NUMBER BLOCKS   2016 SERIES
← 2013 SERIES
NUMBER BLOCKS INDEX
The 2012 standard, which introduced extra letters, was updated and refined in 2016.
Some of the allocations which were incorrect in 2013 have been corrected, some have not.
A few types which did not inherit the extra letter in 2012 have changed to include it now.

And.... Distrito Federal has been renamed to 'Ciudad de Mexico' in all of the tables.
(All CDMX plate numbers continue from the DF allocations.)

Most of the patterns in use between 2002 and 2016 are still being issued - not all states have moved on to the newer numbering yet.
Some states are using the new numbering for some types of plates and the old numbering for other types, to make it even more confusing.

The information comes from the document 'Diario Oficial' published by the government of Mexico.
This is a link to the section of the 24 June 2016 issue which contains the license plate specifications.

The numbering patterns in the state-by-state allocations list for Commercial Bus and Commercial Trailer have been clarified (and corrected in the 2013 blocks as well).

It appears that one letter is "fixed", one moves from A to Z, and the numbers move only within the allocated blocks.
For QR, for example, the allocation for commercial buses is A-72000-T through Z-82999-T.   So the first letter can be between A and Z and the numbers will only be between 72000 and 82999.
For commercial trailers in QR, the allocation for buses is 85000-TA through 95999-TZ.   Which means the last letter can be between A and Z and the numbers will only be between 85000 and 95999.

This is really bizarre, at best (if I've gotten it right).

Dealer plates have another new numbering - the double letter (AA, etc) is the anchor. For sequencing, treat 1-AB-23C like ABC-123.
The numbers move first (123, 124, 125, etc) and then the letters move when 999 is reached (ABC-999, ABD-101). So on the actual plate, that would read: 9-AB-99C to 1-AB-01D.

Handicapped plates using the 00-AAA series appeared as early as 2013 - so apparently these allocations were for 2013 as well.

   
Most states use the AA-0A pattern for antique auto plates, but a few use an extra dash like AA-0-A.
The 1AA-11 pattern for antique autos has been seen in several states by late 2016.
This time they got the motorcycle blocks a little bit closer to what they really seem to be.
Several series (AAA1A, A1AAA) are missing from the 2016 document, and the A11AA series is still partially incorrect,
but the newer A1AA1 series seems to match the observed numbers from the last 3 years.

I have listed the blocks from the document (some of which are incorrect), as well as observed series here.
If I know the ranges listed in the document to be incorrect, they will be denoted like this.

Starting in 2017, several states are starting to issue larger cycle plates - instead of the former size of 150x100mm, the new ones are 215x134mm.
That's enough room to fit 7 characters now.
The specifications for these big cycle plates appreared in both the 2013 and 2016 official documents - but this new size was not seen until 2017.

This explains the 6-digit serials in the allocation blocks for dealers - they were meant to be used on the bigger plates.

The new bigger cycle plates seem to be using different number blocks than the previous smaller plates - so here is a new table for the big plates.

Dealer allocations are still in the "impossible" range.   As before, 6 characters do not fit on a cycle plate.
(This changed as of 2017 with the appearance of bigger motorcycle plates - now up to 7 characters can fit !)

There is a new series this year for commercial motorcycles - AA1AA.
(This overlaps with the one documented DF police motorcycle plate - DF8JV - see the picture below.)

The prefixes for police plates have been changed to eliminate the use of I, O, and Q.
The motorcycle range has been corrected since the 2013 document, but plates with the DF1AA pattern have been seen. The 3rd letter may indicate the department.

For Ambulance (AM) and Firefighter (BM) plates, the first two letters are always AM or BM, and they share the same serial numbers for each state.
For the Civil Defense plates, the first two digits are always a numeric code, almost corresponding with the state number, but varying in the C/CH states due to the alphabetical order changes.
