In South Africa, the “KZN” on a number plate stands for KwaZulu-Natal, which is a province located in the southeastern part of the country. KwaZulu-Natal is known for its beautiful coastline, diverse wildlife, and rich Zulu culture.
As mentioned, South African number plates are alphanumeric and use a combination of letters and numbers to identify the province, city, and vehicle registration. Each province has its own unique two-letter code, which appears at the beginning of the number plate. In the case of KwaZulu-Natal, the “KZN” code is used to identify vehicles registered in the province.
Number plates in South Africa are issued by the Department of Transport and are required for all registered vehicles. They serve as a means of identification and help law enforcement agencies to track down stolen vehicles, enforce traffic laws, and maintain road safety.
