New Diplomatic License Plates Launched

New Diplomatic License Plates Launched New Diplomatic License Plates Launched

Foreign embassy workers in Iran will have new license plates in the upcoming Iranian year (starting March 20). The new license plates are one of the remaining registration marks in Iran to change from the former American plate standards since the pre-Islamic Revolution times to European plates with the I.R. moniker and flag in the far left corner. The change in design, to be incorporated after the Iranian New Year holidays (March 20-April 2), will be used in all new cars, with existing cars having to change over the course of the next year. The new plates will be unique in that the letter “D” replaces Persian letters to designate their special status. Other plates for non-diplomatic missions will also be launched for the use of UN workers living in Iran with “S” placed in the center of the plate. Diplomatic missions in Tehran use their owner special “governmental” plates to differentiate them from public and other state license plates. Diplomats, however, are liable for speeding and parking fines unlike many countries.
