License plate (Poland)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Polish license plates in the design used since May 2006
Two-line version since May 2006

The last valid Polish license plates have black letters and a black border on a white background. The first letter stands for the voivodship (in the picture example S for the voivodeship Silesia ), the next one or two letters stand for the city or the district (in the picture example G for the city ​​of Gliwice ) of the exhibition. This is followed by a rectangular certification sticker and, for one-line signs, a combination of four or five, for two-line signs, four letters and numbers.

All license plates issued since May 2, 2006 show the twelve stars of the European flag and the letters PL in a blue bar on the left. From 2000 to May 1, 2006, the signs were marked with the flag of Poland instead of the European symbol .

A license plate of your choice can be requested in Poland for a fee of around 240 euros . During the production period of around three weeks, the vehicle is given a temporary license plate. The first letter of the desired license plate stands for the voivodeship, followed by a serial number (0 to 9) and three to five desired letters, e.g. B. , whereby at most the last two can be replaced by digits, e.g. B. , , , , , .
