Repair or Repairer Plates.

Repair plates are used for the purpose of road testing vehicles that a company does not own, or vehicles owned, but not registered. A Repair license is required to use these plates. Series begins with the RA prefix and the garages number. Additional plates for that garage would recieve the next letter, ie: RB, RC etc etc. When the numbers reached 999, the plates were not long enough to fit four numbers after the prefix letters. Thus any repair licenses after RA-999 starter with the "OA" prefix. In 1954 when the plates were reissued on a 12 inch base, the "OA" plates were then switched to the "RA" prefix and the number made into correct four digit series. So, an "OA-123" plate was reissued as a "RA-1123" plate. This eliminated the confusing "OA" plates.
