How do you install a front license plate on a Tesla Model 3?

I live in California and just purchased a Tesla Model 3. I know I’ll need a front and back license plate, but I’m not sure how to install a front license plate on a Tesla. What’s the best way to install a front license plate on a Model 3?

Congratulations on the new car! Tesla Model 3s are awesome, so I’m sure you’re excited!
Although most Tesla owners refuse to use front license plates, 31 states require them, including California. Thankfully, there are options available to install a front license plate on your Model 3 without damaging it.
The easiest way to install a front license plate is with a license plate mount that attaches to your car’s grill. These mounts don’t require drilling or adhesive, making them quick to install and mess-free. Some brands to check out are:
  • SnapPlate
  • Quick Bandit
  • OttoPlate
  • Slipstream
If you aren’t concerned about damaging your Tesla, you could opt for a mount that uses adhesive. You can also visit a body shop, mechanic, or Tesla service center to have one permanently installed.
Beyond having a front license plate, California also has requirements for car insurance. To find the best coverage for your new car, consider using Jerry.
