It’s been 10 years and Texas license plates really need a new look


Since 2012 Texas drivers had the standard white license plate issued for everyone in the state. Many people have strong opinions about whether it looks good or not.

One YouTuber in particular, Huggbees, uploaded a video in which he roasts all 50 state license plates. If you want to hear his opinions on Texas, skip to around 11:11 p.m. in the video.

His views on what he thinks of the Texas plate can be described by this image:

Now ignoring all the other strong things he has to say; I have to say… I agree with Huggbees.

Texas has had many different models in the past; that’s surprisingly how much the current design resembled the classic design. (But not necessarily in a good way either)

My particular favorites were the Lone Star Plate

Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TXDMV)

Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TXDMV)

and the Panoramic.

Basically the ones we had BEFORE the changes.

These designs had a POP look. They looked colorful, simple and effective. But now…it’s just a standard white plate but a tiny little Texas symbol and a star on the top left (which are SO SMALL you couldn’t see anyway unless you were directly behind someone ‘a).

Now, of course, you CAN get your custom design or a special plaque; but you would have to pay for it to be done. Even then…you have to be careful that he follows the guidelines; lest you be arrested by the Texas cops.

This only reinforces my opinion; we should have a normal and better looking license plate in the state of Texas. Bring back the classic designs from the 2000s or design a newer one that can show off the beauty of Texas well.

Of course, this is only MY opinion…
