Depending on where you live in the world, you may only be required to attach a single license plate to your car. Other areas require drivers to fit the standard plate in the rear and an additional plate on the front. In the United States, there are only 19 states that do not require a front license plate and 31 which require you to have both.
Here in California, you have to ruin the front of your car with a plate on the grille or bumper, which, to us, looks terrible especially on the types of cars that we have within our fleet!
While Europe’s license plates are quite small, US plates are large and especially difficult to mount on supercars. Many supercar owners have come up with clever ways to mount the plates while others choose to leave it off and risk getting a ticket.
According to a Texas newspaper, local Republican congressman Ken King is pushing House Bill 673, which would exempt certain cars from needing a front plate.
State law already exempts “a road tractor, a motorcycle, a trailer, (and) a semitrailer,” but King wants to add “a luxury passenger car” to section 504.943 of the Texas Transportation Code. The rule would define a luxury car as any vehicle “that has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of at least $60,000 for a baseline model.”
