The current base began in 1985. These plates were initially limited to five characters, in the formats of 1A234, 123A4, 1AB23 and 12AB3. The format expanded to six characters in the AAA 001 format in 1990.

From Skipper Horner: Through plate BNF 974, passenger, truck, municipal, agricultural and large trailer types started together at AAB 100 and continued normally until truck plates got their own series. The plates in this set are all unique and there are no duplicates as originally thought. Plate numbers have been duplicated between "passenger" and "truck" in a few different specialty types, mainly vanity and some older "all numeric" plates. Now, passenger and truck plates are issued "ahead" and back-filled, this is why we see larger gaps, on average about 8000 plates for pass. types and 6000 for trucks. Notice that the whole FK- series appears to have been skipped. Rare exceptions to "normal" plates: BMV ___on cars (and all BMW are T/R/K); T/R/A AEJ ___.

Vermont dropped the circle T lower right with the GCR series.

The GE- series might have been skipped. None have been reported yet.
