Policy Position on Alternative License Plate Standard

AAMVA supports alternative license plate technologies as long as they conform to the AAMVA License Plate Standard (unless otherwise noted within the Standard). Adoption of digital license plates should not be a precursor to removal of the front license plate requirement in those jurisdictions that require two (front and rear) license plates. Jurisdictions requiring two license plates, but allowing display of a rear electronic license plate, should require a license plate that meets the AAMVA License Plate Standard be displayed on the front of the vehicle.
