Waivers On Drivers License and Registration Renewal End In Texas
With the COVID-19 pandemic and most businesses either closed or just seeing limited in-person visits, it was difficult to get your driver's license and registration completed for those people that live on the Texas side of Texarkana.
The state of Texas had instituted some waivers on getting your driver's license and registration renewed because of the pandemic, but those waivers are going to end next month. Here is what the Texarkana Texas Police had to say about the waivers ending in Texas.
The temporary waivers in Texas on registering your vehicle and renewing your driver's license end on April 14th. Governor Abbott put those in place last year in response to the pandemic, but they are expiring next month.
If you need to take care of either one or both, now is the time to get them done. In many cases, you will likely be able to renew them online. However, your particular circumstances may require that you do it in person. Please don't wait until the last minute only to find out that you can't do it online and wind up missing the deadline.
The Texas side police department has not written any tickets for expired vehicle registration or driver's license in over a year. However, they will start enforcing both of these laws again on April 14th. Don't get caught unaware.
The Texas side police sent the reminder out on their Facebook page so that all citizens will be aware of the changes to the driver's license and vehicle registration renewal process returning to normal. Please check your windshield to make sure when your registration is due for renewal and don't forget that vehicle inspections are required for you to be able to renew your registration in Texas.
