Stop plastic pollution from Learner & Provisional driver plates in NSW

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

NSW regulation requires that plastic “L” (Learner) and “P” (Provisional) plates be on the exterior of the vehicle only. These plastic plates can often be seen in NSW on the roadside and in the gutters as they too easily fall off cars and wash down the stormwater drains, becoming plastic pollution.

Boomerang Alliance is calling on the NSW government to change the current requirement to allow the Learner and Provisional plates to be displayed inside the vehicle.

Queensland offers a downloadable template; SA sells 'see-through plates' for inside the car window; ACT,  WA, Tasmania and Victoria simply require: "You must display L-plates so they are clearly visible from the front and back of the car you are driving." Magnetic plates, plate display brackets and plate clips are also available in most states and territories.

This is an easily preventable form of plastic pollution - and with your support, we look forward to NSW taking action to prevent it.


After you sign this petition, we encourage you to send any "L" or "P" driver plates that you find littered to Minister for Customer Service The Hon. Victor Dominello MP, Minister for Transport and Roads The Hon. Andrew Constance MP or Minister for Energy and Environment The Hon. Matt Kean MP, with a note asking for a change in the law that currently requires them to be on the exterior of the vehicle.

Visit for their postal addresses and to see a couple of sample notes to give you an idea of what to write.
