In your state are cars required to have 2 license plates or just 1?

In CA, one. (Rear)
But so many cars have the rear plate as the dealership ad! I guess they can wander through bridge tolls at will.

You have to have two licenses. They need to be visible on the front and rear of the vehicle, the rear must have a light, so it can be visible at night.

I didn’t realize that ANY states required 2 license plates. Just one more reason I love living in AL—another one of those lower cost of living things! Lol

Front and back are required. Such a waste.

You have to pay more and it’s a waste of material

It’s such a waste of material. I moved to Oregon from Arizona, where they required only one in the back. When I moved here, I had to take my car in to have one in the front installed.
Just seemed like a waste of my time. And material.

Completely irrationally, and with no discernible benefit to anyone outside of the license plate making industry, two. A rear plate with expiration data and a registration tab that actually matters, and a front plate that does nothing but create drag and ugly up the car. You'd think having that in common with Misery would be enough to convince us to change it, but no.

The front plate is necessary in Ca to raise additional revenue from red light cameras.

States that do not require front plates have no difficulty using red light cameras, taking a picture from the front (of the driver and presumably the front plate if there is one) and rear (of the plate). I'd expect CA to do the same, since the fix-it ticket for a missing front plate is probably way cheaper than a ticket for running a red light.

2 plates in WA, but you only put tags on the back one.

In Illinois you need two plates.

I believe 2, but it’s not enforced. Considering many cars especially on the European front don’t design them to have plates on the front
