Most CHL/LEO contacts are positive, how about yours? Bloopers are fun, but no names please, if it will cause a LEO problems!

As of November 1, 2016, the State of Texas no longer automatically requires you replace your plates after 7 years. You can still request (and pay for) at your county tax office for replacement plates if the license plate needs to be replaced for cosmetic or readability reasons.

Didn't know the law had changed. Now in addition to all the administrative add-ons for re-registration we get to pay for new plates. LOL

I think the law changed when they started allowing the customized plates by the third party vendor MyPlates.com.

I know my veterans plates are transferable from vehicle to vehicle. I put the same plates on my new truck that were on my old truck a couple of months ago. I don't know how it's supposed to work but they sent me regular plates with my registration. I went down to the tax office and filled out the forms to move my old plates to my new truck. Veterans plates are free to get but I have not found out yet if they are free when you want new ones...

...It is much more likely that they typed the LP into the MDT and made a mistake typing. The return comes back to a different car and they stop it to check it out.
I would put money on this. I got stopped by a cop in Beeville because my plates didn't match my truck. He was interested in my four door F350 because its popular with smugglers, and when the plates didn't match. When I showed him my CHL, he frowned, asked me to wait a moment, and went back to run the plates again. When he came back he apologized and said he had transposed two digits the first time so of course a different vehicle came back.
