AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you were confused by the changes made to the state’s vehicle inspection and registration last year, this year might be a tad bit easier to understand.
The transition year ends on March 1, 2016, which means your vehicle will have one expiration date for inspection and registration. Here’s what you’ll need to do to make sure your vehicle is properly registered.
- Take a look at the date on your vehicle registration sticker
- Pass a vehicle inspection no earlier than 90 days prior to your registration expiration and retain your vehicle inspection report.
- After your vehicle passes inspection, renew your registration online, by mail or in person at your county tax office–your inspection status will be verified electronically
Your vehicle inspection and registration will expire on the last day of whatever month is on your sticker.
“By now most vehicles in the state have successfully transitioned to a single sticker as proof of both inspection and registration,” said TxDMV Executive Director Whitney Brewster in a press release.
