Everyone please read carefully! This new law takes effect January 1, 2009. Please understand you can have a license plate frame holder as long as it doesn't cover the Arizona on the top your license plate. If the license plate frame holder covers the Arizona, you could receive a $130.00 ticket! It is your responsibility as Arizona drivers to know new motor vehicle laws, the state doesn't send out mailings. For more info on new motor vehicle laws click on the link below. If you have a frame holder that covers the Arizona, you need to remove it before January 1, 2009 or replace it with one that leaves Arizona visible.
License Plate Holder Law - State law* requires that the state name at the top of Arizona license plates must be visible. Any license plate holder or cover that prevents the license plate from being clearly legible is in violation of this new law.* A.R.S. 28-2354(B.)
