The Ministry of Public Security has recently issued Circular 58/2020/TT-BCA, which outlines the procedures for granting and revoking registration and license plates for road motor vehicles. One notable provision in the circular pertains to the resizing of license plates for cars and transport business vehicles that utilize yellow background plates with black letters. These regulations will come into effect on August 1.
New license plate size
Under the recently implemented regulations outlined in Circular 58, automobiles will be equipped with two license plates of shorter dimensions, measuring 165mm in height and 330mm in length.
Specialized vehicles authorized by the authorities will be required to have either two long license plates measuring 110mm in height and 520mm in length or one short license plate and one long license plate. The car owner will be responsible for covering the additional expenses, with the cost of applying for a new license plate amounting to 150,000 VND.
New license plate colors
Circular 58, Article 11 states that vehicles used for transport business purposes, which have white license plates, will have the permission to renew or obtain new vehicle registration certificates. This also includes the option to change or reissue vehicle license plates.
Furthermore, vehicles operated by transport businesses will be assigned license plates with a yellow-orange background and black letters and numbers. These license plates will include one of the 20 letters provided: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, K, L, M, N, P, S, T, U, V, X, Y, or Z.
Modifying the license plate to increase its size and paint it in an orange-yellow color will enhance the manageability of the plate for authorities and security camera surveillance systems.
When it comes to vehicles with license plates, drivers are only required to complete the declaration form and are not obligated to provide the chassis or engine number. Within a period of 7 days, the Local Traffic Police Departments will distribute license plates with new colors to the drivers.
