Here’s a more detailed overview of how renewing your vehicle’s registration works.
Before issuing your registration renewal notice, TxDMV checks the state inspection database for your last inspection. If your inspection record cannot be found or is failing, you will not receive a registration renewal notice. Instead, TxDMV will send you an Inspection and Registration Notice informing you that a passing record could not be located.
Here is more information about how to renew your registration:
If you have a passing inspection in the inspection database, you can complete your renewal online and your new registration sticker will be mailed to you.
If you do not have a passing inspection in the inspection database and you are unable to certify that the vehicle is out of state, you will need to obtain a passing vehicle inspection or visit your local county tax office and present your Vehicle Inspection Report (VIR) to complete your renewal.
If you have a passing inspection in the inspection database, include a copy of your VIR with your registration renewal notice and your local county tax office will process your renewal. Your new registration sticker will be mailed to you.
If you DO NOT have a passing inspection, your renewal will not be processed. Your county will request that you provide verification of inspection.
If you have a passing inspection in the inspection database, the clerk will proceed with your renewal. Inspection will be verified electronically at the time of renewal.
Most inspection records are available in real time, but there may be instances when the record is not immediately available. If your vehicle passed inspection but the system is unable to electronically verify it, you may present the passing VIR you received from the inspection station to the county at the time of renewal. If you need to show proof of inspection to complete your vehicle’s registration renewal, visit www.mytxcar.org to download, display electronically, or print a copy of the document. Your inspection will be verified manually, and you will be permitted to renew your vehicle registration.
If you are renewing your registration at a county subcontractor location, such as your local grocery store, they may not accept your VIR as proof of inspection. Each county determines whether their subcontractors can verify inspection via VIR. If a subcontractor is not permitted to verify via VIR, you will be directed to the county tax office to complete your renewal.
