Saw a new Texas license plate with 7 digits

I was picking up my personalized plates and there was a Hummer with the new design and 7 digits in the parking lot.

No, I don't think so. If they were, I couldn't figure it out. They told me when I ordered a few weeks ago I couldn't get personalized with 7. Of course, alot can change in a few weeks...

Here's what was on my application... I couild have added the Texas symbol or dash in the middle, but that's about it.

"Passenger car and light truck plates are limited to six (6) letters and numbers but may display eight (8) characters total, including the disabled person symbol, or punctuation characters."

How did you do that! Every time I go to TXDOT on internet, it won't let you do more than 6 characters. Do you have to go to the county main office and submit it yourself, because websit is not updated yet?

A guy rotating my tires asked me about it and his co-worker slapped him and said 5th Generation you dummy... He just shook his head and said I know, but what does it mean.

Of couse when I told him it was on the wrong car, he wanted to see the Maro as soon as I got it...

Yes. I went to the office and did the application there. I couldn't do it online.

I notice that they'll only take 6 characters total, but with 1 or 2 spaces, but looks like they won't take just 7 or 8 characters total.

You can do it once you are ready to order. If what you want is available and you click to order a new screen comes up and you enter your selection with the spaces or symbols.

As of 2 weeks ago only 6 for personalized.
Some new GENERAL plates have 7.

Windshield=10" vertical

that means that the mirror is 38.75% the size of the vertical windshield...
it sure seems like the ratio could be better... just sayin....

I swear....you're plates might go missing in NO TIME!
I was going to get this done (as I've been wanting to do it for years), but they won't allow it yet. Right now, you can personalize with 6 characters and it's on the old plates only. You can not personalize the new, darker colored plates. New plates are 7 digits. They tried giving them to me a few days ago when I registered my Camaro. I had my vanity plates so they took them back. The new ones are hard to read....that's for sure.

Nah, I wouldn't do that to you!

I guess if anyone hears any thing about more than 6 character plates, let me know. And I will do the same on this thread.

i hate the new plate design. It looks like rainbows from far away and it's going to make an all black car look ridiculous.
