To mark the 100th anniversary of the standardized Texas license plate design, implemented in 1917, the TxDMV introduced a special 100 year plate.
Texans who want to show their state pride by displaying this plate on their vehicle must order before the end of August 2018.
“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,” said TxDMV executive Director Whitney Brewster.
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.
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 words “TEXAS” on a white background just as it is on the current general-issue plate.
