I'm a Texas resident and currently out of state with my vehicle. How do I renew my registration if I am not in Texas?

Answer: You can renew your registration by “self-certifying” as the vehicle owner, that you are entitled to renew your Texas registration, but you and your vehicle are currently out-of-state and you are unable to complete the required Texas vehicle inspection. This is common with active duty military who are on assignment outside of Texas.

You can renew your registration and waive the Texas vehicle inspection requirement either online or by mail.

  1. Online: by self-certifying you are out-of-state (pre-requisites apply)
  2. By mail: submit the following to your local county tax office in Texas if you are not eligible to renew online:
    • Renewal notice, vehicle identification number or plate number
    • Copy of owner's current driver license or government-issued photo identification
    • Copy of proof of current vehicle insurance
    • Written statement indicating the vehicle is out-of-state
    • Fees: Contact your local county tax office for exact amount and payment methods

To ensure you do not receive a ticket or have to pay penalty fees, you will need to have your vehicle inspected within 3 days after returning to Texas. Also, we recommend you keep the inspection report in your vehicle to prove you have completed it if you are stopped by law enforcement.

I'm new to Texas. How do I title/register my vehicle and get my driver's license?

Answer: Welcome to our great state! There are 4 steps to title and register your vehicle in Texas as a new Texas resident. The steps must be followed in the order listed:

  • Step 1: Obtain Texas vehicle insurance
    • Some out of state insurance policies may be acceptable. We recommend you contact your insurance agent for assistance
  • Step 2: Obtain a Texas vehicle inspection at any state inspection station within your new county of residence
    • Proof of vehicle insurance will be required at the time of inspection
    <li">Step 3: Apply for a Texas title and/or registration in person at your local county tax office. Take the following with you:
  • Step 4: Apply for a Texas driver license through the Texas Department of Public Safety
    • Information for new residents is available on their website

Be sure to register your vehicle within 30-days of moving to Texas; otherwise, penalty fees may apply.

How do I check the status of my registration renewal?

Answer: You can check the status of your registration renewal through our online renewal tracking tool Dude Where's My Sticker if you completed your renewal online. The tracker will tell you WHEN IT WAS MAILED to you, not when you should receive it. If the registration renewal was submitted:

  • By mail: Please allow up to two weeks for delivery by the US Postal Service. If has been more than 2 weeks since the mailing date on the online tracking tool and you have not received your registration, you can contact your local county tax office.
  • Online: You will receive a confirmation email after you complete the online renewal process that will serve as your proof of registration until the sticker arrives. Be sure to keep the confirmation in your vehicle in case you are stopped by law enforcement. You may contact your local county tax office if you do not receive your renewal and it has been 2 weeks since the mailing date or if you need more information.

What is the difference between the owner on record and the renewal recipient?

Answer: The owner on record is a person that is responsible for the vehicle, owns and receives all correspondence.

A renewal recipient is someone who may be able to renew the vehicle registration only and if different from the owner on record will receive only the renewal notice.

A common example when the owner on record is different from the renewal recipient is when the owner on record is the parent and the renewal recipient is their child who is in college and lives at another address.

How do I update my address?

Answer: To change the address on your vehicle record, a completed Address Change Form will need to be submitted in person to your local county tax office or mailed in to the address listed on the form. Please note, the Title Document field on the form is not required.

The online option does not change the address for the owner on record, only the renewal recipient. This means if the owner of the vehicle in our vehicle registration system does not have the same address as the renewal recipient, the registration renewal notice and the registration sticker will be sent to the renewal recipient address and all other correspondence will be mailed to the owner's address on record.

A common example of this situation is the vehicle owner is the parent and the renewal recipient is their child who is in college and lives at another address. Any toll violations or notifications to the owner will be sent to the address on file for the owner, not the renewal recipient.

If you want to change the renewal recipient address, click here.

How do I get a copy of my Texas title?

Answer: If your Texas title is lost or never received, a replacement title can be obtained in person or by mail through a Texas Department of Motor Vehicles Regional Service Center. A replacement is referred to as a Certified Copy of Title. Keep in mind, Texas cannot issue a replacement title for another state.

To obtain a replacement title, submit the following in person or by mail to a Texas Department of Motor Vehicles Regional Service Center:

Regional Service Center locations are listed on page 2 of the application. Requests submitted by mail must be sent to the Wichita Falls Regional Service Center address.

I purchased a vehicle more than 30 days ago from a dealer. Where are my plates and title?

Answer: A Texas dealer is responsible for processing title and registration on behalf of their customer within 30 days of the date of purchase or 45 days if seller financed (they provide the financing).

If it has been 30 days and you have not received your title and/or registration, you can file a dealer complaint against the dealer.

Our Enforcement Division investigates complaints against licensed dealers. You may submit a dealer complaint online. Once you have submitted the complaint you will receive a reply email with a case number. You will need the case number to track your complaint status. Complaints are assigned to an investigator in the order received. Please allow up to 3 weeks for the complaint to be assigned to an investigator. The investigator will reach out to you for more information, if needed.

If the buyer's temporary tag expires before the complaint is settled, we recommend you purchase a 30 day temporary permit to put on your vehicle at your local county tax office or Regional Service Center.

How do I renew my vehicle registration?

Answer: Texans have several options available to renew their registration.

  • Step 1: Obtain a Texas vehicle inspection at any state inspection station within the owner's/renewal recipient's county of residence, no earlier than 90 days prior to the registration expiration
    • Proof of vehicle insurance will be required at time of inspection
    • Visit our website to find out when to inspect
  • Step 2: Renew the vehicle registration one of three ways:
  • NOTE: You will need to go in person to your county tax office if:
    • You received a citation for expired registration (a 20% registration penalty fee applies)
    • Your registration is expired (online renewal is allowed up to 6 months after expiration)
    • There is a hold on your registration due to certain unpaid fines, fees, or taxes

    • ONLINE OPTION:
    • We recommend waiting at least 24 hours after obtaining a passing inspection to renew online
      • Click here to renew online
      • A payment confirmation receipt email will be sent immediately to you if the online renewal is successful
      • Approximately 3 business days later, a second email will be sent to you advising you if the renewal was approved
      • If approved, the email will include a receipt that may be used as temporary proof of registration, while the sticker is in the mail process which may take up to 2 weeks to receive. Keep this in your vehicle in case you are stopped by law enforcement.

    • COUNTY TAX OFFICE OPTION:
    • Submit the following in person or by mail to the owner's/renewal recipient's local county tax office:

    • GROCERY STORE OR OTHER APPROVED LOCATIONS OPTION (varies by county):
    • The same items are required as if you were renewing in person at the county tax office; however, you must have the Renewal Notice or the Inspection and Registration Notice to renew at one of these locations.

What is needed for someone to renew the registration on behalf of the owner?

Answer: The owner(s) on record will need to provide the person renewing on their behalf the following items to take to the local county tax office:

  • Written authorization (this can be a simple note)
    • Some county tax offices have a required authorization form that must be completed by you. We recommend calling your local county tax office to see if one is required.
  • Their current government issued photo identification.
  • Proof of your current insurance (copy)
  • Proof of current Texas vehicle inspection (copy)
  • Fees: Contact your local county tax office for exact fee amount and payment methods

I never received the renewal notice. Do I need the renewal notice to renew my registration?

How do I get a temporary permit?

Answer: Temporary permits can be obtained in person through your local county tax office or Regional Service Center.

What kind of temporary permit do I need?

Answer: The most common reasons for a temporary permit are when a customer purchased a vehicle with expired registration, there are no plates on the vehicle, or the customer is waiting to receive their license plates. A Temporary Permit allows temporary operation of a vehicle without registration and must be purchased in person. It cannot be used in place of regular registration.

To obtain a temporary permit, submit the following in person to your local county tax office or Texas Department of Motor Vehicles Regional Service Center:

72-hr and 144-hr permits are only available for commercial vehicles being used in Texas. These types of permits may be obtained online.

Although a Texas vehicle inspection is not a requirement to purchase a permit, it is required to operate the vehicle on public roads. The only exception is for vehicles with a one-trip permit. A Texas inspection can be obtained at any state inspection station within your county of residence.

I moved out of Texas. What do I do with my license plates?

Answer: We are sorry to hear that you left Texas, but hope that you are settling into your new home. Your Texas license plates are yours to keep. Consider them a souvenir from our great state and something to remember us by. Should you choose to recycle your old Texas plates, cut them into pieces and place them in the recycle bin. This will prevent fraudulent use of the plates.

I lost or misplaced my registration receipt. How do I get another?

Answer: If your registration receipt was lost or misplaced, you can get a duplicate receipt either in person or by mail. You will need to submit the following to request a duplicate receipt:

  • Completed Request for Information Form
  • Copy of applicant's current driver license or government-issued photo identification
  • $2.00 Fee:
    • If you are submitting to the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles you can pay by check or money order payable to TxDMV (cash accepted in person, not in the mail)
    • If you are submitting to the county tax office, you will need to contact your local county tax office for their acceptable payment methods
  • By mail: Mail to the address on the form. NOTE: this is a valid address even though there is no street name, and you may overnight your request to that address to expedite mail time
  • In person: Visit your local county tax office or a Texas Department of Motor Vehicles Regional Service Center
  • Commercial vehicles are required to have the receipt in the vehicles at all times. However, for all other vehicles, it is recommended the registration receipt be retained in the vehicle, as it serves as proof of registration.

    Why am I being charged twice for the inspection?

    Answer: Texas inspection fees are collected in two steps, but rest assured, you are not being charged twice for an inspection. The inspection station receives their portion of the fee at the time of inspection. The state collects its portion of the fee at the time of registration.

    Inspections are verified electronically, so your inspection station cannot charge you more than their portion of the fee. The remaining state's portion of the fee is collected by your county tax office at the time of your renewal.

    My vehicle was salvaged. What do I need to do to get it on the road again?

    Answer: When a vehicle is considered salvage, there are several steps to get it rebuilt and back on the road. The steps must be followed in the order listed:

    Step 1:Apply for a Salvage Vehicle Title by mailing the following to the address on the form:

    You should receive the Salvage Vehicle Title within 3 weeks.

    • Completed Replacement Plates/Sticker Application if submitting by mail or the vehicle information (vehicle identification number or license plate number) if submitting in person
    • Copy of owner's current driver license or government-issued photo identification
    • $6.50 replacement fee (check or money order) payable to the county tax office. Cash is accepted in person. We recommend you contact your local county tax office for all payment methods. Under certain circumstances the county may waive the replacement fee.

    How do I let the DMV know I no longer own a vehicle?

    Answer: To protect yourself from liability, you should complete a vehicle transfer notification within 30 days from the date of sale. You may still submit a vehicle transfer notification after the 30 days from the date of sale, but it does not guarantee release from liability. Keep in mind the information on the motor vehicle record will remain the same until the new owner transfers the title into their name.

    You can submit the vehicle transfer notification using one of these options:

    I just purchased a Trailer. How do I title/register my Trailer?

    Answer: There are specific requirements for titling and registering trailers in Texas and it can seem a bit complicated. Registration is always required for a trailer, but the need for a title is based on the trailer weight. If the trailer is over 4,000 pounds gross weight (empty plus carrying capacity) it must be titled, but if it is 4,000 pounds gross weight (empty plus carrying capacity) or less, titling is optional. If the trailer was previously titled, it must continue to be titled.

    There are exceptions for Farm Trailers:

    • Title is required if it is over 34,000 pounds gross weight or was previously titled
    • Title is optional if it is 34,000 pounds gross weight or less
    • Registration is optional if the farm trailer is 4,000 pounds gross weight or less
    • Farm trailers are exempt from inspection

    You will need to take the following to the applicant's local county tax office in order to title/register the trailer:

    • Evidence of ownership – Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin, title, bill of sale, or out-of-state registration receipt
    • Completed Title and/or Registration Application
      • Check the Non-titled box if the trailer will not be titled
    • Completed Trailer Verification Statement of Fact
      • Only required if the trailer is being titled and is:
        • A new travel trailer or park model trailer
        • Any travel trailer or park model trailer last titled/registered out-of-state
        • Any homemade trailer being titled for the first time/li>
    • Weight Certificate, if applicable
      • Required for all out-of-state trailers, unless the empty weight is shown on the out-of-state title or Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin
    • Applicant's current driver license or government-issued photo identification
    • Proof of current inspection, if applicable
      • Inspection is required for trailers over 7,500 pounds gross weight (farm trailers exempt)
      • Inspect your trailer at any state inspection station within your county of residence. Look for stations with a TL or TLMC endorsement remark. We recommend contacting the inspection station to confirm they still conduct trailer inspections
      • Click here to view inspection criteria for trailers. Proof of insurance for the vehicle pulling the trailer will be required at time of inspection
    • Fees: Contact your local county tax office for the exact fee amount and payment methods

    Titled trailers require a vehicle identification number. If the trailer does not have a vehicle identification number (common for homemade trailers):

    What are my options if I bought a vehicle without a title?

    Answer: If you are unable to obtain the proper documents to complete a vehicle title transfer, there are still three options available to apply for a Texas title. They are:

    Bonded title process: You will need to submit a completed Bonded Title Statement of Fact Form, copy of applicant's current driver license or government-issued photo identification and a $15 fee, in person (check, cash or money order) or by mail (check or money order) to the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles Regional Service Center to determine eligibility.

    Court order: You can petition a county or district court to award ownership. Sample petitions and information about obtaining a court order are available on our website. We recommend you seek legal advice from a private attorney, if needed

    Tax Collector Hearing: This is a limited service. Contact your local county tax office to see if they offer this option and for the requirements.

    I bought a vehicle from an individual (private party). What do I do now?

    Answer: Congratulations on your purchase! Be sure to complete your title transfer within 30-days from the date of sale; otherwise, penalty fees may apply.

    To apply for title and registration, submit the following in person to your local county tax office:

    What do I need to transfer ownership from a deceased owner?

    Answer: The evidence required for transferring ownership depends on whether the deceased owner's estate is probated. When the estate goes through probate, the court will name an Executor/Executrix or Administrator and provide Letters Testamentary or Letters of Administration as proof of ownership. If the estate is not probated, an Heirship Affidavit is required.

    In either scenario, to apply for title and/or registration, here are the documents the applicant will need to submit in person to their local county tax office:

    • Title, if available
    • Evidence the loan is paid in full (original release of lien), if applicable
    • Completed Title and/or Registration Application
    • Appropriate authority to transfer ownership
      • Estate is probated: Provide the original or certified copy of Letters Testamentary or Letters of Administration

      • Refer to page 2 for additional instructions
    • Applicant's current driver license or government-issued photo identification
    • Proof of current vehicle insurance (required if applying for registration)
    • Proof of current vehicle inspection (required if the registration is expired and you would like to register the vehicle)
    • Fees: Contact your local county tax office for exact fee amount and payment methods

    icon note Hurricane Harvey Emergency Information

    The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) is monitoring the impacts of Hurricane Harvey closely and working with state officials, county tax assessor-collectors and others to maintain or restore services in affected areas.

    Motor Carrier
    Permitting

    Movement of Oversize/Overweight Loads in Texas Disaster Areas

    Permit Waiver for motor carriers transporting oversize and/or overweight loads for Hurricane Harvey disaster relief efforts:

    Permit Waiver per Gov. Greg Abbott’s Declaration of Disaster

    Are you moving an oversize and/or overweight non-divisible load associated with activities related to the disaster and for which the TxDMV would normally issue a permit?

    If yes, you are not required to obtain a permit at this time. Instead print the Governor’s waiver and carry it in your vehicle. The declaration is found here:
    Gov. Greg Abbott’s Waiver

    View and print the TxDMV’s Waiver Notice and important restrictions here:
    TxDMV’s Waiver Notice

    If your load is overheight, you may use the “Bid Route” feature in the Texas Permitting and Routing Optimization System (TxPROS) at https://txpros.txdmv.gov/ to route loads safely. Enter your height only and leave all other fields blank to use this feature during the Hurricane emergency. For information on other restrictions go here: Permit Restrictions

    For a more accurate route than the bid route tool, contact us for routing assistance at 1-800-299-1700, option 2.

    The Governor’s declaration waives all permitting requirements, including curfews and normal escort requirements. Vehicles may travel at night up to 10-feet wide without an escort and with front and rear escorts if exceeding 10-feet wide.

    Apportioned Registration/
    Temp Permits

    Texas Governor Greg Abbott has suspended certain vehicle registration requirements related to Apportioned Registration, also known as the International Registration Plan (IRP), and Temporary Permits for operators of commercial motor vehicles involved in Hurricanes/Tropical Storms Harvey and Irma disaster relief in Texas and other states. The suspension covers:

    • International Registration Plan (IRP) vehicle registration under Transportation Code, Section 502.091 and 43 TAC 217.56 to the extent the vehicle is not already registered under IRP, as long as the motor vehicle is registered in one of the 48 contiguous states of the United States; and
    • 72-/144-hour temporary registration permits under Transportation Code, Section 502.094 and 43 TAC 217.40(b)(3), as long as the vehicle is registered in another state of the United States or a state of the United Mexican States.

    The suspension is needed to make it faster and easier for operators of commercial motor vehicles from Texas and other states to provide assistance to both Texas and Louisiana by temporarily waiving vehicle registration requirements to travel in and through the state of Texas. Although smaller passenger vehicles are granted free vehicle registration in Texas via registration reciprocity agreements with other states, commercial motor vehicles are not granted free vehicle registration under such agreements.

    Examples of disaster assistance include, but are not limited to, vehicles engaged in the transport of relief workers, food, water, clothing, equipment, materials, fuel, shelter, and other supplies to the impacted areas, as well as vehicles used to restore utilities and to remove debris from the impacted areas.

    The suspension only applies to the vehicle registration requirements for operators of commercial vehicles that are providing disaster assistance pursuant to the declarations referenced in Governor Abbott’s proclamation. The suspension does not apply to any other requirement, including any safety requirements. Also, operators are responsible and liable for safely routing their vehicles and obtaining current restrictions and information concerning hazardous road conditions prior to movement.

    Please see the storm you are responding to below for specific requirements related to the Governor’s suspension.

    Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief
    These suspensions will expire 14 days after the expiration of Governor Abbott’s September 20, 2017, Disaster Declaration, as amended.

    No action on your part is required to qualify for these temporary suspensions.

    Hurricane Irma Disaster Relief
    These suspensions terminated on October 18, 2017.

    A: According to the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI), if you have comprehensive auto coverage, you are covered for flood damage to your car. Visit tdi.texas.gov for more details on insurance coverage.

    Q: Will I need to provide my vehicle title to my insurance company? What if my title was lost or damaged in the flood?
    A: Your insurance provider may request the title for your vehicle. You can obtain a certified copy of title in person at any TxDMV Regional Service Center If you are unable to visit a TxDMV Regional Service Center, you can apply for a certified copy of title by mailing the Application for a Certified Copy of Title (Form VTR-34) to:

    Texas Department of Motor Vehicles
    1601-A Southwest Parkway
    Wichita Falls, TX 76302

    Note: The address the certified copy of title will be mailed to must be a deliverable address. Some addresses may not be deliverable in the aftermath of the storm.

    Q: How do I obtain a duplicate registration receipt for my vehicle?
    A: If you need a duplicate registration/inquiry receipt, you will need to complete a Request for Duplicate Registration/Inquiry Receipt for Hurricane Harvey Impacted Vehicles (Form VTR-275-HRV). You can submit the complete form and a photo copy of your government issued photo identification to any county tax assessor-collector’s office, Texas Department of Motor Vehicles Regional Service Center, or by mail to:.

    Texas Department of Motor Vehicles
    Vehicle Titles and Registration Division
    4000 Jackson Avenue
    Austin, TX 78731

    Q: How do I obtain my title if there is a lien on my vehicle?
    A: If you need a certified copy of title and there is a lien on the motor vehicle record, you will need to contact the lienholder to obtain a release of lien. Your insurance provider should let you know if you need to contact the lienholder.

    Q: What should I do if the loss of my vehicle due to flood damage is not covered by insurance?
    A: In the event the loss to your motor vehicle is not covered by insurance, there are additional steps for you to pursue. You have the option of applying for either a salvage title or a nonrepairable title, depending on the level of damage sustained. If the repair costs are more than the cash value of the vehicle immediately prior to the damage, but can be repaired, your vehicle can be considered a salvage vehicle. If your vehicle sustained significant damage and cannot be repaired, rebuilt, reconstructed, or made operable for use on a public highway, it is considered a nonrepairable motor vehicle.

    Q: How can I be sure whether I need to apply for a salvage vehicle or a nonrepairable title?
    A: In order to make this determination, you should obtain an appraisal of the repair cost. A salvage motor vehicle is a motor vehicle that has damage to or is missing a major component part to the extent that the cost of repairs exceeds the actual cash value of the motor vehicle immediately before the damage. A nonrepairable motor vehicle is a motor vehicle that is damaged, wrecked, or burned to the extent that the only residual value of the vehicle is as a source of parts or scrap metal. To apply for a salvage or nonrepairable title, complete the Application for a Salvage or Nonrepairable Vehicle Title (Form VTR-441), and mail it to:

    Texas Department of Motor Vehicles Vehicle Titles and Registration Division
    ATTN: Title Control Systems
    P.O. Box 26450
    Austin, Texas 78755-0450

    Q: Is it legal to sell a salvaged, nonrepairable or flood-damaged vehicle in Texas?
    A: Yes, as long as the title properly reflects this condition so that buyer is aware.

    Q: How can I avoid buying a salvage, nonrepairable or flood-damaged vehicle?
    A: Do a Title Check. The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is run through the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS), a national consumer protection database that provides title information from states across the country. Whether you are buying from a local dealer, individual or eyeing a vehicle from an online auction website, it will help you to know what you are buying before you pay any money or sign any paperwork for the vehicle. A report from the NMVTIS database gives you the vehicle’s title history, which includes whether the vehicle was ever in the possession of a junk or salvage yard or declared a “total loss” by an insurance company.
