Texas has gotten creative about license
plates as a way of being creative about
raising revenue. The idea is to give
Texas residents more interesting and
engaging choices in personal
expression on their plates so that more
people will find a specialty plate design
that fits their personality.
The first step is to choose the design you
like at www.myplates.com, then, if you
want to personalize, type in the plate
message you’d like. The site will tell you
immediately whether that message is
available. Last step, choose whether
you’d like to purchase for 1, 5, or 10
years. The longer the term, the better the
deal. You can pick up the plates about
three weeks later at a county tax office.
Sure, lots of our designs have Texas
themes and support Texas colleges and
sports teams, but we also have plates
that support out of state colleges from
Nebraska to Florida.
Other plates support causes that defy
borders like plates supporting the
National Breast Cancer Foundation and
World Wildlife Fund.
So as a part of your new start in a new
state, think of what your plates will say
to your 25 million fellow Texas residents.
It’s a big state with thousands of miles of
roads, where people often spend a
whole lot of time in their cars. You’ll
quickly spot My Plates on the road
because their full-color backgrounds and
fun designs really stand out.
If you’re moving in state and already have
Texas plates, are they My Plates? If not,
take a minute at www.myplates.com to
check out the fun you could be having.
Do I have to wait until I renew my
registration to order a plate?
No. You can purchase a plate at any
time. You will need to be a Texas
resident with a Texas address. Your car
will need to be registered in Texas
before you can affix My Plates to your
What types of vehicles can my specialty
plate be issued to?
