Vehicle Services
By working closely with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles and the local Dealers, we hope to offer our customers the most convenient and efficient service possible.

Since the introduction of the Texas Department of Motor Vehicle's computerized Registration and Title System (RTS) in 1995, the transaction time for registrations and titles in our offices has been reduced greatly. Also, titles are now delivered to customers approximately two weeks from the transaction date instead of six to eight weeks, as it was before RTS was implemented.

The Tax Office offers a number of ways to conduct your automobile transactions. The purchase of registration stickers and the transfer of titles can be done through the mail. We now offer Online Vehicle access this feature, click HERE.  Please note that you will need to have your license plate number and the last four digits of your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) in order to renew your registration online.  For more information on these services, please call the Tax Office at (512) 393-5545.

Registered vehicle owners can authorize a representative to complete vehicle registration-related business on their behalf. Please download and complete an AUTHORIZATION LETTER and present with a copy of the registered owner's valid. Driver's License.
