Interior ministry’s service centers issue both standard, elongated vehicle registration plates, used by the majority of Ukrainian drivers, and so-called American. rectangular-shaped plates for vehicles where those are not placed in an ordinary way.

Such plates cost UAH 300 ($8.13) for cars and UAH 150 ($4.06) for motor vehicles. They are always available at service centers of the interior ministry of Ukraine; for particular regions, this could be checked online.

"Among such vehicle registration plates are also paid ones that contain a certain combination of numbers," the main service center of Ukraine’s interior ministry said, adding that their availability could be checked online as well.
