DPS suspends online sales of temporary license plates
The Texas Department of Public Safety has suspended online sales of temporary license plates as they address security enhancements.
Recently, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles began fighting back against fictitious license plates. In April, the agency started rolling out new temporary tags that'll stop the phony ones from falling through the cracks.
Now, DPS is working on more security upgrades, but those will remain confidential for security reasons.
Temporary tags can still be obtained through TxDMV Regional Service Centers and county tax assessor-collector offices.
