Passenger Plates
1992 - 1999
1992November - December
AAA1000 - AAR9999
Fully reflectorized graphic plates were issued for the first time in November 1992.

These plates have 7 digits, in AAA0000 format, and the little New Jersey separator is gone.
The letters O and I are no longer used on standard passenger plates from this point forward (Q was never used).

A short while after the release of the 7-digit plates, they were discontinued because of "poor readability". Huh ?
(Block letters, 3-alpha, 4-numeric, how simple can ya get ????)

The last 7-digit passenger plate issued was ADJ9999.


Vanity: ADK1000

If the 7-digit series would have continued, this plate would have been issued next.

A variation on a theme.
Or an accident at the plate shop.   Whichever.

A new series starting at BA-100A was issued in May 1993.
(The 7-digit series was still issued as plates were used up, and ended at ADJ9999 in July 1993.)
