They are just a running series of number. Anyway, plates can be transferred so just take it as a "general guide" and not a definitive guide to year of registration.

for eg. a very old bike like the rxs 115cc like mine is FBB plated cos the original no. plate was kept by the previous owner.n FBB plates first came out in 2006,correct me if im wrong

Basic and rough guide:
FBA - Registration in 2006
FBB - Registration in 2007
FBC - Registration in 2008
FBD/E - Registration in 2009

There are also cases when you see a bike with a registration plate initial FBE but registered in 2002. This is probably due to the ex-owner retained the original plate no. and got a new plate no. for the current owner. (like what bro welly has mentioned)

To get the actual year of registration, you can check it at onemotoring.com.sg

True bro, vintage numbers used to be for example SAA, SAB at the front but lta takes the letter S out and bcame AA, AB plates.
