    Q728: Is it legal to cover my car or motorbike whilst it is on the road?

    Any motor vehicle that is on a public road is required to display the registration plates. Covering the vehicle could prevent them from being seen and this could be an offence.

    It would not be illegal to cover the vehicle as long as the registration plates could be seen. Clear plastic panels could be used in the appropriate places to enable the registration plates to be visible.
