Title or Tags Expired? Texans Need To Renew This Month
If you've been holding off on renewing your vehicle's title and registration, you may want to start making plans to get that sticker up to date. Texans now have until April 14th to renew their expired vehicle registration without facing a penalty.
In March 2020, Governor Greg Abbott suspended title and registration renewals for Texans in an effort to reduce foot traffic during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, time is just about up for many Texans who held off renewing their vehicle's title and registration. After April 14th, Officers are authorized to begin issuing citations; we all know how bothersome those icky pieces of paper are; thankfully, Texans have a few options.
How To Renew:
Online: Renew Your Registration Online. All you need is your license plate number and the last four digits of your vehicle's VIN. If you choose to renew online, expect up to three weeks to receive your sticker. You can keep track of your vehicle's registration sticker by visiting Dude, Where's My Sticker?. Also! An added bonus of renewing online is: not only do you have less in-person contact, but you will also receive a $1 discount.
Mail: If you plan to renew by mail, you will need to mail a few things to the local county Tax Assessor. Be sure to include: your renewal notice, a copy of your vehicle's inspection, proof of insurance, and the fees for your vehicle, which can be found at www.txdmv.gov.
In-Person: Sometimes it's just easier and faster to keep it old school and go in person. To register this way, take your registration renewal notice and proof of current liability insurance to your county tax office; Victoria's is located at 205 N Bridge St., Ste 101.
*Be sure that you have your vehicle inspected BEFORE you try and renew*
