i think i got the answer in full

but i dont know how to word it

cos i cant find any where describing
describing it
but i found the actual plate number on some site
 Quoting: Dr. Acula


It should be a series of letters and numbers. You should find two sets next to each other, the second one in parentheses. The first set has 5 digits, the second set has 4. One is an indicator of the plate's region, the other is the specific plate. Just copy and paste the whole thing.

There's also a slim chance you found a source of info that only gives one of those two sets, if so just post whatever it gave you.
