WT-Branded License Plates Now Available for Texas Drivers


CANYON, Texas — Faithful Buffs can now wear their pride on their bumper.

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles is now offering WT-branded plates for in-state passenger vehicles. The plates, which can be ordered at any tax assessor office in the state or through MyPlates.com, feature WT’s “spirit” logo, the official branding adopted in 2020.

“We’re thankful that the Texas DMV has added this option for our faithful Buffs,” said Ronnie Hall, executive director of the WT Alumni Association. “Not only will they be able to share their pride in their University wherever they travel, the WT brand will continue to grow all around the state.”

Plates ordered online will be delivered to the purchaser’s county tax assessor office for pickup.

Plates are $30 per year. They also may be personalized with up to six characters for $70 per year.

Fostering a connection with the community it serves is a key maxim of the University’s long-range plan, WT 125: From the Panhandle to the World.

That plan is fueled by the historic, $125 million One West comprehensive fundraising campaign. To date, the five-year campaign — which publicly launched in September 2021 — has raised more than $110 million.
