Texas License Plates & Placards

You must register your vehicle in the county where you currently live. After completing registration process, a registration sticker will be issued that must be displayed on the vehicle’s windshield or on the rear license plate of a motorcycle or moped.

As part of your vehicle registration, the department will assign a set of general-issue license plates. The plate number designated to you by TxDMV cannot be personalized. Texas law requires vehicles to have a front and rear license plate.

If a license plate is lost, stolen, or mutilated, an application for a replacement plate must be completed (VTR-60 Application for Replacement License Plate(s), and/or Vehicle Registration Sticker) and payment of the required fee. Replacement plates are available through your local county tax assessor-collector’s office.
