Motor Vehicles Services

The County Tax Assessor-Collector is designated by statute as the agent for the state Department of Motor Vehicles and the State Comptroller for collection of motor vehicle fees. Under the registration statutes, every owner of a motor vehicle and taxes is required to register it with the tax assessor in the county in which the owner resides.

'Two Steps, One Sticker' Program:

Beginning March 1, 2015, the State of Texas will no longer issue vehicle inspection stickers for passing inspections.

From March 1, 2015 through February 29, 2016, you may renew your registration if your vehicle has a current, passing inspection. However, if your inspection and registration stickers both expire in the same month your vehicle will need to pass inspection prior to registration renewal. Go to the 'Two Steps, One Sticker' website to calculate your inspection date by clicking on the "Calculate My Date" tab.

Renew your annual registration online, by mail, or in person at your county tax office. At the time of registration, your inspection status will be verified electronically. A current, passing inspection is required for registration renewal.

As of March 1, 2016, you have a 90 day window to complete both your inspection and registration.   You must have your vehicle inspected within 90 days before your sticker expires.  You must obtain a passing inspection prior to renewing your registration.   Your registration is valid through the last day of the registration expiration month.  

Additional information about the 'Two Steps, One Sticker' program can be found on the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles website at or Click on the 'Motorists' tab for additional information.

If you are renewing your Texas registration, renewals may be completed in person at either of the Tax Assessor Offices listed below.
