The fact that your wife brought it back from the US suggests there may be a few other things not in compliance with Canadian law. In which case you may have been very lucky to only get only this one ticket. You may wish to do a thorough check before you continue to drive this vehicle.The number plates for a motor vehicle, other than a motorcycle or a motor assisted bicycle, shall be attached to and exposed in a conspicuous position on the front and rear of the motor vehicle

Thanks for the reply
Also, Auto Dealers when using/transporting/driving a vehicle have no front plate either only a rear plate is attached....??????Little bit of a contradiction to the H.T.A. ?
A "10-day permit" and "dealer plates" are temporary, not permanently attached to a vehicle like normal plates. The HTA also specific where temporary permits and plates must be attached. The temporary is also paper and would not last in various weather conditions.
Since the issuance of "temporary" validation stickers ( "T"), I have not seen a 10-day permit.

I had the same issue when I moved back to Ontario from Michigan a few years ago; Michigan doesn't have front licence plates, so no easy place to fix the front licence plate to.
MTO has to see the RIV paperwork before they'll issue the plates for the car, so all of it had to be brought into compliance before he got the plates. (Probably had to get daytime running lights installed - that was the big thing with the car I brought over.)ticketcombat wrote:The fact that your wife brought it back from the US suggests there may be a few other things not in compliance with Canadian law.
