I may refer to the country as Mid Lothian. If I do, assume that I mean Central Lothian. (And not to be confused with "Midlothian" - I'm using that as a fascist version of CL.)
