I could tell that the dusty old car had come from Ontario by its licence plates.

the underline part also can be incorrect, but i think it "by its licence plates" is the wrong one.

if we thnk about that, " i come to school by bus", in this sentence, it may mean that the car come to here(whatever here may be) from Ontario by taking its licence plates.

what does everybody else think?

Hi,

I could tell that the dusty old car had come from Ontario by its licence plates.

I don't really see anything wrong with this.

Best wishes, Clive
