AUSTIN (AP) – Texas drivers with more to say on their personalized license plates beyond the current six numbers and letters will have more options.

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

The vendor for the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles says the offer, for the new seven-character plate category called Freedom, will run through early March 14.

Texans since 1965 have had only six characters or fewer available for personalization.

Freedom plates are available on 19 background designs offered by My Plates, with a one-year price of $395.
