See where in Norway the licence plates were issued.

A registration number consists of a combination of letters and numbers.

  • The initial letter combination often derives from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office (trafikkstasjon) that has issued it.
  • The number series for cars and lorries runs from 10000 to 99999, but for other vehicles it runs from 1000 to 9999.
