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, which is a smaller copy of the vehicle number plate.

An auxiliary plate allows your vehicle's plate number to be seen clearly, and you can order one online, through myPlates.
