Idaho License Plates

The original design of the current base began in 1991, but it has been revised since then, and it is also now flat. While there has not been a general reissue since 1991, Idaho has imposed a mandatory 7 year rolling replacement, so none of the original embossed plates of this design are still in use. Flat plates came into use in early 2008.

County system. Larger counties are on letter series. Flat plates are now appearing in regular passenger series. Registration characters on the new flat plates are now black instead of the original blue used on embossed plates.

Note: The county prefix is 2 followed by the letter O, not 0 (zero), for Owyhee County.

A possible error in the Owyhee Co. plates is showing up. 2O 4A217 has been spotted. It appears that toward the end of the 40000 block, the letter A was inserted into the second position. More than one plate of this type has been seen. No other counties have had odd jumps like this, so it appears to be a manufacturing error.

After DZ 999, the series continued with DAA01.

Don Hanson says it looks like they might be going to just using the prefix DV then letter, number, number. He has seen DV F12 and DV G52.

There have been some inconsistencies with this plate type. Don reports that two different kinds of sequence lately: letter, letter, letter, space, number, number and letter, letter space, letter, number, number.

DAE27 was seen in that configuration, but DA G24 was seen in that configuration.

All colleges use this sequence that ends with S.

It appears that with the high amount of collegiate plates in circulation, the 9 at the beginning is a constant to avoid clashes with other types, the 9BnnS series seems to have been skipped to avoid a clash with county 9B (Boundary). Also the progression seems to be in the format 9lnnS, 9lnlS, 9llnS, 9lllS. Example 9A01S-9A99S, 9A1AS-9A9ZS, 9AA1S-9AA9S-9AAAS-9AAZS, 9AB1S-9ABZS, etc. then 9C11S...
