With the season of endless lists upon us – gift lists for family and friends, to do lists for everything that needs to get done before the holidays, grocery lists for parties and dinners – Texas.gov offers an easy, secure, and stress-free way to check driving tasks off your list. Give yourself the gift of time this holiday season, and steer your Internet browser to Texas.gov/Driver. From there, you can quickly take care of the following:
- Renew Your Driver License – You may be eligible to renew online up to a year before and a year after your expiration date. You can also change your address online if you’ve recently moved.
- Renew Your Vehicle Registration – Renew your registration and sign up for an email reminder for next year. If your registration has already expired, no problem. You have up to six months following the expiration date to renew online.
- Order Driver Records – Print a copy of your driving record for insurance or other purposes.
- Check Driving Eligibility & Pay Reinstatement Fees – Check the status of your driving eligibility or pay fees to have your license reinstated.
In 2013 alone, Texans have completed more than 4.3 million transactions via Texas.gov for these driving related services. Comments we have heard from our delighted users after they completed these services online include, “Wow … I just experienced the most painless vehicle registration ever, sitting in the comfort of my own home breezing through Texas.gov.,” and “Could not possibly be any easier. Nice job Texas.gov.”
And remember, Texas.gov is a convenient, fuel-efficient way to complete many other government services online too – pay CHIP enrollment fees, order a birth certificate, purchase commissary items for individuals incarcerated at a TDCJ facility, and much more. With 1,000+ online services, secure payment processing and friendly 24/7 customer service, make things easier on yourself and your schedule, and instead of traveling to an office, take it online with Texas.gov!
