Uruguay


Last update: 27 Apr 2020
In general:
Because of the vast variety of Uruguay number plates I only show here the Montevideo issues. See all others: List of Departments
Normally the underneath list  is sorted by date and than car, motorcycle and the other types. From 1992 it is sorted within the date by plate number.
