In Germany , vehicles serving consular institutions are identified by oval stickers with the letters CC (Corps consulaire). Consulate vehicles are marked with the registration district and a number between 900 and 999, 9000 and 9999 and 90000 and 99999. Around 4,000 vehicles with special diplomatic IDs are currently registered in Germany, 2,830 of them in Berlin .
Honorary consuls , on the other hand, have a normal civil registration number, but are also allowed to attach the identification with the additional CC plate to their vehicle.
In Austria , the vehicle registration numbers for members of the consular corps are structured as follows: First there is a letter that indicates the federal state in which the consular mission concerned is located:
- B - Burgenland
- G - Steiermark (actually ST , but G is used here for Graz )
- K - Carinthia
- N - Lower Austria
- O - Upper Austria
- S - Salzburg
- T - Tyrol
- V - Vorarlberg
- W - Vienna
This is followed by another letter, which indicates the consular status: K (consul), followed by a hyphen and finally a consecutive number.
- GK-1 for a consul in Styria
- CC, in white letters in a green field, followed by the canton abbreviation and two numbers, of which the second number identifies the sending country and the first number is a serial number for the vehicles of this country.
