they're intended to point down onto the plate so it's lit up. Generally extra lights would have to be red at back and white up front - I assume this applies to little ones like this as well.

You could

Point it onto your "L" or reg plates in theory as long as the beam at the rear is pointing Down with no "leakage" toward other vehicles and as there's already illumination for the reg plate provided there's probably not much point adding more, with the "L" plate any movement of it is likely to bounce the reflection from these led's around giving other road users the impression you're "flashing" your lights at them and ergo a Seriously bad idea!

As Phil says white (or yellow) light should point forward and red should point to the rear (there's rules as to how much too) No other colour is permitted on the road.
