- If you renew your registration during the waiver period, you must pass vehicle inspection first. If you have already obtained a passing vehicle inspection, you may renew your registration online at https://renew.TxDMV.gov/.
- You may also renew your registration by mail and, in some counties, in person. Contact your local county tax office directly to determine if in-person or drop-off services are available at any of the office locations in your county.
- Services available in one county are not necessarily available in other counties at this time.
