In Transporter 2, Frank's car has a license plate at the back:

but not the front:

I noticed this, because if I remember correctly, in the first movie in the series, the license plate could be changed with the push of a button.

Why is this? Don't you need a licence plate at both ends?


No. Florida does not require a license plate at both ends.

Transporter 2 is set in Miami, Florida, U.S.A. Florida is one of the U.S. states which do not require a license plate at both ends.

There's a handy map here: Which States Don't Require A Front License Plate

  • The answer is right, but is that map accurate? I live in Texas and see many cars with no front license plate (although the back seems to be a special one for dealers/manufacturers) – Alvaro Montoro Dec 4 '16 at 23:21
  • @AlvaroMontoro - no idea. I don't live in the U.S. The article where I found the map is from 2013, so things might have changed. Laws could be different for dealer plates, which usually require only the rear plate to be displayed. – Tim Dec 5 '16 at 1:05
  • I live in a state that requires front LP but also see many cars that don't have one. Its important to understand that people don't always comply with the law. – sanpaco Dec 5 '16 at 19:18
  • @sanpaco or maybe they are from states that don't need one at the front and they are allowed to drive through your state without installing one. – unknown stuntman Dec 6 '16 at 19:09
