Novelty license plates and/or frames are usually installed by motorists or automobile dealerships. While automobile dealerships may install such plates for promoting their business, motorists may install novelty license plates to express their brand preference or an affiliation with a group, state, country, sports/sport team, hobby, art, custom creation, etc.
In the United States, 19 states do not require an official front license plate, these states being:
Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia
Also, these are U.S. territories that do not require an official front license plate: Puerto Rico,U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam.
In Nevada, front plates are optional if the vehicle was not designed for a front plate and the manufacturer did not provide an add-on bracket or other means of displaying the front plate.
Antique auto collectors may use novelty replicas of period license plates to give their show cars a dated look, or import vehicle owners may use a novelty replica of a foreign plate to give it a foreign image. Some states allow “Year of Manufacture” registrations where an original, official plate expiring on the model year of an antique car is revalidated.
Although most states allow novelty license frames some states require that the registration sticker not be blocked by the frame.
