Visit the office of your county tax assessor-collector.
Before renewing your registration, you will need to obtain a passing vehicle inspection at a state vehicle inspection station of your choice, unless your vehicle is exempt from inspection requirements.

• Initial vehicle registration
• Vehicle registration renewal
• Vehicle titling
• Renewal of permanent disabled parking placards
• 30-day temporary permits
The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles does not issue driver licenses or state ID cards. You should contact the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) at www.dps.texas.gov/driverlicense/ for these services.
