Previously reserved My Plate messages now up for grabs

AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you are looking to make a one-of-a-kind statement on Central Texas roadways, we may have just the thing for you.

My Plates announced it will be releasing license plate messages that were previously reserved but are now up for immediate sale. Some of these messages have previously been offered for sale by auction, and many of the seven-letter messages have never appeared on a Texas plate before.

There are over 80 plates available in the first batch of plates up for sale.

My Plates President Steve Farrar told KXAN that the biggest reason people don’t buy a plate is because their preferred message is gone, but now with these new plates, there are more options.

The plates cost around $195 for a one-year term — or almost $500 for a five-year term.

Since November 2009, Texans have bought more than 237,000 My Plates, putting more than $30 million in the General Revenue Fund. That money helps pay for services for all Texans. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
