Sale of the Century: Texas Introduces 100th Anniversary License Plate

Sale of the Century:
Texas Introduces 100th Anniversary License Plate

 

100 year plate

AUSTIN – It’s a celebration one century in the making as the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles introduces a specialty license plate commemorating the 100th anniversary of license plates in the state.

The new 100-Year Plate will be available to order for only one year beginning Sept. 1, 2017. Texans who order this historic plate will pay $30 per year and be able to renew it annually. But no new orders will be accepted after Aug. 31, 2018. As a bonus, the first 100 customers will receive a special plate pattern with “100” as the first three characters followed by three letters starting with “AAA.”

“Texans enjoy their license plates,” said TxDMV Board Chairman Raymond Palacios Jr. “The primary purpose of a license plate is public safety, but the specialty license plate program allows drivers to give their plates a more personal touch. Plate enthusiasts, collectors, historians and everyday Texans can commemorate this 100-year milestone by displaying a piece of plate history.”

To honor the 100-year milestone, the anniversary plate includes features from the past and present:

  • The seal in the center of the plate is reminiscent of the 1917 radiator seal.
  • The top corners of the plate include “19” and “17.”
  • The plate includes security threads and the word “TEXAS” on a white background just as it is on the current general-issue plate.

License plate technology has significantly improved since the early days of Texas license plates. Plates were originally produced through a die stamping process on sheet iron. The first 300,000 plates were so heavy they had to be shipped by train and filled 20 rail cars.

Today, Texas plates are produced on aluminum and without die stamping allowing for a more efficient production process for all plates, including specialty plates. TxDMV currently offers 420 plate designs with several new plates being added as a result of bills passed during the 85th Legislative Session.

To learn more about Texas license plate history and see the design of every general-issue plate for the past 100 years, visit 100Plates.TxDMV.gov.

Good afternoon,

The Inventory Transaction report was available for viewing as of 8:37 AM CDT this morning (08/15/2017).  The only remaining issue is with the Funds Remittance report.  Some counties received a double entry for IVTRS transactions on 8/4/2017.  A funds adjustment will be required in order for the reports to balance.  If you are a county that had double IVTRS entries, no further action is required, as TxDMV will be providing a funds adjustment on your behalf and will contact the affected county no later than Friday August 25, 2017.  If you experience new issues with COGNOS, please contact the Service Desk.

The statewide ticket for this issue is 139012.

July 2017 Motor Vehicle Title Manual Update

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

The latest update to the Motor Vehicle Title Manual (attached) is now available via Registration and Title System workstations and at www.txdmv.gov.

We welcome your feedback and encourage you to email any comments or suggestions to VTR_Title_Reg-Manual-Update@txdmv.gov (please note the underscores between VTR and Title and Title and Reg).

Updates for this release are marked with red change bars in the text. 

Additionally, the following are brief summaries of the chapters updated in the July 2017 revision.

Chapter 7 – Corrections
Section 7.11, “Motor and Permanent VIN Errors,” was updated to clarify acceptable proof when two or less characters are incorrect in the vehicle identification number (VIN), and an error in data entry cannot be verified, or if the surrendered ownership evidence reflects the incorrect VIN. In these situations, a pencil tracing or photo of the VIN, Vehicle Inspection Report, or Law Enforcement Identification Number Inspection (Form VTR-68-A) can be used to verify the correct VIN.

Chapter 18 – Out of State Requirements
Section 18.9, “Apprehended Out of State Vehicles,” was removed from the Motor Vehicle Title Manual. This information continues to be provided in the Motor Vehicle Registration Manual.

Chapter 19 – Imported Vehicles
This chapter was revised and reorganized in an effort to provide clarification. 

Chapter 23 – Foreclosure of Miscellaneous Liens
Section 23.4, “Licensed Vehicle Storage Facility Lien,” was updated to include information provided in Registration and Title Bulletin (RTB) #003-17, which details changes to Occupations Code, Section 2303.151 and 2303.154, as a result of Senate Bill 1501. This change removes the time frame deadlines for notifications to be sent out by licensed vehicle storage facilities. Additionally, a notification to law enforcement is no longer required unless the law enforcement agency requires a notice of abandonment. 

Section 23.7, “Verification of Title and/or Registration,” was updated to include information provided in RTB #002-17, which details changes to Occupations Code, Chapter 2303, as a result of House Bill 1247. These changes affect the terms under which a county tax assessor-collector may accept a private entity’s title and/or registration verification in conjunction with licensed vehicle storage lien foreclosures.

Section 23.8, “Acceptable Proof of Notifications,” was updated to include information provided in RTB #003-17, which details items relating to Senate Bill 1501 that made changes to Occupations Code, Section 2303.151 and 2303.154, affecting licensed vehicle storage facility lien foreclosures. Senate Bill 1501 amends the sections from requiring proof of mailing and delivery to requiring only proof of mailing.

July 2017 Motor Vehicle Registration Manual Update

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

The latest update to the Motor Vehicle Registration Manual (attached) is now available via Registration and Title System (RTS) workstations and at www.txdmv.gov.

We welcome your feedback and encourage you to email any comments or suggestions to
VTR_Title_Reg-Manual-Update@txdmv.gov (please note the underscores between VTR and Title and Title and Reg).

Updates for this release are marked with red change bars in the text.

The following are brief summaries of some of the chapters updated in the July 2017 revision.

Chapter 12 – Off-Highway, Log Loader, Forestry, and Miscellaneous
Section 12.4, “Golf Carts and Utility Vehicles,” was updated due to changes from House Bill (HB) 2968 from the 85th Legislative Session that were effective immediately. Counties adjacent to a county that borders or contains a portion of the Guadalupe River and contains a part of a barrier island that borders the Gulf of Mexico, can now have a population of less than 37,000 and contain part of a peninsula that borders the Gulf of Mexico.

Chapter 14.2 – Application for Registration and Certain Permits
Section 14.2, “Application for Registration and Certain Permits,” was updated to include subcontractor locations (limited service deputies) as entities with the ability to process registration renewals for individuals that received a Vehicle Inspection and Registration Notice in lieu of their Registration Renewal Notice. This change was due to the RTS Release 8.9.0, which added a barcode to this notice. Note: Section 22.5, “Registration Renewal Notice,” was also updated with this information along with the image of the notice.

Section 14.2 and Section 14.10, “License Plate or Registration Insignia Replacement,” was updated due to changes from HB 2663 from the 85th Legislative Session that were effective immediately. The county tax assessor-collector may now determine whether the replacement fee is charged for license plates and/or registration stickers that were issued by mail, if the owner did not receive their license plates and/or sticker.
