Texas requires both, plus you can't have any obstruction around the plates. The police have to be able to see the word TEXAS on the plate.

Correctamundo! Although there are plenty of people rolling around here without a front plate, cops usually won't harass you about it unless you get pulled over for something else.

when you go to the BMV or DMV or whatever you call it. ask them for paperwork for vanity plates. I just never changed them from my Iroc so I put them on my cobalt.
