Finland’s license plates since 1972 have a size of 442×118 millimeters, with black characters on a white background divided into two groups, the first consisting of letters, and the second by numbers (eg: AAA 001). Since 2001, the eurobanda is optionally used with the country code, “FIN”. These license plates do not have any regional code. In addition, the square matrices with American format, usually begin with RRJ, RRH, RRK, OYY, OYZ … There are personalized license plates, composed of at least one letter and one number. Since 1989, there have been no regional differences in enrollments, with the exception of Åland Island , which has its own numbering system.


The international vehicle code of Finland since 1993 is that of FIN (Finland – Finland). Prior to this date, the international code to identify Finland was that of SF Suomi-Finland. Before the entry of the European Union, like every country of the Union, it was necessary to carry the oval code .

Old license plates

The registrations of Finland from 1950 to 1972, had a configuration of characters similar to the current one, but in white on a black background, having at the end of this period, a white line that formed the perimeter of the plate. These plates were composed of two or three letters followed by a script and finally a series of numbers. The first of the letters identifies the region from which the vehicle comes. From 1922 to 1929, the license plates had black characters on a white background, in which the first letter identified the region. From 1922 to 1972, the license plates had a regional code, which can be seen in the table below.
