NORTH DAKOTA

This is the North Dakota Current Standard license plate design:

I was unable to find the current version of the trailer plate anywhere. If someone is able to locate it, I'd really love to have the photo.

It begins with HP and is followed by the unit number.

There are many different versions of municipal plates, they tend to be a color gradient moving to white at the top, with the location of registration on the top and the type of organization along the bottom. The serial format varies wildly. These should be found specifically on a case-by-case basis:
