The French Departments

French Departments


France (mainland) is subdivided into 96 departments which are numbered alphabetically. This number is used in postal codes and is also visable on French license plates (1954-2009 system). In the list below you will find all department numbers, names and a picture from a license plate from that department. The last 2 numbers on the license plate indicate the department. At the bottom of this list you will find this info for the French overseas regions/departments, collectivities and territories.
