Front Number Plate Fixture Requirements

Mr Muller made this Official Information request to New Zealand Transport Agency

Currently waiting for a response from New Zealand Transport Agency, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Mr Muller

Dear New Zealand Transport

I would like to request information regarding the display of a number plate at the front of a private motor vehicle.

According to the NZTA website, it states, "All plates must be fixed securely to the vehicle in an upright position. They must be displayed so that all the characters (numbers and letters) are clearly visible at all times."

Since the NZTA website states, "The Transport Agency is no longer actively pursuing an adhesive plate product. We were unable to find a suitable product that the manufacturer would guarantee and that could be provided at a reasonable price."

If a private vehicle owner, is able to obtain, on their own, an adhesive number plate, which meets the requirements that:

- It is fixed securely to the vehicle in an upright position.
- It is displayed so that all the characters (numbers and letters) are clearly visible at all times.

Please provide all information, which states whether this is legal or illegal in New Zealand.

Yours faithfully,
Mr Muller
