Has your license plate been stolen? We’ll show you how you should behave

The license plate is one of the essential elements that your vehicle must have so that it can drive smoothly. In addition, it must look correct and not be obscured so that it can be recognized by the authorities. If your license plate was recently stolen, we’ll show you the steps you should follow.

License plate personalization is very limited in Spain

Individual license plate adjustment

As you already know, in many countries license plate personalization is almost free for citizens and in the USA, for example, you can change your license plate without any restrictions. On many occasions you will be able to see modifications of words, numbers or even colors that Americans use to give a different touch to their vehicles.

However, in our country, license plate personalization is much more limited. To give you an idea, the numbers and letters on your license plate can never be changed at your discretion, nor can the white color of the background. The main change that can be seen concerns the materials of the license plate, which can change from metal to methacrylate or vice versa.

Hide the license plate

Another point to consider is the visibility of the license plate. By law, your car’s license plate must be clearly legible and not obscured by any object, even partially, as you may face a fine if the brokers deem it appropriate.

Additionally, the fine is much higher for those who go a step further and install license plate obscuration systems on their vehicle. Specifically 6,000 euros plus 6 points loss. So if you have such a system or are thinking about installing one, you might want to think twice.

Has your license plate been stolen?

If your vehicle’s license plate was recently stolen, there are a few things you should know. The most important thing is that you report this matter to the authorities as quickly as possible so that it is recorded. You will then need to notify your insurance company, who will in most cases help you transport your vehicle to a repair shop so that a new license plate can be installed.

You should know that it is generally forbidden to drive without a license plate, regardless of the vehicle or the situation. So if it is stolen, you won’t be able to drive your car anywhere if you don’t want to be fined, but you have to do it via a crane. The fine for driving without a license plate is basically 200 euros.
