March 24: County Judge Chris Hill's executive order regarding shelter-in-place for COVID-19

Motor Vehicles Services


Effective Monday, March 23, 2020, Collin County Tax Assessor-Collector is closed to the public until further notice.

In an effort to reduce the need for in-person transactions the Collin County Tax Assessor-Collector urges taxpayers to take advantage of alternative ways to handle your property tax and motor vehicle transactions.  It is important that we do everything we can to keep our customers and staff safe from COVID-19 exposure.

Governor Greg Abbott, working with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, is waiving late penalties for title applications and expired placards for persons with disabilities, and law enforcement will also temporarily refrain from ticketing vehicles with expired registration stickers for those who are unable to renew.  For detailed information please visit the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles at

Please contact our office in an effort to process your transactions by mail, online, or through our drop-off box.

Telephones and drop-off box available Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

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.

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

The '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 Feb. 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 registering your vehicle in Collin County for the first time, you will need to do so in person at any of the offices listed below. See the New Resident Registration page for details. If you are renewing your Texas registration, renewals may be completed in person at either of the Tax Assessor Offices listed below.
