Can registered vehicles in North Carolina still have an out-of-state license plate on the front bumper?

Ken Little

Car owners have an apparent green light to attach out-of-state plates to their front bumpers, said a spokeswoman for the N.C. Department of Transportation, Division of Motor Vehicles.

“There is nothing in the motor vehicle statutes which specifically addresses the situation,” spokeswoman Margaret Howell said. “An expired vanity plate can be placed on the front of the vehicle, so barring any added direction from the statutes, an expired out-of-state plate can be displayed on the front of a vehicle just as a vanity plate can.”
