Club & Articles of Association

The AKS was founded in 1979 by a small group of license plate collectors who figured that it would be much easier to obtain a larger collector by uniting in a group to do so by trade or other occasions. Our 3-4 times a year issued full colour printed club magazine „Depesche“ offers free trade, sale and query ads, informs about everything license plate related around the world and provides useful information about the hobby itself. Our members organise license plate swap meetings thoughout the year, our anual general assemblying is organized by our first chairman in October of each year. All meetings and other occasions are advertised in the Depesche magazine and every member is invited to participate and also organise a meet himself. Our swap meetings are the best and easiest possibility to obtain plates for your own collection from every part of the world due to the internationality of our members! The Automobile Registration Plate Collectors Club united members from Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Switzerland, Austria, Great Britain, Australia and the USA.
