Possessing an Unattached Identification Plate

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:

  1. You knowingly possessed an identification plate, and
  2. The plate was not attached to the motor vehicle it relates to

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.
