Montana License Plates

The new Montana base is now being issued. Trucks now use the same plates as passenger.

County allocation system - On the current base, the letter A is used in the last position. Upon reaching 9999A, the series advances to B in the last position.

In an unusual move, Montana is now allowing registrants to get new plates on several previous base designs. Those designs include the 1991, 2000, and 2006 standard issues, as well as the 1989 Centennial. Numbering on the standard bases will conform to the current 2010 issue as noted above, but numbering on the 1989 Centennial will conform the the ABC123 format currently in use for Specials.

Motorcycle plates are no longer county coded. They are now appearing in the generic ABC123 format.

Specialty Plates

Optional Issues

CMM626
Report a new high History

Peter Cohen has confirmed that all Montana special issues are sequentially numbered at the time of manufacture, so there is no pattern for a certain block of letters/numbers conforming to any given type. Lewis & Clark plates were the first of the optional issues and numbering began at AAA-001. Lewis & Clark plates are being used on some state-owned vehicles, such as Highway Patrol with the MHP prefix, and Commercial Motor Vehicle Inspector with the MVI prefix. John Northup reports MHP plates are now being made on the Montana Meth Project specialty design.

Starting with the ALZ series, there is no longer a hyphen between the letters and numbers, but there is still a space.

The series jumped from the ANx series to ARx in March 2011, so the APx series appears to have been skipped.

Now the series also jumped from the ARx series to the AXx series. AXx series low is AXE697.
