Find the Meanings of CD, GP, FS, PS etc. on Car’s Number Plates (Contd.)

Thank you, guys, for the interest in the first article (find attached below) which highlighted the meanings behind AS, CR, GT etc.

By popular request, readers requested more information about the following number plates. I promised to deliver today and this is me delivering.

If you’re a Ghanaian living in Ghana, you may have perhaps seen a zillion cars with unique identification number plates. But have you wondered what they mean? Or figure out the genesis/history behind every single letter that precedes the numbers followed by the year of registration?

Basically, these numbers: GT, CR, AS and the rest indicate the region in the car was registered. Also, note that Ghana has no restrictions on the use of number plates in the various regions, for example, a vehicle registered in the Ashanti Region can be used in the Brong-Ahafo Region. And that’s fine.

But there are some number plates that have totally unique numbers and plates. Those include the GP, GA, FS, PS and CD. These number plates are not for civilians but government officials and/or diplomats. below are their expansions:

GP – Ghana Police

GA – Ghana Armed Forced

FS – Fire Service

PS – Ghana Prison Service

CD – (in French ‘Corps Diplomatique’) Diplomatic Corps

GV - Government Vehicle

Note that DV & DP with red numbers are for unregistered vehicles.
