Belize License Plates

Since 2010 - 2011

Belize License Plates

In general, all private/passenger plates are the original 1971 series, i.e. the letter "C" and a serial number, with several design (layout) changes over the years. Not all changes occurred at the same time in all districts.
1973 plates had no district code.
In 1981, wide dyes and a four digit registration was used.
In 1989, dyes became narrower and the registration was expanded to five digits (with leading zeroes).
Since around 2009, plates are made of flat plexiglass or plastic with an official seal.
In the 2010 - 2011 time frame, colorful plates appeared, often with a logo. The series, however, is still the original letter "C" plus serial number registration from the early 1970's.
Please note that many exceptions exist to the generalization described above.
