For years, some people have tried to install license plates on their cars.
The idea has been met with opposition from local authorities, who fear the plates could be a security risk and a distraction to the community.
Now, however, it is being put to the test in the UK, where a new system has been launched to allow drivers to put their plates on a vehicle and get a license.
The license plate system is part of the government’s drive to promote public transport, and is designed to allow motorists to register their vehicles with the authorities and get discounts for public transport.
The scheme was launched in 2016, and it was unveiled by Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin in March 2017.
McLoughlin described the system as “a very simple and straightforward way to get a car licence plate”.
“It’s a pretty simple way to register the car, it’s a fairly straightforward way of paying for the car,” McLoughton said at the time.
“And that’s just for the driver, it doesn’t take the whole car.
It only takes the car’s licence plate.
It’s got a very simple system.”
McLouches system allows drivers to register a car using the digital licence plate, which can be attached to their car, or a personalised plate that is placed on the front of the vehicle.
The car’s registration card is also issued on the vehicle, with the plates linked to a specific phone number.
The scheme allows drivers who have already registered a car to use it, and to get discounts on public transport fares.
“We want to give people the choice to go and get on the public transport that’s right for them, and that they don’t have to pay a premium for,” McLouglin said at that time.
Under the scheme, drivers can apply to have their license plates placed on their vehicle, or to have a personalisation plate placed on a part of their car that could identify them.
The system allows the plate to be applied to the front or back of the car.
Licensing plates are issued by the local authority, and are usually free.
McCloughlin said the scheme is being rolled out across the country, and drivers are encouraged to register and get their plates.
“It is not an easy process,” McLouchlin said.
“You can have your plates in front of your car, but if you have to go out and buy a car, you can’t put them on your licence plate.”
The scheme was created after the death of a motorcyclist in the area who was killed while riding in his car.
