I went to open the trunk of a friends car and accidentally grabbed the license plate and bent it up. Its still legible, but stays bent at a noticeable angle now.
For a present I would like to replace it with one from the college we both go to. I can buy them at the bookstore, but I believe they come blank. The car is register in NY. How do you go about engraving the license plate with the car number legally?
I realize that I probably can't do it because it's not my car, but would like to pay for it. I look at the NY website for license plates, but they had no information on a plate not being directly issued by the state. Does that mean you can't have them in New York?
