Are your plates legal?

Are your plates legal?

I hear this question at least once a day, and I certainly understand why. A better question might be, “Does my state require a front license plate?” or “Are your plates meant for legal use?”

We’ve tried to address this in our Custom European License Plate FAQ, but I thought I’d expand on that.

In short, in no state is it legal to use as your BACK plate. In some US states, they do not require a front license plate and you can display your custom plate. I did some searching and the following list seems to be the general consensus about which states* don’t require a front license plate:

Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia.

People also ask if it’s legal if they put their state issued plate number printed on a Euro-style plate and affix that to the front of their car. Assuming your state is not in the aforementioned list, this is still illegal. Same goes for putting your actual plate in your front dash, visor or window.

Of course, local and state laws change, and you can’t always believe what you read on the internet, so you should always check with your local Sheriff’s office to determine if it is ok to have a Custom European License Plate in your area.

That being said, we have customers all over the US as well as the world, so we know that quite a few customers choose to customize their ride, regardless of the laws.

I have ordered custom plates (TRBO WGN) from you in the past that went on my Passat Wagon.  I was so happy with the quality of these plates that I decided to order a set of used Berlin Plates for my Audi A6 3.2 quattro. Installed them on the car, and these like the TRBO WGN plate look great. Thanks for a great product again.
