License Plates with Enhanced Security Features in Production

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

Texas license plates are now being produced with a new type of high definition (HD) sheeting to provide increased reflectivity and visibility.  The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) website will be updated with an example of the new plate image.

The HD sheeting will be more visible at night, which will benefit law enforcement and motorists.  In addition to increased reflectivity, the sheeting is expected to produce better quality graphics since it was designed for use with the all-digital manufacturing process implemented for all Texas license plates in 2009.

Additionally, the HD sheeting incorporates slight changes to the security features:

  • The vertical security threads contain a new dotted pattern
  • The round circular patterns in the center area contain the TxDMV star logo
  • There is a new security feature running vertically near the right edge of the plate with a repeating “1T” pattern

License plates manufactured with the new sheeting will gradually make their way onto Texas roadways as production that uses the sheeting has just begun.

If you have any questions, please contact your local TxDMV Regional Service Center.

Thank you,
