Current format Vehicle number plates in Great Britain are black on white at the front, and black on yellow at the back.
They current consist of two letters to signify the licencing area, followed by two numbers to indicate the year of registration, followed by three random letters.
The year changes twice per calendar year, with half of the year being the last two digits of the calendar year, and the other half of the year being the last two digits of the calendar year + 50; consequently in 2011 the numbers 11 and 61 were used.
Northern Ireland uses a different system.
