    Get an erasable marker (any colour should be fine) and trace over whatever was written on the license plate. Then erase it using a soft cloth or paper towel. Trace and erase in small sections because if left too long that marker may dry on and you'll have to repeat the process. I'm a teacher and in some classes teachers pick up permanent marker instead of erasable for the whiteboards. That's what we do to remove the permanent marker. It may work on your license plate. Good luck!

    If you mean like a magic marker, alcohol will work OK, but denatured alcohol will get it all off very easily. Just put the alcohol directly on the plate, wait maybe 5 to 10 seconds and wipe the marker off.

    If there's any left on the plate, put some more on a clean paper towel and rub it off. That's the easy way.

    well i know in my office her we have a white board that we use permenant and dry marker on, to get off the permenant we just write over it with the dry and it comes right off , you may wanna practice it a few times before you do the actual thing remember these may be two different materials ok. That is horrible some a hole did that!!

    You can buy a small can of "OOPS" in the paint dept. at Wal-Mart for a few bucks. It removes paint, marker, stains, sticky residue, etc. It works wonders, and is great to have around the house!

    Magic Eraser works really well on permanent marker.

    WD40 and Magic Eraser!

    WD40 will break the "permanent" bond between the pigment and the surface while the magic eraser will scrub the residual away.
