  • Free Texas Vehicle Registration
  • Free Licence Plates
  • Military Service Members

If you were/are in the military, you deserve special treatment, and we all thank you for your service. There are a select few in the military who went above and beyond for our country and get extra compensation.

Legislators in Texas recently passed an expanded list of acceptable military medals that qualify for free Texas license plates and lifetime registration. This will allow certain vehicle registration fees to be waived.

Military service members and retirees who have received one of the listed medals will be provided a free set of license plates, and some vehicle registration fees will be waived, as long as they register that vehicle in the State of Texas.

Now that more medals have been added to the list, more veterans will qualify for this benefit. Here is the list of those specific decorations according to the Military Officers Association Of America, El Paso Chapter.
