German European License Plate Meanings & Style Descriptions


The current form of German European license plates have been in use since 1994. Most license plates for countries in the European Union have a blue strip on the left side of the plate. This strip has the country code in white - for Germany it is a "D" for Deutschland. Above the country code is the Flag of Europe with is the 12 golden stars in a circle.
FE-style Pre-1994 Style
(FE-style)1994 & later format of German License Plates (DIN-style) Pre-1994 Format. These are no longer issued but some are still in use.

After the blue decal, the 2 - 3 letter combo on the plate represents the region or city that the car was registered. For example, B for is for Berlin. The number of letters in the prefix code generally reflects the district size. The larger districts have short one letter codes and more numerical digist after. The larger cities are as follows: B=Berlin, M=Munich, K=Cologne (Köln), F=Frankfurt, L=Leipzig, S=Stuttgart. There are many exceptions to these general license plate rules based on location, size of the disctrict and population density. On authentic German license plates the total number of letters and numbers is never higher than eight. German car owners are able to choose customized license plates as long as the plate is unique and the numbers and letters a re not a prohibited combonation. Germany includes diacritical marks (Ä, Ö and Ü) in the letters of some codes, this is unique to Germany and not done in other EU countries. We are proud to offer the authentic typeface on our plates - FE-Schrift ("fälschungserschwerende Schrift", tamper-hindering script).


Special Issued German License Plates Meanings


Classic Cars are also known as Oldtimer cars in Germany. These are designated by placing an H (Historisch) at the end of the plate. To quality for an H-plate the car must be at leat 30 years old and in well maintained original condition.

Emission, safety test and registration sticker for German License plates

Stickers for emission tests are adhered to the front license plate and vehicle safety test stickers are attached to the rear plate. In the center of the sticker the number is the year that the test is expired. The month is designated by black markings. Starting in 2010 emission test stickers are no longer used as the safety test stickers cover both. The other sticker is the official seal of registration, which has the seal of the German state/district of issue.
