A separate number shall be designated for each vehicle so licensed and the owner shall, before using such vehicle for hire, have such number plainly marked upon each side thereof, excepting only in case of motor vehicles duly registered under the laws of this Commonwealth, and in such cases the license issued hereunder shall contain the registration number of such motor vehicle.
