A license plate identifies vehicles for official purposes. The plate features an alphanumeric or numeric code that differentiates one vehicle from the other. The codes are unique within the States or the entire country, depending on the country in consideration. These plates are also called registration tags.
Just like a driver is registered, vehicles must also be registered. This will make it easy for officials to track every car. The inscriptions on plates provide information about the vehicle and the owner.
It is expected that license plates are attached to both front and rear of vehicles. Motorcycles are exceptions in some states. Most often, they require only one license plate.
Many people love to decorate their rides and make them a decorative item. You can paint your vehicle as much as you want, but in the end, you have no option than to stick the plain boring license plate to it. It is illegal to paint your license plate no matter the state or country in which you reside.
License plates are properties of the state in which you registered your vehicle. You cannot alter it since you will be breaking the law. Altering it attracts fines that range from one state to the other. In Arizona, for instance, you will be fined not less than $300 for using the fancy plate.

Are custom plate frames completely illegal?
