Please review and distribute as appropriate.
 
The following listserv was sent out on December 7, 2009, along with an attached flyer *Always Read the T* from My Plates.  Both the listserv and the flyer state that the *T for Texas* license plate could have six alphanumeric characters in addition to the graphic *T* as part of the plate number; however, that option will not be available until spring of 2010.  Currently the plate is only available with five alphanumeric characters in addition to the graphic *T* as part of the
plate number.  

============================================================

Listserv dated December 7, 2009 (revised December 18, 2009, to specify five alphanumeric characters in addition to the graphic *T* as part of the plate number):
 
NOTE:  This listserv clarifies the number of alphanumeric characters currently allowed for the *T for Texas* specialty license plate from six to five.

Please review and distribute as appropriate.  

The *T FOR TEXAS* specialty license plate is unique due to the graphic *T* actually being the lead character of the license plate number.  Consequently the *T* must also be included with the standard alpha-numeric characters when inquiring by plate number (e.g. TLINDA, TLUVBUG, etc.). Failure to do so will return incorrect plate information or no record at all.

As of November 19, 2009, the marketing vendor, My Plates, began offering a second specialty license plate design featuring the T FOR TEXAS slogan.  Like the first design, a large stylized *T* is featured on the far left side of the plate against a contrasting background. The plate may have up to six alphanumeric characters in addition to the graphic *T* as part of the plate number.  Attached is a guideline on how to read the *T* plates.

If you have any questions or need any additional information please contact your local Vehicle Titles and Registration Division Regional Office.

Thanks,
