Online Temporary Permits

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

With the implementation of Registration and Title System (RTS) Release 9.1.0, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) introduced new security features for online temporary permits. These security features are intended to help prevent the permits from being used fraudulently. In addition to the recently implemented security features, the TxDMV has been working on additional features to enhance security of the temporary permits.

Based on the implementation timeframe for the additional security features and law enforcement concern of fraudulent activity, One-Trip and 30-Day Permits are temporarily unavailable online. Customers will still have the option to purchase One-Trip and 30-Day Permits through the county offices and 16 TxDMV Regional Service Centers via RTS. The 72-Hour and 144-Hour Permits are still available online.

At this time, we do not have a date when the One-Trip and 30-Day Permits will be made available online, but we will keep you informed. We appreciate your patience as we work to make the online temporary permit application better.

Thank you,

Jeremiah Kuntz, Director
Vehicle Titles and Registration Division
Texas Department of Motor Vehicles
