How to install

Add the following to your composer.json:

{
    "require": {
        "divtag-nl/license-plate": "^1.0.0"
    }
}

How to use

Call the constructor of the license plate class of your choice with the user input as the first parameter:

<?php
$licenseplate = new \Intrepidity\LicensePlate\DutchLicensePlate('08ttnp');
if($licenseplate->isValid())
{
    echo $licenseplate->format(); // Outputs 08-TT-NP in this case
}

Since the license plate classes for each country implement the LicensePlateInterface, they expose isValid() and format() methods. Country-specific methods may also be available. Please check the code of the specific class to get the complete picture.

Please note that this library does not check if a license plate actually exists, nor does it exclude combinations that aren't allowed.
