Hays County County Gears Up for new "Texas Two Steps One Sticker" Program
Beginning March 1, 2015, the state will no longer issue vehicle inspection stickers and will move to a “Two Steps, One Sticker” program. 

Under the new system, Texas vehicle owners will need to pass inspection prior to renewing their registration. The familiar blue-bordered Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) registration sticker will serve as proof of both inspection and registration.

“Hays County is prepared to make this transition as smooth as possible for our residents,” said Luanne Caraway, Hays County Tax Assessor-Collector. “During the first year of the program beginning March 1, 2015, all you will need to do is make sure you already have a valid passing vehicle inspection before you renew your registration in our office, online or by mail.” 

“At the inspection station you’ll pay only for the cost of the inspection itself,” Caraway said. “The additional charge that has in the past been collected there for the Department of Public Safety will now be collected by the tax office when the vehicle is registered.” 

The implementation of “Two Steps One Sticker” is a result of House Bill 2305 which passed during the 83rd Legislative Session in 2013. The program is joint effort by the TxDMV, the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, in collaboration with the 254 county tax assessor-collector’s offices which process vehicle registrations and vehicle inspection stations across the state.
