These documents contain text of correspondence sent by TxDOT to the county tax assessor-collectors, statutory agents who provide vehicle registration and titling services for citizens in Texas. This information is provided to apprise the general public of issues affecting the state's vehicle titling and registration process.


To inform you of the provisions of House Bill 1781 (copy attached), enacted by the 80th Legislature, Regular Session, 2007.


House Bill 1781, effective September 1, 2007, amends Texas Transportation Code, Section 681.0031(b), by changing the information recorded on disabled parking placards to include county number. The following information is now required to be recorded on disabled parking placards in this order:

  • county number
  • the first four digits of the applicant's driver's license or personal identification number
  • the applicant's initials

We have revised the disabled parking placards to accommodate the required information and will ship new inventory upon depletion of existing stock.


Please record required information accordingly in the block designated for "DL."


If you have any questions or need any additional information, please contact your local Vehicle Titles and Registration Division Regional Office.

In some cases the Registration and Title Bulletins (RTB) contain attachments. If you require a copy of the original signed RTB and the attachments, please e-mail us and include the RTB number. Repeat requests are subject to charges in accordance with Open Record policies.
