Standard License Plates of Transnistria are 520 mm wide and 112 mm high, made of metal with 7 embossed characters - one letter, three numbers and two more letters - written using the DIN 1451 Mittelschrift font. On the left part of the plates there also a modified euroband with white background, having the flag of the PMR instead of the EU symbol and a holographic sticker in the place of the international country code underneath it. Government plates are only composed three numbers and two letters. Only symbols that are common to both the Cyrillic and the Latin alphabets are used with their Cyrillic meaning (A, B, C, E, H, K, M, P, T, X, Y).

There is ongoing debate between the Moldovan authorities and the government of Transnistria on a design to be used on Transnistrian plates that is acceptable for Moldova also. Moldovan authorities have been reported to confiscate Transnistrian plates as the registration of vehicles in the Transnistrian region is illegal for Moldovans.[1] Vehicle registration plates of Transnistria are valid only in Abkhazia, Belarus, Russia, South Ossetia, and Ukraine. Although they may be permissible in other jurisdictions, this information is not known.
