When driving around Europe I love to check out plates to see how far away from home cars are, I find it really fascinating. The ones that give the regions too are even better. Luckily Romanian plates are really easy to identify.

So, if, like me, you tend to look at number plates when you see cars then you might be interested to know what the regional sections of the Romanian number plate refer to. It’s also a good way to learn more about the regions of Romania!

The regional section of the number plate is the first two letters (or just the first one for Bucharest). There are exceptions (such as diplomatic or temporary plates) but the majority follow this format.

The example above shows a plate from the region of Bistrița-Năsăud.
