Vehicle registration renewal

Options for renewing registration

Renew your registration online

We want you to renew your registration online. The online system automatically checks your vehicle inspection and insurance, and you receive an online renewal receipt that allows you to drive for up to 31 days after your sticker expires, giving the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles plenty of time to mail your sticker. You can use the online renewal system providing you have not received a citation for expired registration and are not more than six months past your sticker’s expiration date.

Other ways to renew

Take your complete Texas Department of Motor Vehicles renewal notice, inspection report and proof of insurance to any Travis County H-E-B, Fiesta Mart or AAA stores where they will print your sticker on the spot.

You may renew by mail (include a copy of your Vehicle Inspection Report and insurance card in the envelope) or by coming to one of our four tax office locations (include address of these four). Be prepared for a long wait and bring your inspection report and proof of insurance. Schedule your appointment.

Pay the state registration, inspection and emissions fees

State law requires us to collect these fees when you renew your registration

A sticky situation

So now, you have your new sticker, but how do you get the old one off? Begin by peeling one of the top corners. You are going to take the sticker off at an angle. Once you begin to peel back the corner, apply steady pressure as you continue to peel it off. If the sticker does not come off in one piece or if it left a sticky residue, apply WD-40 to help with removal. Be sure to clean the area with alcohol before applying the new sticker.
