Texas Plates

Just curious, any fellow Texans that have vanity plates know how long it takes to get them? The site says 3-4 weeks to arrive at the tax office, just wondering if it actually takes that long or if that's just a buffer estimate. I didn't order custom plates, just the black background/white star with a randomized character combo.

I ordered the UF plate and it took over a month to get here.

Damn. I was hoping to get them before my registration is up on the 5th, but it's not looking that way. Oh well. Thanks!

Mine ended up at the tax office about 3.5 weeks after I ordered them. My tags had just expired and I didn't wanna go over the 5 day grace period, so I ended up renewing my registration online, and literally the next day the new plates arrived at the tax office

So I had to wait until my renewed tags came in the mail before I could pick up the new plates

It depends on whether you want them personalized or just get a randomized combo of letters/numbers, and also how many years you purchase.

I got a randomized plate with the black background for 1 year and it was $50. Below are the prices.

Randomized 1YR: $50
Randomized 3YR: $130
Randomized 5YR: $175

Personalized 1YR: $150
Personalized 3YR: $400
Personalized 5YR: $450

You can go to myplates.com and see all the plates they have and customize them.
