RENO, Nev. (AP) - The Department of Motor Vehicles is changing its license plate numbering scheme for the first time in more than three decades.

KTVN-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1FPtPb3) Division Administrator of Central Services Sean McDonald says the department simply ran out of the 12 million possibilities possible under the numbering system created in 1982.

Instead of starting with three numbers and ending with three letters, license plates will now carry two numbers, a letter, and three numbers.

This new system creates 34 million possible combinations that McDonald said should last a long time into the future.
