There are millions of possible plate combinations, but after decades on the road we have used them all up. Another milestone, Queensland's millionth personalised plate sold July 2020 and now the next generation of Queensland licence plates are upon us. 16million combinations will take us through for another 25years. A reflective (hologram) stamp of “QLD” being hard to reproduce is now applied for police to spot a fake number plate. It will be the first change in 2 decades. Queensland number plates were first introduced in 1921. The classic Q plates featured a bold black Q, with white numerals and a black background. The black and white plates were simple, striking and most importantly – standardised.
