Do you need front and rear plates in Washington?

Yes, you need front and rear plates in the state of Washington.

Having front and rear license plates is common in many states because it makes it easier for law enforcement to identify vehicles. It’s also helpful for motorists who need to identify vehicles in case of incidents of insurance liability. Front and rear plates also make it more convenient to find the license plate number of any Washington-registered vehicle you might be interested in learning more about.

And if you see a vehicle without a front license plate, it’s a good sign it’s a vehicle from out of state. We offer license plate searches for every state, including nearby Oregon, California (and even Hawaii and Alaska)!

Do you already have a Washington vehicle’s identification number (VIN)? We can also help you run a VIN lookup!
