Texans have just over two weeks left to get their vehicles inspected and registered, as the statewide temporary waiver of certain vehicle title and registration requirements will end at 11:59 p.m. on April 14.

The Denton County Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office said in a news release that it is ready to serve drivers whose registration has expired since Gob. Greg Abbott issued the waiver a year ago. If you have not renewed your expired vehicle registration sticker, you should make plans to renew on or before April 14. It is not necessary wait until the deadline to complete any overdue transactions.

“I commend Governor Abbott for balancing the safety of Texans with the need to continue vital state services by offering the waivers to registration and titling requirements during the pandemic. Fortunately, many Texans are already in compliance with these requirements,” said Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) Executive Director Whitney Brewster. “We continued to offer registration renewal and other important services throughout the waiver period.”

Unless exempt, you must get a passing vehicle inspection before renewing registration. You can renew online if your registration expired less than nine months ago, or you can also renew by mail or in person. For more information, click here.
