In a statement, IMT said that about 60,220 registrations were still available to be assigned at the beginning of this year of the current model of registration numbers, consisting of two two-digit groups and a two-letter group (00-AA-00).

“This model, of which 5,109,263 registrations have been made since 25 May 2005, is expected to be exhausted by the end of next February, the institute said, adding that the new series of registrations (with the AA-00-AA model) will have a foreseeable use of about 45 years”.

Year and month to also disappear from car registration plates

According to IMT, with the new format of registration number, a new type of registration plate will also be used for most vehicles, without including the year and month of the first registration of the vehicle, and in all models, the separator features of groups of characters will also be eliminated, maintaining, however, a spacing between the group of characters.
