The High RoadJohn Northup (#3547) and Kit Sage (#1689)

Shown here are the highest license plate numbers observed, contributed by hobbyists who research and collect license plates from around North America and beyond. The High Road is featured in each issue of PLATES Magazine.

Notes

Delaware, Indiana and Rhode Island issue numbers randomly or recycle old numbers continually, resulting in non-sequential issuance; therefore, no progressive “high.”

Alabama, Hawaii, Idaho, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming issue plates by a county code system, so the most populous county's high is shown.

Massachusetts, Missouri and West Virginia issue plates by a month code system, so the latest month of the year issued is shown, usually December.
