Utah License Plates

The new "Life Elevated" Ski and Arch plates are now in use.

Chad Garner reports seeing a YKX series in the 2007 Arch, which is surprising since it appears Utah doesn't issue plates with X and K next to each other. He also happened to see a BXK plate, as well as a ZXK plate. He has confirmed that these series have been issued, but other XK and KX combinations have not. So, the AKX, AXK, and BKX series in the New Ski plate weren't issued, but CKX was issued. In the New Arch plate, the ZKX series was skipped. Utah began issuing plates with X and K next to each other most likely between June and August of 2010. The BK series skipped BKX, and that series was issued in about May of 2010. The ZX series was issued just a few months later, and this series did issue ZXK.

This is the new version of the Ski plate with the Life Elevated slogan. Ken Reager spotted the 6th plate of this series, A00 6AA.

From Chad Garner: Apparently Utah has stopped issuing plates with any "FC" or "FK" endings. Not sure why, unless it's not supposed to be issued because it looks like a bad word. Again, I'm not sure. They did issue AFC, AFK, BFC, BFK, ZFC, and ZFK. They did not issue YFC (though I'm SURE I've seen a YFC), YFK, CFC, or CFK. I'm assuming this to be the case because Salt Lake County was issued CFH, CFJ, and CFL--without being issued CFK. I was confused as to why they would skip CFK, but this makes sense now.

1986 Series

996 PMV
Report a new high History

Utah is no longer using county stickers. Tony Burdett reports that county stickers still appeared on the LXx series plates, but not on the LZx series. No LYx series have been seen yet. The screened CY designation on the plates for sticker location was dropped between MGN and MMY.

On the Arch plates, the XXx series had county stickers, but none of the Wxx series have them. May 2002 seems to have been the approximate time that county stickers ended.

It appears that 999 PMV was likely the last plate of this issue.

2007 Series - Delicate Arch

V21 5JA
Report a new high History

Each leading letter goes backwards, same as the original Arch plates, but the progression within the series is forward. Therefore, the first plate of the series was Z00 1AA, working forward to Z99 9ZZ, then the Y series followed starting at Y00 1AA, working forward to the current high.

Low: Z82-2AA

In God We Trust

Report a new high History

This was originally just another specialty plate on the generic base, with graphics and slogan applied with decals. As of January 2017 this is a no-fee option, with the design printed on the plate and with its own alphanumeric series. The no-fee series began with Z001A, ran up to Z999Z, and then rolled over to Y001A, and so on, with the first alpha progressing backwards. Of course, this could only go on so long before it threatened to collide with the generic specialty series, which was advancing up through the alphabet in the same format. Catastrophe was narrowly averted in April 2018 when, upon reacing N999Z, rather than going to M001A, this series rolled over to a brand-new 0A0AA format. This format progresses up through the alphabet, with no characters going backwards. We don't know what will happen after the generic specialty series hits M999Z, but we trust that God, or the DMV, has a master plan.

Specials

M104A
Report a new high History

All specials (antique, military, pets, wildlife, universities) share the same A000A format on this generic plate, so there is only one high for specials. The finished plates have a logo at the left and a slogan at the bottom. Handicapped and In God We Trust originally were part of this series, but both have since moved off to their own formats and series (shown elsewhere on this page). Prior to the A000A format, the original format was 0000A, with a high of 4285U. That format had to stop there, lest it collide with the still-valid 1996 Centennial Handicap series, which used the same format, with a descending alpha.
