 United States (U.S.) Army Plate Redesigned

At the request of the U.S. Army, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicle (TxDMV) recently redesigned all U.S. Army license plates, which include the Disabled Veteran U.S. Army; Honorably Discharged U.S. Army; Retired U.S. Army; and U.S. Army license plates. All U.S. Army license plate designs were changed by replacing the Army seal with the Army star emblem.

Army Emblem Used on Old Plate Designs New Plate Designs

 

The U.S. Army license plate(s) currently displayed on your vehicle need to be replaced with the redesigned U.S. Army license plate(s). Beginning January 1, 2019, the TxDMV will begin the replacement process. Replacement license plate(s) will be mailed to you a few weeks after you renew your vehicle registration, at no additional charge. Your license plate number will not change.

Please remove the old license plate(s) from your vehicle upon receipt of the new license plate(s). Please deface the old license plates in a manner that renders them unusable by others or return the old plate(s) to your County Tax Assessor-Collector office for destruction.

Please contact TxDMV Special Plates Unit staff at (512) 374-5010 if you have any questions.

New Law Regarding Certified Copies of Title (CCO)

On January 1, 2019, a new law related to Certified Copies of Title (CCOs) will take effect. Senate Bill 2076 passed by the 85th Legislature amended Transportation Code, Section 501.134(d), to provide that a lawfully obtained CCO supersedes and invalidates any previously issued title or certified copy.

This change will become effective in the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles system at the start of business on December 31, 2018.

Texas Dealers who take vehicles in on trade should be particularly aware of this change.
