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.


Temporary Waiver of Vehicle Title & Registration Requirements Ends April 14, 2021

Texans have through the end of April 14, 2021 to complete overdue transactions.

If you're overdue, it's time to renew!  The temporary waiver of certain vehicle title and registration requirements, announced by Governor Greg Abbott on March 16, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will end on April 14, 2021.

If you have not renewed your expired vehicle registration, you should make plans to renew by that date. It is no necessary to wait until the deadline to complete any overdue transactions as motorists have several renewal options.

Ways to renew your vehicle registration:

You may register in person at either the Tax Assessor Office locations listed below or any participating grocery store and other subcontractor locations.

You may also register by mail or online through our Internet Vehicle Registration Renewal System.

For online registration, credit cards are accepted for a $2.00 convenience fee. See the Internet Vehicle Registration Renewal System website for other requirements. Both online registration and registration by mail requires us to send the sticker back to you. There is a $1.00 mail fee if this is requested.​​

Reminder:  Before renewing registration, Texans will need to obtain a passing vehicle inspection at the state vehicle inspection station of their choice, unless their vehicle is exempt from inspection requirements.  

The expiring temporary waiver covers the following services:

  • Initial vehicle registration.
  • Vehicle registration renewal.
  • Vehicle titling.
  • Renewal of permanent disabled parking placards.
  • 30-day temporary permits.

Unpaid Tolls

Do you have unpaid tolls? Effective Sept. 1, 2017, all Collin County Offices will be honoring the NTTA Scofflaw Registration Blocks. A Registered Motor Vehicle with 100 or more delinquent tolls will be unable to renew registration. You will need to provide a Vehicle Registration Release Form from the North Texas Tollway Authority in order to obtain your Motor Vehicle Registration Sticker.

You can clear your vehicle registration block in person by setting up a Payment Plan or by calling NTTA at 469-828-4619.

For additional information, visit the North Te​xas Tollway Authority​.

The Collin County Tax Office has NO information on NTTA tolls and administration fees.

Two Steps, One Sticker

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 www.TxDMV.gov or www.TwoStepsOneSticker.com. 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.
