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…


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?

Its an ACT “International Organisation” plate. Used for registration of a “vehicle of members of personnel of a permanent mission or an international organisation”

Ahh.. So that’s where all the World Vision money goes…

Should have jumped out and gotten a look at his rego sticker.

Suspect it may be NZ.

Wouldn’t NZ plates all start with BAA?

Woody MC: I think the prohibition on II, IO, OI, and OO is because automatic number plate recognition systems can mix them up with ones and zeroes.

In a stunning display of foresight and cleverness, the Secret Squirrels have mandated that their fleet be registered under feindishly obscure license plate numbers.

The secret acronym? Intelligence Officer.

I’m sure David Koresh from the Branch Davidians has the same style number plate. Was the car driving into a compound?

They’re from the volcanic Jovian moon of Io. It says so on the plate.
I welcome our new alien overlords.

In Victoria, you can’t purchase a plate starting with II, IO, OO, OI or CC so it seems to be something official-like. There’s mention of CC plates in the guidelines for diplomatic / consular plates (something to do with using a diplomatic car outside the ACT, I think). International Official? I dunno.

Perhaps its a personalised version of that type of plate? Seems strange that it doesn’t have the letters of the state on it. Good luck trying to fine them for a camera infringment!! If you find out where they are from can you let me know – I might buy a set!!

A worthy effort Hamilton, but those plates have three letters before the break and a big WA on the plate.

So it’s not this one.

I’ve seen plates like this before from Western Australia
