Maryland License PlatesMaryland uses neither I, O, Q, nor U on any plate, other than organizationals, personalized, and Amateur Radio. The only non-passenger type to have used one of these letters was Charter Bus (I00-001) which was merged into Class P in 1988. All are long gone.
A new standard issue plate debuted June 14, 2010. Originally planned to be a general replacement that would replace all plates except Bay and Ag between 07/10 and 06/12, it will now just be issued for new registrations for Class A, E, and M plates. All current plates will remain valid.
Motorcycle, Handicapped, and Handicapped Motorcycle have been added to the list of classes to receive War of 1812 plates starting June 14. ALL existing plates will remain valid indefinitely. The War of 1812 plate will cease issue in June 2015. The "crest" plates will return then as the standard issue.
