What Do You Think of the New ‘Texas Classic’ License Plate? [POLL]

It’s black, it’s white, and read all over.

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles has introduced their newest ‘general issue’ license plate.  It’s called the ‘Texas Classic’, and even though it may look rather basic on first glance, the TxDMV is quick to point out that it is very fashionable. 

The Texas Classic includes:

  • Two new, high-visibility security threads embedded into the license plate sheeting join the existing holograms. Texas is the first state in the country to provide dual security threads, making it easier for law enforcement to spot legitimate plates.


  • Bigger plate numbers. The plate letters and numbers are a full inch wide and just over 2 ½ – inches tall.
  • A new license plate pattern. Plates will be issued with three letters followed by four numbers. By keeping the letters and numbers separate in the alpha-numeric pattern, the seven- character license plate number is easier to remember. This is convenient for plate owners, and also provides better recall for law enforcement and citizen witnesses.
  • Plus, it’s black and white which means it will match any color vehicle.


These new plates have already been shipped out to the 254 Texas counties, however, they may not be available in your county…yet… to save taxpayer money and avoid waste, counties must first exhaust their inventory of the current general-issue plate before issuing the new one.
