Governor Abbott Waived Certain Vehicle Registration Regulations due to COVID-19

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles has received numerous phone calls from motorists who have received citations from law enforcement for registration violations. On March 16, 2020, Governor Greg Abbott granted waivers to Transportation Code pertaining to vehicle registration. The registration waivers apply to the general rule requiring registration, delinquent registration, the operation of vehicles with expired license plates, the general penalty for offenses under Chapter 502, and the operation of vehicles without registration insignia. The waiver for expired license plates allows motorists a temporary extension to renew registration. The temporary extension to renew registration means vehicle owners should not receive a citation for expired registration, regardless of when the registration expired.

The TxDMV will provide notice when normal services resume, and the temporary waivers will remain in effect until 60 days after the notice is provided.
