Many License Plate Covers are Illegal in Texas

If you add anything to your license plate, you could be violating Texas law and inviting unwanted police contact and a potential ticket.  Many of us unknowingly buy vehicles with or add license plate brackets that obscure portions of the license plate or add a clear plastic cover to keep it clean.

Any blurring or reflective matter added that affects the readability is illegal and a license plate cover that obscures one-half or more of the name of the state or obscures any letters, numbers, or the color of the plate is illegal.

To be sure you are not violating the law or inviting a police contact, make sure that all you have attached to your vehicle is the license plate as issued and that all license plate lights are working properly.
