Here is the list of JPJ's Latest Number Plate (Last Updated 22 February 2024, 2:00 PM)
Have you ever imagined our cars without the JPJ number plate? Going to the shopping mall would probably be a nightmare! But what’s the significance of those alphabets and numbers? Even though it may appear like a random set of alphabet and numbers, the initial alphabet in the JPJ number plate represents states in Malaysia. The JPJ number plates are used to distinguish between different cars and also for JPJ car registration in Malaysia. Each vehicle will get a unique JPJ car plate to make it distinct. The JPJ number plate which is also known as the vehicle registration plate is provided by the government authority which is called the Malaysian Road Transport Department ( Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan).
Did you know that there are different categories of JPJ no plat? One of them is the JPJ running number. Are you wondering why it is called a “running number”?
Because it’s the only number that runs away from the police! Haha, just kidding.
The truth is that running no JPJ or JPJ number plate is a number sequence assigned to vehicles when it is registered to the Malaysian Road Transport Department (Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan or JPJ). Yeah, it is just the normal JPJ number plate that people automatically get when they buy a vehicle.

Are you interested in having a special JPJ car plate for your vehicle? Do you want your vehicle to have your name on the car plate such as WAN XXXX? Well, it depends on the JPJ number categories above. You can either join the auction or purchase it through JPJ or any authorized agent. As these numbers are special, they are very high in demand. Some would say that the special numbers are a symbol of status or a method to customize the vehicle’s JPJ number plate.
What is the prefix in the JPJ car plate number? It’s the first alphabet that you see in this image. As mentioned before, this letter represents a state in Malaysia. For example W = Kuala Lumpur, A = Perak, and B = Selangor. But now, the JPJ wilayah running number prefix has changed to V due to running out of its sequence. As for the two letters beside it, they follow an alphabetical sequence. For example ABC, the next series will be ABD, ABE, ABF and it goes on until the latest JPJ No plate.
BUT WHY DOES THE JPJ NUMBER PLATE HAVE NO I, O, and Z??? The reason is to avoid it being confused with visually similar numbers like below.
I = 1
O = 0
Z = 2
Now can you see what I mean?
So, let's say you want a running no JPJ which has passed, can you get it? Sad to say this, but it’s not possible. You can only choose from the current series or wait for the new ones to be released. Unless the pass series was not registered, then you can buy them from any authorized agents which have them such as OENumber.
