Weight Distance

This class of plate was introduced about 1980 and has always carried a WD prefix or suffix. Current plates have the words “WEIGHT DISTANCE” embossed in the plate. The vehicles using the plates are almost exclusively very heavy trucks such as dump trucks. The registration fees are based on a formula which multiplies the gross weight rating of the truck times the number of miles driven. The owner must periodically submit a form to the MVD, stating and certifying the actual mileage driven by the vehicle during the applicable reporting period.
This plate, WD-IR2766, by all appearances a combination of the Weight Distance and International Registration Plan types, has not been positively identified as to its purpose.  It is not described in the MVD publication New Mexico License Plates 1984 Edition, though that publication does show the regular 1983 Weight Distance plate with the embossed “83.”

If you have any information on this type of plate, and especially if you have documentation on it, please contact us.
