In CA if you don't have front and back plates you get a fix it ticket.

From legalmatch.com:


Do All States Require Both Front and Rear License Plates?

No. 31 states require both front and rear license plates, while the remaining 19 only require rear license plates. Automobile manufacturers are prohibited by law from distributing cars with only one license plate in states that require both.

  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • Arizona

Re: In NV all you need is a rear license plate

Probably better to have both front and back. Just in case we see something 'fishy'/illegal/whatever, we can jot down the front plate. Oh, also, when driving, and someone is driving behind us, driving badly/illegally/whatever, we can make a mental note of his/her front plates, and call 911.

'More or less', 'Right or wrong', 'In general', and 'Just thinking out loud ' (as usual).

Only rear license plate here in PA. We travel up and down the east coast and have never been pulled over in another state.

We have front and rear license plates in Washington, BUT we are only required to have yearly tabs on the rear plate.

My state requires two tags, you will get a big ticket for non-compliance.
