It is illegal to drive a car without a license plate, but recently I have seen an increasing number of vehicles that are seemingly unregistered.
For example, I spotted about 10 cars driving on Highway No.2 (Mitraphap Road) during my last trip to the Northeast. At one spot in Nakhon Ratchasima, highway policemen had stopped a car without a registration plate while another in front of us also had no plates.
According to the Motor Vehicle Act, every vehicle must carry and show a license plate when in use on public roads. In case of failure, the driver can be fined up to 2,000 baht.
