Theft from a motor vehicle is an offence under Section one of the Theft Act 1968.

It is not possible from the data collected on the court proceedings database held by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform to identify those offences which relate solely to the theft of car number plates from other thefts from a vehicle, as the data is not collected at this level of detail.
