These plates are issued to vehicles used by disabled persons.
This type started in 1976, right after the Polyvend plates stopped production. For a little while, small decals with the ISA wheelchair logo were placed in the lower corner of the plate.
These were first issued with an -HP suffix. (Note that plates with an HP- prefix are NOT handicapped plates!). Around 1983 or 1984, a new design was started with a 100-A& format. These continued in this format until the general reissue in 2000, working their way through various alpha suffixes. With the new light blue plates, 4 digits were introduced in the -Z series. After reaching 9999-Z, they went back to the -Y series, but this time with 4 numbers instead of the previously used 3.
Handicapped Combination plates are also issued. First they were in the -C series, then -R, then -S, and now -T.
Finally, handicapped Motorcycle plates are issued as well – with 3 numbers followed by an -M& suffix. Once 999-M& was reached, the series went to 100-N&.
Mid-1980s used until the general reissue.
Originally issued 1987/1988
ca. 1990s vanity.
Vanities are not too common
ca. late 1980s Handicapped Motorcycle. These plates are very uncommon, so a sample will have to do. Actually, I think the sample plate is even harder to find than the real thing.
These are a few of these in a 100-A& format, the one above seems to be a more uncommon variety.
Another one, with two digits.
