"The Texas Classic" for Trucks
To provide you with information on the availability of "The Texas Classic" license plate for trucks and how to process any existing stock of truck plates in RTS.
The Registration and Title System (RTS) will now accommodate the issuance of "The Texas Classic" license plate for trucks.
To accommodate issuance of the new license plate for both passenger vehicles and trucks, "PASSENGER-TRUCK PLT" has been added as a new License Plate Type in RTS and will be the default Plate Type.
As a reminder, "The Texas Classic" license plate will be issued to both passenger vehicles and trucks, eliminating the need for dual inventory. Please do not issue "The Texas Classic" license plate until your current inventory of "Passenger" and "Truck" plates are depleted. We appreciate your support in order to avoid waste.
When processing transactions where new general issue license plates (passenger or truck) are issued, the Plate Type will default to "PASSENGER-TRUCK PLT" for both passenger vehicles and trucks.
Until your existing stock of the current (blue sky) "Truck" inventory is exhausted, it will be necessary for you to change the Plate Type on the Class/Plate/Sticker Type Choice Screen to "TRUCK PLT".
RTS will not allow the "blue sky" truck license plate pattern unless you change the Plate Type to TRUCK PLT.
If you are using your remaining stock of (blue sky) license plates for passenger vehicles it will not be necessary to change from the "PASSENGER-TRUCK PLT" default.
If you have questions, please contact your local TxDMV Regional Service Center.
