New Issue Of Personalised Number Plates To Be Launched
The Wisconsin Division of Motor Vehicles is expecting six-character license plates to run out soon.
That means seven-character plates will start being issued in mid April, the DMV said Thursday.
The new configuration will begin with three letters, then followed by four numbers; AAA-1001. The plate artwork will stay the same, according to the DMV.
"There’s been a lot of interest as we near the end of the alphabet and the license plate series,” Jeremy Krueger, supervisor at the License Plate Issuance Unit said. “All of the number combinations have been used, and we needed to find a large range of plate numbers to use into the future.”
Krueger calculated that the additional character will create 100 million combinations.
The six-character plates yielded about 20 million combinations since they debuted in 1986.
“This should last awhile,” he said.
The combination on the current design reversed from letters to numbers in 2000, the DMV said.
Local DMVs and third party vendors will continue to issue the six-character plates until they run out, the DOT said.

How close a series of letters or numbers are to a real name of word: if the match quality is high (and the numbers and letters are very convincing in making a popular word), the value of the registration plate will be higher. This means that a match like 5IMON, for the name Simon, will be worth a lot more than a more obscure set of letters and numbers that are not as convincing a match, such as S17 MMM for the name Sam.
The style of the plate: this means establishing if it is a new-style plate, an older-style format or if it is dateless or Irish, for instance. Other options are that it is a prefix-style plate or a suffix-style plate. New-style number plates, which have been produced since 2001, tend to be the least valuable because they are a bit less appealing to some collectors, plus the rule about not having plates that are newer than your car can also come into play, putting people off from buying a newer-style plate for their older car. Prefix-style number plates, which were in production between 1983 and 2001 can be more popular as more vehicles are entitled to have those licence numbers, and they may have fewer characters in total. Suffix-style plates, issued from 1963 to 1983 are relatively rare, which means they can attract higher prices than prefix-style plates and newer designs. Dateless number plates, also known as cherished number plates, were produced between 1903 and 1963 and are nearly always the most valuable number plate configurations; they have fewer digits and their dateless nature means that people can hide the age of their car. Irish number plates are similar to dateless number plates, especially because they don’t have a year identifier. They also tend to be cheaper than other types of vehicle registration plates.
