Texas rejected 3,800 personalized license plates in 2018
Various License Plates from Across The United States of America

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — They’ve been deemed too political or tasteless and…. no we’re not referencing radio talk show hosts.

About 3,800 proposals for personalized license plates were rejected last year by the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles.

The denied license plate messages included offensive, uncouth, racist, derogatory or overtly political messages.

Included on the list of vetoed plates, THE PREZ, CNN FAKE and HII UGLY.

There is a Texas Administrative Code that DMV workers use to review license plate applications.

They watch for any allusion to gangs or illegal activities, implied threats of harm and indecent references.

If your request is rejected, you can appeal in writing. It takes Texas DMV officials about a month to reach a final decision.
