Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bill into law Monday, ending the state’s temporary paper license tag system. The new law will replace all paper tags with metal ones starting Jul 1, 2025. An investigative report by NBC 5 in Dallas exposed how criminals obtained car dealer licenses to access the DMV’s online system and then print and sell fraudulent paper tags. They used some of those tags on cars involved in serious crimes.
