British Columbia Commercial Truck License Plates

Over a century of commercial truck license plates is a lot of information and photos, so what follows is a somewhat arbitrary categorization of the past 100 years into different categories based upon themes informed by the era the plates were issued, their design or something as mundane as the serial format appearing on the plates. This allows the story of the plates to be presented in a more manageable and, hopefully, interesting way. Enjoy!

An interesting aspect of the "Commercial Truck" plates is that the vast majority of vehicles that display this type of plate are not commercial. More often than not, they are private pick-up trucks used for personal use, emergency services vehicles such as municipal fire trucks, and public buses.
Commercial vehicles such as taxis, dump trucks and similar types also display these plates. Go figure ...
