If the rear number plate of your vehicle is obscured by a bike rack or mobility device rack, you'll need to fit an auxiliary number plate. This is a smaller copy of the vehicle number plate and allows the plate number to be seen clearly.

Auxiliary number plates are white with black characters. You can order one online through myPlates, and pick it up at a service centre.

Note: Auxiliary number plates are not issued to trailers, caravans, motorbikes or public vehicles.
