  • S.B. 2012 would provide an exemption to Texas’ two license plate requirement for vehicles unable to display a front license plate.
  • S.B. 2012 would protect the aesthetic contours of cars and relieve vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on original bumpers.
  • S.B. 2012 would accommodate classic and special-interest vehicles, many of which are not originally equipped with a designated place to display a front plate.
  • S.B. 2012 would allow greater performance and styling equipment options for automotive enthusiasts in the state and the industry supporting their hobby.

Overview: SAN-supported legislation (S.B. 2012) has been introduced in Texas to allow the display of only a single, rear-mounted license plate for passenger vehicles if the vehicle is unable to display a front license plate. The bill passed the Senate Transportation Committee and awaits consideration by the full Senate.
