AUSTIN (AP) — New Texas license plates will look a lot like the black-and-white versions from the 1960s.
The Department of Motor Vehicles says the state's 254 counties must exhaust current supplies before getting the new "Texas Classic" plate.
The agency, on its website Wednesday, said the plate issued this month is designed for the highest public safety protection.
The current license plate, from 2009, is colorful with a blue mountain range and a Texas map.
The new plate is black and white with vertical-running security threads in the sheeting. The threads will help law officers better identify a legitimate plate from a distance.
Letters and numbers will be an inch wide and slightly taller. The new plates will also feature three letters followed by four numbers, instead of the current mix.
