Well, you have to know that they exist two methods to change the license plate of your vehicle in GTA Online. The first, which is the simplest to implement, only allows you to change the background color of the plate, without however having the possibility to customize it further.
Then there is another, more hidden, which allows you to customize the plate more thoroughly. Don’t worry – you don’t have to go through any mods, RP servers, or whatever unofficial content. The ability to customize your vehicle’s license plate on GTA Online has been made available directly by the game’s developers and is one of the “older” features among other things.
In fact, you may never have noticed it, but you have seen that one of the girls who often appears on the game’s loading screen is holding one smartphone that on the back has an icon that in some ways resembles the logo of a well-known tech company? Well, the application linked to the phantom company mentioned by the game really exists.
In fact, Rockstar Games has been launching theOfficial Grand Theft Auto application: iFruit for Android (also available on alternative stores for devices without Google services) and iPhone / iPad which is designed to allow you to perform operations that cannot be performed directly in the game.
For download the app, you just need to open it digital store of your mobile device, search “Ifruit”, press onfruit icon and tap the button Install / Get. In the case of iPhones and iPads, you may also be prompted to verify yours identity using Face ID, Touch ID or Apple ID password.

How to change license plates on GTA 5 Online
Now that you have the iFruit application configured correctly and the right connections between the various accounts, I would say that it is time to actually explain to you how to customize the license plate in GTA 5 Online.
First of all, you must know that in order for the option to change the license plate to appear on the iFruit app, you must have a garage it’s a personal vehicle in GTA Online. I know: it may seem almost obvious, but in reality it is not, as there are not a few who have just finished the tutorial and therefore do not know how to proceed.
Also, I remind you that unfortunately GTA Online progress is not shared across platforms, so someone found himself having to start everything from scratch after downloading the game on another console or on a PC, perhaps thanks to some free initiative.

It is a figure that even a novice player can rack up in relatively few hours, perhaps by running several races or by following the directions I provided in my guide on how to earn money on GTA Online. In any case, if you have any doubts about the procedure for obtaining the desired structure, I recommend that you consult my tutorial on how to buy a garage on GTA.

To be clear, the model Karin Rebel it just costs $ 3,000 and can be customized.
Once you have purchased your personal vehicle, it will be delivered to you in the garage that you have previously purchased. Open, therefore, the map, go to the place, enter thebuilding, get on the vehicle and take it out.

At this point, press on the item Plaques present at the bottom, type the contents of the plate in the space provided at the top and select the background (You will be shown how many dollars you will have to pay, but usually it is not that much).
Great, now your license plate is ready: you just have to press the button Customize present at the bottom left, then on the button ORDER present just below your vehicle and tap on the option OK, in order to accept the “quote”. If everything has been done correctly, the message will appear on the screen Order sent.
Alternatively, I recommend that you try to configure the entrance panel again And place the order or to try to first set a plaque for one of the characters in the story. For the rest, if you have problems with the iFruit app, I recommend that you consult the official Rockstar guidelines.
How to use your custom license plate in GTA Online

You may be required to spend a few dollars for repair the vehicle before you can change it, but then just press on the option Process order, paying what you owe, to get yours plate. Once your vehicle is out of Los Santos Customs, you will be able to show off the modification properly.
