BRUSSELS — Transport Minister Renaat Landuyt has decided that Belgium's new car number plates will be made up of three numbers followed by three letters.

The new number plates will thus be the reverse of those currently in circulation, newspapers 'Het Laatste Nieuws' and 'La Dernière Heure' reported on Monday.

The first number plates with the new combination will start appearing on vehicles from 1 August 2008.
 
It is estimated that by that time, all of the combinations using three letters followed by three figures will have been exhausted.

The size of the new number plates will be the same as the existing ones.

Minister Landuyt said a uniform EU number plate will be introduced when European consensus is reached.
