Vehicles throughout Western Australia may contain registration plates denoting the place of registration or be related to an organisation, shire or district. This is originally by the use of up to three letters followed by numbers. The colour scheme of the plates is governed by the model of plate or if a regional plate modied if the owner has re-ordered the number plate.

We’re on the look-out for any donated plates, we have zero in our collection

Western Australian General Format

In the late 1990’s WA Government moved to the current plate format, 1AAA-XXX. These are provided state wide and not tied to any regions. We’ve had a number of queries on the age of these plates as they’re released – See below a very rough timeline.

  • 1BFT – September 2002
  • 1DEG – 2009
  • 1GLG – July 2017
  • 1GTA – March 2019
  • 1FXX – Vanity Plate Purchase Only

Organisations and Charities

In the 1990s the State Government allowed the registration of registration plate series for organisations or charities. The general principal was the same as the Shire Councils/Districts allowing the organisation/charity to use the funding from the number plate purchases for their own commitments.

Town and Shire Councils

A new series of local Shire plates was launched in 1993 and are designed to promote local pride and enable the generation of revenue for certain community projects in a particular area. The plates have one to ve numeric characters on the left hand side followed by the multi-colour local authority logo and one to three local authority identifying alpha characters on the right hand side with an optional slogan across the bottom. The number of numeric characters depends on the number of local authority alpha characters with the total number of characters being six.
