Privately owned vehicles

From 1912 to 2001 Gibraltar number plates consisted of the letter "G" "(for Gibraltar)" followed by a series of digits issued in numerical order. [ [http://www.olavsplates.com/gibraltar_slow.html Registration plates of Gibraltar, GBZ.] ] The maximum number of digits was five, so the first registration plate would have been "G 1" and the last was "G 99999". A new system was introduced in 2002, in anticipation of running out of registration numbers once reaching "G 99999". The new system consists of the letter "G" followed by four digits "(1000-9999)" and another letter. The last letter represents the series. For example, series A consists of all registration plates from "G 1000 A" to "G 9999 A". The next series is B, and so on. As of 2008, registration plates in Gibraltar are in series C. The European flag is also now featured, along with Gibraltar's international vehicle registration GBZ.
