AUSTIN (KXAN) — It’s time to get your vehicle’s registration renewed, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles says.
Gov. Greg Abbott’s temporary waiver of certain vehicle title and registration requirements expires at 11:59 p.m. April 14, and TxDMV doesn’t want you to wait until the last minute to take care of it.
There are three options to renew registration TxDMV said.
- Online at TxDMV.com or www.Texas.gov is the quickest and easiest way, TxDMV said, and you can save $1 on fees. It’s available for up to nine months past your expiration date.
- By mailing the bottom portion of your registration renewal form, payment and other required information to your county’s tax assessor-collector
- In-person at your county’s tax assessor-collector office. Contact your county tax office for hours and locations. It’s possible you can renew in-person at certain grocery stores, as well.
Before renewing registration, vehicles need to pass an inspection. Folks can visit a state inspection site of their choosing to get that taken care of.
The expiring waiver covers the following services:
- Initial vehicle registration
- Vehicle registration renewal
- Vehicle tilting
- Renewal of permanent disabled parking placards
- 30-day temporary permits
