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.

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.

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

All Specials (including Antique, Handicap, Military, Pets, Wildlife, Universities) use the same A123A sequential format on the new "Life Elevated" plate, so there is only one high for Specials.

The original format on the former base was 1234A with a high of 4285U.
