What is this plate?

Any car nerds want to fill us in on what this number plate is or does?

It was spotted on Canberra Avenue just near the Bus Depot Markets.

Colour of a diplomatic plate but with no DC. Car’s surely too dirty to be some sort of dealer plate…

Anyone?

UPDATE: A very reliable source informs me that this plate is definitely a Western Australian one despite the lack of any State markings. Sandgroper exceptionalism at work again.

What’s Your opinion?

(B) a numberplate for a motor vehicle which is registered in the name:

(i) of the Government of an overseas country, or of an international
organisation, being a vehicle used for the purpose of a diplomatic
mission;

(ii) of a diplomatic agent or a person (not being a person who is an
Australian citizen or who is a permanent resident of Australia) who is a
member of the family of a diplomatic agent forming part of his or her
household; or

(iii) of a member of the administrative and technical staff of a diplomatic
mission or a person (not being a person who is an Australian citizen or
who is a permanent resident of Australia) who is a member of the family
of such a person forming part of his or her household;

shall be formed of metal plate bearing a black legend on a blue reflective
background;

Saw one of these today (yeah I know, I’m 9 months behind). I don’t think it is a WA plate. The car looked brand new and was from a local dealer. I’m with the International Org. Or does IO mean they’ve taken out a loan?

More likely to the the WA plates mentioned above. The DC/DX plates have ACT on them from memory. Why you would want the hideous colour like that anyway I don’t know. They really need to do an update of the ACT plates though and offer more variations, like the european plates offered in VIC/NSW/QLD, and scrap the Centenary plates until 2012/2013, I fail to see the point of them for the next 5 years!
