Honorable Mentions:

Houston Texans, #1 Sports Team: While the Texans came in at #6 overall, they ranked #1 in the Sports Team category, nearly doubling the sales of the Dallas Cowboys plates, which came in at #2.

San Antonio Spurs, #1 NBA Team: The Spurs were the top-selling NBA plate, with the Houston Rockets climbing up to the #2 spot. Perhaps there is some correlation between My Plates sales and team performance, as the teams reached the NBA finals and playoffs, respectively, this year.

Texas A&M University, #1 College/University: The Aggies, #9 overall, also retain the #1 spot as the best-selling college/university plate for the second year in a row. They hold the #2 spot as well. The University of Texas is ranked #4, behind Texas Tech.

For every $1 it spends, the TxDMV returns $10 to build and maintain highways, roads and bridges and provide needed services to Texans. The agency registers more than 23 million vehicles; regulates vehicle dealers; credentials buses and big trucks for intrastate and interstate commerce; issues oversize and overweight permits; and awards grants to law enforcement agencies to reduce vehicle burglaries and thefts.

-“Specialty” plate refers to any official license plate other than the state’s general issue plate.
-Specialty plates can be “personalized” plates, but they don’t have to be.
-My Plates and TxDMV use only “specialty” and “personalized” to refer to these plates, not “vanity,” which is pejorative and lacks accuracy.
