How to Make Custom License Plates in GTA Online
GTA V certainly doesn't skimp on the ability to customize your characters and vehicles. Plenty of outfits, characters builds, and vehicle paint jobs are available for your character and personal vehicles, but one of the best identifying customizable features is the license plate.
Lots of players have likely seen other players driving around with their personal vehicles in GTA Online with their personalized license plates, but have no idea how to do it themselves.
Making a custom license plate is not a very intuitive process, and cannot even be done in-game. though perhaps Rockstar will consider changing that in the future. This guide will walk you through the current process of changing your license plate.
GTA Online: How to Make a Custom License Plate
Though custom plates require external programs to create, it is by no means complicated to do. The first thing you'll need to do is download the Grand: Theft Auto: iFruit app from the Google Play or Apple store. This is a free app to download. You will then need to log in with your social club account information.
Scroll down until you find the "LS Customs" option, then launch it. There are four tabs in this application: Garage, Customize, Plates, and Home. You can customize other aspects of your personal vehicles in the "Customize" tab, but if you're just looking to edit your license plates, head to the "Plates" tab.
In this tab, you can edit multiple aspects of your license plate, including the background, the color, and of course, the text. For the text, you are restricted to eight characters maximum, so use them wisely. Once you've got your plate customized to your liking, click save and launch your copy of GTA V.
This won't automatically equip the license plate to your personal vehicles, but it will make it available to select in Los Santos Customs. Grab your favorite vehicle and drive it over to Los Santos Customs, then scroll your way to the "Plate" section. Here, you should be able to find your custom-made license plate and can equip it on your car. You can add some other custom plates to your other cars if you'd like, or you can rep the same plate on multiple rides.
With a custom plate, your favorite vehicle becomes a whole lot more personal. Now you can take to the streets of Los Santos in GTA Online and show off your new plates to the other players.
