Vehicle registration plates of Bolivia
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (March 2012)|
Bolivia requires its residents to register their motor vehicles and display vehicle registration plates. Older plate serials consisted of three numbers followed by three letters (A to Z, except O and Q), while current plate serials consist of four numbers followed by three letters. At the top of the plate, "BOLIVIA" is spelled out. At top left, the Bolivian flag may be present, and at top right, a letter denoting the department in which the car is registered, according to the ISO 3166-2:BO code, is displayed on either a metal tab on older plates or a sticker on newer plates.
Serial digits progress sequentially from right to left, with the 000 AAA format followed by the 1000AAA format and currently the 2000AAA format.
For all types of plates, the motorcycle version uses the same serial format and colors but with a smaller overall plate size.
The first and second sets of replacement plates in the case of theft or loss of the previous set of plates feature the same serial but with a small1 or 2, respectively, added between the numbers and letters.
Commercial and for-hire vehicles often have the plate number painted on either side of the vehicle as well.
