A license plate marker light is a small light that illuminates the license plate of a vehicle. It is also known as a license plate light, tag light, or number plate light. They are required by law in most jurisdictions, as they help to make the license plate visible to other drivers and law enforcement officers at night and in other low-light conditions.
They typically use incandescent bulbs, but LED bulbs are becoming increasingly popular. LED bulbs are more energy-efficient and have a longer lifespan than incandescent bulbs.
There are two main types of license plate marker lights:
- Surface mount: Surface mount are attached to the surface of the vehicle, typically above or below the license plate.
- Recessed mount: Recessed mount are recessed into the body of the vehicle, typically on either side of the license plate.
