What Does FP mean on a license plate?
FP on license plate means “fleet plate.” US states such as Illinois or Oregon offer fleet plates. Usually, fleet plates can get motor vehicles owned or leased by a business, government agency, or other organization rather than individual or family. For example, feet plate can get car rental companies, public utilities, public bus companies, taxicab companies, and police departments. Many businesses purchase or lease fleet vehicles to deliver goods to customers or sales representatives to travel to clients.
In some countries, a grey fleet is a title given to personal vehicles used for business purposes. Usually, employee-owned vehicles that have a grey fleet are being regularly used for business travel.
Fleet vehicles can be managed by a fleet manager or transport manager using fleet management software. Vehicles may be connected to a fleet telematics system by way of a Fleet Management System or FMS.
In the US, you can make applications for fleet plates.
