Possessing an Unattached Identification Plate is an offence under section 154J of the Crimes Act 1900 which carries a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison.
To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that:
An ‘identification plate’ is a plate or mark declaring the status of a road vehicle which the national standard approves to be placed on vehicles of that type.
This includes registration / licence plates on cars and motorbikes
You are not guilty of the offence if you establish, on the balance of probabilities, that you had a ‘reasonable excuse’ for your conduct.
Other defences include duress and necessity.
