The following are penalties for improper use of dealer plates:
Administrative Action. The Michigan Department of State may take administrative action against the dealer's license, limit the dealer's plate allotment or both.
Civil or Criminal Consequences. The courts may hold dealers liable for associated civil or criminal violations. It is ultimately the courts' decision whether or not citations are justified in cases of improper dealer plate use.
