    When I lived in DE if you got a vanity plate you had to keep the regular (number) plate in your vehicle since that was the one actually registered to the vehicle.

    3. Amateur Radio license plates are to be displayed on the front and rear of one vehicle for which it is issued. The regular license plate may be kept inside the vehicle and produced upon request by law enforcement.

    That's what caught my attention. OK is a one-plate state, but if you have AR plates you have to have TWO???

    yeah that is a bit odd.

    It’s a Government regulation. You expect it to make sense? o_O

    I posted because a closed thread from some years ago never really answered the question someone if someone asks again, as I'm sure they will, the answer is here.

    I've seen that kind of thing when it comes to displaying "original" or "original year of issue" plates on classic/antique cars in some states. You're allowed to display such old plates as a courtesy to the sensibilities of that hobby, but you have to keep the "real" plates in the car in case an authority figure wants to see them.

    We have 4 vehicles registered as "Antique Autos, two suburbans
    and two pickup trucks.
    We were issued only one plate, (Texas usually requires two)
    for the rear.
    If one can find plates from the year of manufacture and are in
    good condition, you can take them to the county tax office, and
    they will register them as your "official" plates.

    In our local Fourth of July parade this morning, I saw a 1931
    Model A Victoria coupe with 1931 plates and the plate was obviously
    re-painted to original colors. (cant do that to the more modern
    "reflective" plates which would fit my 1978 trucks, and in that
    year it was only a renewal sticker)
    Still looking for a set of 1977 Texas truck plates, but haven't
    found any clean enough.

    OK has some crazy laws. Alas, they are not alone. :D

    When they do, I'll point out that I have call letter plates so that potential thieves will know that I'm a ham. They will then know that I'm cheap and don't have anything worth stealing.
    N1EN, KE0GXN and KP4SX like this.

    Here in CO the call letter plate is THE real registered plate, not a secondary plate. Same for vanity plates.

    Plates do not stay with the vehicle when ownership is transferred, and can be re-assigned to your replacement vehicle.
