USA: Digital License plates get approval in three states06/15/2022
The high subscription fees for the digital license plates are said to be offset by a number of benefits.
Reviver, the company which manufactures digital license plates has received approval to sell in the state of Michigan, USA. Following Arizona and California, Michigan is now the third state in the country which has received the approval to sell digital number plates for vehicles.
While the high-tech number plates are currently sold only in the three states, they are legal for use across all 50 states, as well as Canada & Mexico. Reviver, claims that its digital plates could soon be available for sale in as many as 10 states in the near future.
Reviver offers two types of digital license plates. The first is battery-operated, while the second one is the hard-wired plate. Both types are available on a subscription basis, with the battery-operated plates offered for US$20 per month, while the hard-wired plates are offered at US$25 per month. The battery-operated digital number plates are required to get a battery replacement every 5 years.
The high subscription fees for the digital license plates are said to be offset by a number of benefits. These include the option for vehicle owners to customise their number plates, switch between light and dark modes, change banner messages and also display information and amber lights whenever required.
The digital plates also come with a built-in tracker system, sending an alert to the owner’s smartphone whenever the car moves. Owners can also report their cars as stolen on the app, with the plates displaying a message alerting that the vehicle is stolen. Also, the digital license plate displays an ‘invalid’ message once the vehicle’s registration expires.
