PHOENIX — Arizona drivers can now use digital license plates rather than traditional physical plates.

After more than a year of testing on Arizona Department of Transportation fleet vehicles, LTE network-connected digital plates that display messages such as "stolen" or "invalid" to alert drivers and authorities of illegal driving will be available for others on the road.

ADOT spokesperson Doug Nick has previously described it basically as an iPad that goes in place of a traditional plate on the back of the vehicle.

Dubbed Rplate Digital License plates, the devices are available via auto service providers or plate manufacturer Reviver Auto .

The Arizona MVD does not receive proceeds from sales of the plates, which are available for preorder starting at $499.
