In 1959, the state of Colorado began to move away from two-letter prefixes in an effort to account for significant population growth, and the state begins to use plates for more than one or two years. Jackson county passenger license plates adopt FGC, FGE, and FGE and their allotments, trailers now begin with F, and various optional tags become available for registration.
