License plates of the Pangavian People's Democratic Republic are mandatory vehicle registration plates displaying the registration mark (ger. Kennzeichen) of motor vehicles issued by the People's Commissariat for Transportation. They are used to verify street legality and to identify and recognize the vehicle.

Appearance

All license plates have a compartment on the left side of the plate, making out about 1/6 of its total width. This compartment usually shows categorical information, such as CC/CD designations or military designations. In regular plates, the compartment is filled with maroon red, bearing the Pangavian flag at the top and the lettering PVR in white at the bottom.
