In what regards?

There are hundreds of characteristics of a given suburb, in which the three listed differ. You need to ask an answerable question.

They are all large suburbs with significant variation. Neighborhood matters more than which city it is in. If you are in the Breckinridge Park area where all 3 meet you would have a hard time distinguishing any difference at all.

Plano is 2.5 times the population of Richardson, and for the most part doesn't have a terrible area of Dallas as its southeastern border.

Garland is also 2.5 times the population of Richardson, but Richardson is a major DFW employment corridor and as such has many more desirable areas than Garland, which is not home to a major DFW employment corridor.

Overall, Plano>Richardson>Garland. However, all three towns have some exclusive areas, average areas and below average areas. Garland has whole lot more of below average areas than other two.

Garland has a far better DMV. The one in Plano sucks.

And of course by "DMV" you probably mean "DPS"

Plano and Richardson are more laid out east/west, while Garland is north/south.

Plano and Richardson probably have more tech businesses while Garland has more industrial type jobs.

All three have DART light rail stations and bus service.

Garland population ~ 226,876 (2015)
Plano population ~ 269,776 (2012)
Richardson population ~ 99,223 (2010)

I live in far east Plano and I shop in Plano, Richardson, and Garland. All three have a Half Price Books store that I love. All three have restaurants that I love.

Pick a neighborhood that you like that is close to your job.
