Here is an Explanation of the Kenyan Civilian Number Plate Format and What Each Letter stands for

The number of vehicles on the Kenyan roads has increased significantly. Similarly, the number of rich Kenyans is on the rise. A key lead to the high number of vehicles is the production of affordable vehicles from foreign countries. Currently, there are over 2.5 million cars on Kenyan roads. Let us have a brief explanation of the meaning of each letter on the number plate.

The current format on the Kenyan number plates is on a white plate with black lettering or a yellow plate with black lettering. The format is usually LLL NNNL where 'L' denotes a letter while 'N' denotes a digit.

The first K on the number plate indicates the Republic of Kenya. The next letter denotes the current generation of the number plates. We are currently in the fifth generation. The numbers that follow are the regulation numbers that help to know how many number plates have been issued so far in that generation and the exact identity of the vehicle.
