Whether your vehicle requires a front plate varies from state to state. If your state requires a front plate, you will need to have a plate to be compliant. While you could put a Rplate on the front of the vehicle, we don’t recommend it as there is a significant amount of debris that can hit the plate in normal operation. The Rplate protective glass is extremely durable, but is can be chipped or cracked with repeated force. Depending on your state’s legal requirements, you may be able to use Reviver’s non-digital version of the Rplate. For more information on this option and whether you can use it, send us an email at email@example.com.
