Hungary will add another letter to its number plates from July 1, 2022, as its fleet of motor vehicles grows, state secretary Tamás Schanda said on Wednesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Schanda said the current character set of three letters plus three numbers could ensure combinations for new number plates "for just a few more years". He added that older vehicles would not be required to switch number plates and there would be "no additional administration" for vehicle owners or fleet operators.
The new number plates will start with either two consonants or two vowels from the Latin alphabet, followed by two more letters, then three numbers.
There were close to 3,921,000 passenger cars registered in Hungary at the end of last year, up from 2,984,000 a decade earlier.
