Thanks for all the responses. I guess I should have used the search function. I particularly liked Area 51's approach but I'm not quite ready to pull out the DeWalt yet.

hard to drill 'em the first week. Just punched two 1/4" holes in mine and got it legal for my road test...just a simple bracket behind the plate and a soft trim ring. Ultimately, I'll finally spot a better bracket and mount it up with the same holes. For now i'm legal and done. Road Trip countdown clock is 93 hours.

The auto plates in Washington are because it is a fixed load. Our plates have been in the windshield for 10 years.

Can't speak to the 2 plate requirement, but here in SC, they issue a normal plate. I used to see an "RV" tag and thought that was what I would get but the dealer said that is not a requirement so I just transferred mine from a car I sold.

With truck plates your insurance and registration would likely cost several times more than what you're paying for personal plates plus you would probably be subject to commercial inspections, go over truck scales, carry a log book and a get a CDL.

Texas motor vehicle section states


HB 625
clarifies that the penalty for operating a vehicle on a public highway without displaying the two license plates assigned to the vehicle is a misdemeanor offense punishable by a fine not to exceed $200.

i have found that most local police kinda ignore this but state troopers will stop you for it uh don't ask how i know this

Depending on what kind of day the state trooper here in Texas is having, you can be issued a ticket if you don't have a front plate mounted.... And they won't take "a lot of others don't have one" as a logical reason....

Just do what I did - bite the bullet and drill two small holes in the front fiberglass and screw the sucker down and move on down the road.... A lot better than a $250 ticket....

Considering the affection the DPS seems to have for your little stretch of the highway, you could get pulled over every day.

I'm legal. Plate is on, passed my road test today! Went joyriding on I20 to celebrate.

Road Trip begins in 84 hours. Gonna drive through No3putt's town about 4pm on Wednesday, I expect him on an overpass to get a picture for "I saw a Berkshire."
