MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTRATION/INSURANCE

It may look like a little thing, but your vehicle registration sticker does great things for Texans. The fee you pay each year to register helps to build and maintain our highways, roads, and bridges. Plus, a portion of your fee goes to work in your own county. If you’re new to Texas, remember, you must register your vehicle within 30 days. Learn more at www.registeredtexan.com or call 512-465‑7611.
