This is to inform you that 25 vendor (My Plates) plates have been discontinued due to low sales. In an effort to manage our vendor plate inventory, vendor’s plates must maintain active registration of at least 200 plates to stay in the program. Likewise, new vendor plates must have at least 200 pre-orders in order for the license plates to be produced.
Customers with discontinued plates may keep them for the one, three, five, or ten-year plate term purchased. Upon expiration of the purchase term, customers will be required to choose a different specialty plate or obtain general issue license plates. My Plates has informed customers of their options via email and/or letter.
The Registration and Title System (RTS) will continue to allow replacement plates to be issued; however, the plate term will not change. RTS will stop the specialty plates from being renewed at the end of the plate term.
Please note that only the vendor plates are being discontinued. The state’s specialty and military plates are not being discontinued.
We are listing the discontinued vendor plates on the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) website. For a quick view, using the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser, the website allows plates to be sorted by “Discontinued” at this link: http://txdmv.gov/motorists/license-plates/specialty-license-plates/itemlist/filter?category=92&moduleId=185&Itemid=145
