Q: How do I get personalized license plates?
A: You may check the availability of a personalized phrase, letter or number combination through www.myplates.com, the state’s plate marketing vendor’s web site. Personalized plate fees are collected in addition to your registration fees and other applicable fees.
Q: How long will it take to receive new specialty plates?
A: Approximately two to three weeks. Once your application is approved, it is sent to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to be manufactured and then shipped to your local County Tax Assessor-Collector Office.
Q: My renewal notice indicated I need new license plates. Why? How do I get them?
A: Plates are replaced every seven years due to loss of reflective material. If the renewal notice indicates your plates are seven years old, the county tax assessor-collector should automatically issue a new set of plates with the new windshield sticker at no additional charge when your registration is renewed. The old set of plates should be defaced to prevent the possibility of fraudulent use.
Q: Will you release my personal information?
A: State and federal laws restrict TxDMV from releasing personal information. Personal information will be released only if:
• There is written consent from the individual
• It can be certified that the information will be used for a lawful, legitimate purpose
Personal information will not be released for any other reason. To request information, fill out a request form and certify the information will be used for a lawful, permitted purpose.
