Encyclopedia > Greek car number plates

Greek car number plates are composed of three letters and four digits per plate (e.g. AAA-1000). The letters represent the district that issues the plates while the numbers begin from 1000 and reach 9999. The same plates but with digits beginning from 1 and ending with 999 are issued to motorbikes that exceed 50 cc.


Except Athens and Thessaloniki (Salonica), all other districts are represented by the first 2 letters while the third changes after 8,999 issued plates. For example Patras district plates are AXA-1000, where AX represents the Achaia district in which Patras is the capital. When AXA-9999 is reached the plates turn to AXB-1000 and this continues until AXX is finished. The letters used are only from the intersection between the Latin and Greek alphabets, namely A, B, E, Z, H, I, K, M, N, O, P, T, Y, X (in Greek alphabetical order), however Greek B, H, P, and X don't have the same meaning as in the English alphabet. The Latin alphabet, also called the Roman alphabet, is the most widely used alphabetic writing system in the world today. ... Note: This article contains special characters. ...


The combinations used for overseas residents are L-DDDD (where L = letter and D = digit) and are limitedly used. Some vehicles (e.g. sport utility vehicles) and tractors are not part of this system; they are given DDDDD. Until 2003, taxis used L-DDDD; the plate was aligned with the prefecture and the letters were colored red. 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


History

When license plates were introduced to Greece, they were numbered and in the 1960s, the system was DDD-DDD. They became lettered and the system was LL-DDDD while trucks used L-DDDD until the 1980s, when they changed to LLL-DDDD and now use this present system. The 1960s decade refers to the years from 1960 to 1969, inclusive. ... The 1980s decade refers to the years from 1980 to 1989, inclusive. ...
