What is the Durability and weather resistance of the Tesla Digital License Plate?
The Tesla Digital License Plate has endured over five years of development and testing. It is IP66 rated. IP66 is a certification rating for outdoor electronics and goods. This certification ensures “Ingress Protection” from extreme levels of dirt, water and heat. The Tesla Digital License Plate comes with a 12-month manufacturer’s limited warranty.
How easy is it to steal or hack the Tesla Digital License Plate?
The Tesla Digital License Plate is much more secure than traditional license plates and is tamper-resistant. The Tesla Digital License Plate is affixed to the vehicle with a highly secure proprietary bracket that renders the plate useless if removed. Tesla Digital License Plate digital license tags also eliminate registration sticker theft. The Tesla Digital License Plate is designed with the highest encryption technology available and the latest generation software will be continuously upgraded via automatic downloads. No personal information is stored in the Tesla Digital License Plate hardware.
How is the visibility of the Tesla Digital License Plate at night?
The Tesla Digital License Plate has a unique reflective screen and incorporates a backlight feature to further ensure night-time or adverse weather visibility.
How is the Tesla Digital License Plate powered?
The Tesla Digital License Plate is hard-wired to a fusible powerline in the vehicle. The Tesla Digital License Plate draws extremely low power levels (less than 3mA), and only draws power when downloading or uploading data. The Tesla Digital License Plate also features an internal back-up battery. The Tesla Digital License Plate screen is ‘bi-stable’, meaning it will display the assigned license plate number with or without power.
Do Tesla Digital License Plate users still get regular license plates and registration stickers?
Yes, the California DMV will issue traditional license plates and all regular California registration and license fees are applicable. The customer is required by law to retain the traditional plate within the vehicle along with current registration stickers affixed for visual inspection when requested by any peace officer. A formal letter will be sent to the Tesla Digital License Plate owner authorizing use of the Tesla Digital License Plate by the DMV which should be kept in the vehicle at all times. All California front license plate regulations are still applicable. The Tesla Digital License Plate is governed by California Vehicle Code §4853.
How long does it take for the assigned license plate number to appear on the installed and registered Tesla Digital License Plate?
If a license plate number is already assigned to the vehicle, the plate number will download to the plate in less than 36 hours of registration. If a new, previously unregistered vehicle, the assigned plate number will download within 24-36 hours after the DMV has assigned a plate number to the vehicle. A T Sportline logo will default on the plate until the DMV assigned number appears on the Tesla Digital License Plate. New vehicle plate numbers can take up to 90 days to be assigned by the DMV.
Why buy a Tesla Digital License Plate?
