I could not find a thread discussing the law here. Obviously there are lots of people here mounting the Plate in different ways to avoid the bumper drilling and poor look of standards mounting.
I have personally done a temporary mount but I am thinking of trimming the bottom of the plate so it fits right (see picture). Do you think the police would care?
From the Drivers act:
Registration and number plate requirements
34 A person may not drive a motor vehicle or tow a trailer on a highway, and the person who owns a motor vehicle or trailer may not permit another person to drive or tow it on a highway,
(i) a registration card for the vehicle has been issued under this Act and is valid,
(ii) the vehicle displays, in accordance with the regulations, the quantity and type of number plates that the regulations prescribe for use on a vehicle of its registration class, and
(iii) the number plates display the vehicle's registration card number and, in accordance with the regulations, stickers showing the vehicle's registration class and that the registration is valid; or
(b) unless a valid registration permit issued under this Act for the vehicle is displayed on or carried in it in accordance with the regulations, or a valid permit under section 87 of The Highway Traffic Act is displayed on or carried in it in accordance with that Act.
