Number, logo, and plate

05/07/24

The new numbering

The format is now: 2 letters, one dash, 3 digits, one dash and two letters, which offers 289,341,840 possible vehicle registrations, enough to last about seventy years. However, certain letters and combinations are prohibited to avoid any risk of confusion.

 

You cannot choose or change your plate number, as it is assigned automatically by the system.

 

Some letters are not used, such as I, O and U, to avoid confusion with the numbers 1 and 0 and the letter V.
Only one combination of two letters is banned, SS, to comply with the French Criminal Code, which "punishes the wearing or display of insignias reminiscent of those of organisations or persons responsible for crimes against humanity".

 

However, you are free to choose your territorial identifier (region logo).
