The Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) has notified us that a license plate manufacturing and shipping delay will begin today as a result of a prison lockdown of the unit responsible for these services.
We are monitoring this situation closely and are investigating various options to ensure adequate forms stock and general issue plate inventory is available to fill county orders.
If you receive an inquiry from a customer who has ordered specialty license plates, please assure them that the plates will be manufactured, but there may be an additional delay before they can be delivered.
Thank you for your help in distributing this information and we will update you periodically on the status.

Vehicle Titles and Registration Division
