Diplomatic Number Plates
Diplomatic / Embassy Special Vanity Number Plates  Diplomatic, Embassy & International Organisation Number Plate Codes

Parking for Diplomatic Cars Only. RED ROUTE - No Stopping at any time Except diplomatic cars Diplomatic Car Parking.

The following is a list of special marks allocated to Diplomatic Embassy Heads in the UK.

These special Diplomatic Registrations have been taken from the normal series of marks, some of which are reinstated void marks from years earlier. Others outside of the normal sequence of issue, have used letters not normally issued in the UK registration system, and so contain I, Q or Z within them.

NZ1 was the first mark issued to the New Zealand High Commissioner in 1949.

Most of the marks issued contain the number one. A few of the number plates, spell out the country in full, e.g. SPA1N (SPAIN) and FIJ1 (FIJI). Malaysia has gained the very special 1M registration.

All of these registrations have to stay with the diplomatic embassies to which they have been issued.

Some countries have missed out on what would be the best combination for them, as the better combinations have been issued in the normal series of marks and are still in use. e.g. Benin had to make do with RPB1 rather than the much more appropriate BEN1N (BENIN) registration.

One Diplomatic Registration that does not conform to any of the normal UK series is(/was) (the rumored) EUR01 as this has a number beginning with a zero.

It is possible that Diplomatic Number Plates with preceding zero(s) may become the norm though, as the first sighting of REC001 (Royal Embassy of Cambodia) in 2016 seems to confirm!

There are also a few registrations out there that can easily be mistaken for diplomatic issues, such as D1PLO (DIPLO), PER51A (PERSIA), and RUS51A (RUSSIA). All of these are in fact DVLA personalised registrations issues, yet they look just as convincing!
