The Texas Department of Transportation will be giving Texas drivers a chance to say more on personalized plates in the near future. The current plate only gives you six letters, but the new plates will give you more options.

My Plates, which sells state authorized specialty plates announced today that some plates will be expanded to seven characters starting March 7.

Freedom, which is what the new seven character plate category is called, will run through March 14.

This will change the six character options on plates, which have been in place since 1965. There are 19 backgrounds available with the Freedom plates, including colleges and universities, organizations, professional sports teams and others.
