Why Letter 'I' and 'O' Are Not Used In Number Plates

News Hub Creator 1d

Number plates are normally produced in sequence and in bulk via an automated process by registrar of motor vehicles in Kenya. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

Vehicles are always registered basing on department they fall in either, civilian, G.K, parastatals, city/city council and UN bodies.

The most commonly used plate however is the white and black lettering of format LLL NNNL where 'L' Denotes a letter and 'N' denotes a number. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

However among all these plates letter 'I' and 'O' has never been featured. Letter i has always been kept out in numbering becouse of its similarities with other digits, it resembles 1 and can also be easily modified to form another letter like J. 'O' is also not considered becouse of similarities with zero (0).

Some plates are personalised and these plates are allowed to have letters i and o, but in cases where the two letters confusing, the Transport Agency has the ability to decline to issue that combination. For example 0010OI1. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

The registration system in Kenya is currently at KDA. Those registered to National government use initials GK while those registered under County government use initials CG. For example Uasin gishu county number 26 will have its plates 26 CG followed by the department and rank.
