Indiana’s Motorcycle License Plates

Motorcycle License PlateEvery motorcycle registered in Indiana must display a license plate in a visible location on the rear of the motorcycle. Most of Indiana's distinctive license plates may be displayed on motorcycles. Special group recognition license plates allow motorists to support military personnel and their families, Indiana colleges and universities, and many local organizations. Motorcycles may also display personalized license plates. All group fees and administrative fees charged for special group recognition license plates or personalized license plates also apply to motorcycle plates.

License Plate Stickers and Frames

Your plate must have a sticker showing the day, month, and year of your next registration renewal, and the county in which your vehicle is registered. Indiana law prohibits license plate frames or covers that obscure stickers, text, or numbers on your plate
