Vehicle registration plates of Botswana for normal motor vehicles begin with the letter B, followed by three numbers, followed by three letters. The digits and letters are assigned by a registrar. The three letters will never include the letter Q in order to avoid confusion with the letter O. The front number plates have black lettering on a white reflective background. The rear number plates have black lettering on a yellow reflective background. Public passenger number plates have blue lettering on a white reflective background in the front and white lettering on blue background at the rear.

Government vehicles all have the prefix "BX", except defense force vehicles which have the prefix "BDF". The front "BX" number plates have red lettering on a white reflective background. The rear "BX" number plates have white lettering on a red reflective background. The "BDF" number plates have white letters on a green non-reflective background for the front plate and black letters on a green non-reflective background for the rear plate.

Diplomatic vehicles' number plates starts with two digits, two letters (CD, CC or CT) and another three digits. These digits are allocated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs.[1]
