MADISON – The state Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) anticipates the supply of regular Wisconsin license plates with six characters (123-ABC) will run out at the central office soon and new vehicle license plates with seven characters will be issued beginning before the end of April.

Local DMV offices and third party vendors will continue to issue the six-character plates until their inventory is exhausted.

The combination on the current design reversed from letters to numbers (WRZ-999 to 123-ABC) in 2000. The new configuration will return three letters beginning with AAA- then followed by four numbers (AAA-1001). The plate artwork will stay the same.
