In an effort to reduce the need for in-person transactions, Governor Abbott issued a statement on March 16, 2020, granting a temporary extension to obtain initial registration, renewal of registration, vehicle titling, and renewal of a permanent disabled parking placard. Governor Abbott also granted a temporary extension for an individual with an expired 30-day temporary permit to obtain another permit or Texas registration. This temporary waiver is in effect until 60 days after TxDMV notifies the public that normal vehicle registration, vehicle titling and related services have resumed.

You may still go online to and renew your registration online.

What this means is your registration is still due, but you have more time to get it renewed without worrying about getting a ticket for expired registration. When the Governor and TxDMV give the “All Clear”, you will have 60 days from that point to complete your renewals without penalties.

Belton, Fort Hood, Killeen, and Temple offices are currently open by appointment only. Click the Appointment button below to make an appointment.
