Please review and distribute as appropriate.

This is to notify you that effective August 25, 2017, the Internet Vehicle Title and Registration Service no longer accepts American Express as payment for online registration renewals.  The change was made as a result of feedback from counties that they were experiencing issues when customers paid with American Express.

UPDATED Texas Disaster Areas Restricted from Oversize/Overweight Permit Travel

The TxDMV will not issue oversize/overweight permits for travel into or out of disaster areas (see map below) for loads not related to relief efforts. Only oversize and/or overweight vehicles involved in the relief efforts will be allowed to travel in the Hurricane Harvey affected areas. Active permits issued prior to the disaster will be extended as needed for travel at a later date.

 

Motor carriers transporting oversize and/or overweight loads for Hurricane Harvey disaster relief efforts have two options, the permit waiver per Gov. Gregg Abbott’s Declaration of Disaster or the MAP-21 Emergency Relief Permit per President Trump’s Declaration of Disaster. Visit the following link for more details: http://www.txdmv.gov/harvey

Update to Hurricane Harvey Procedures

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

The TxDMV is continuing to evaluate solutions for processing registration renewals and title transactions for individuals affected by Hurricane Harvey. As you are aware, the transportation code was recently amended to allow other counties to process transactions for customers that are not residents of their county under certain circumstances. However, the Registration and Title System has not been programed at this time to facilitate this as a viable option. Please be patient as we work on alternatives.     
 
We are aware that customers are requesting counties other than their county of residence to process registration renewals. Please provide those customers the option of renewing their registration online.  State law was amended to allow the registration receipt to serve as proof of registration. Please keep in mind individuals processing renewals online must provide a mailing address where they can receive the sticker and that is not impacted by the disaster.  
 
Thank you for all the work you are doing to keep Texas moving and the offers to assist in providing services to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. The TxDMV is still evaluating options that provide the least amount of burden to those that have been displaced by this tragic event. We will send out notifications as soon as we have additional information to share.

Texas Disaster Areas Restricted from Oversize/Overweight Permit Travel

The TxDMV will not issue oversize/overweight permits for travel into or out of disaster areas (see map below) for loads not related to relief efforts. Only oversize and/or overweight vehicles involved in the relief efforts will be allowed to travel in the Hurricane Harvey affected areas. Active permits issued prior to the disaster will be extended as needed for travel at a later date.

Motor carriers transporting oversize and/or overweight loads for Hurricane Harvey disaster relief efforts have two options, the permit waiver per Gov. Gregg Abbott’s Declaration of Disaster or the MAP-21 Emergency Relief Permit per President Trump’s Declaration of Disaster. Visit the following link for more details: http://www.txdmv.gov/harvey

Note: Map will be updated as needed.

Movement of Oversize/Overweight Loads in Texas Disaster Area

The TxDMV will not issue oversize/overweight permits for travel into disaster areas for loads not related to relief efforts. Only oversize and/or overweight vehicles involved in the relief efforts will be allowed to travel in the Hurricane Harvey affected areas. Active permits issued prior to the disaster will be extended as needed for travel at a later date.

Motor carriers transporting oversize and/or overweight loads for Hurricane Harvey disaster relief efforts have two options:

  1. Permit Waiver per Gov. Greg Abbott’s Declaration of Disaster

Are you moving an oversize and/or overweight non-divisible load associated with activities related to the disaster and for which the TxDMV would normally issue a permit?

If yes, you are not required to obtain a permit at this time. Instead print the Governor’s waiver and carry it in your vehicle. The declaration is found here: https://gov.texas.gov/news/post/Disaster-Proclamation-Issued-For-30-Texas-Counties-in-Anticipation-Of-Tropical-Depression-Harvey-Making-Landfall

View and print the TxDMV’s Waiver Notice and important restrictions here: http://www.txdmv.gov/reports-and-data/doc_download/8351-disaster-declaration-size-weight-ts-harveyaug24-17

Both documents are linked here: http://www.txdmv.gov/motor-carriers

If your load is overheight, you may use the “Bid Route” feature in the Texas Permitting and Routing Optimization System (TxPROS) at https://txpros.txdmv.gov/ to route loads safely. Enter your height only and leave all other fields blank to use this feature during the Hurricane emergency. For information on other restrictions go here: http://www.txdmv.gov/motorcarriers/permit-restrictions.

For a more accurate route than the bid route tool, contact us for routing assistance at 1-800-299-1700, option 2.

The Governor’s declaration waives all permitting requirements, including curfews and normal escort requirements. Vehicles may travel at night up to 10-feet wide without an escort and with front and rear escorts if exceeding 10-feet wide.

  1. MAP-21 Emergency Relief Permit per President Donald Trump’s Declaration of Disaster

If you are moving a load that is overweight only to:

  • Deliver a load that consists entirely of relief supplies. Relief supplies include but are not limited to medicine, medical equipment, food supplies (including for livestock), water, and materials for building temporary structures, or
  • Transport materials from the area, such as debris, in order to facilitate the delivery of relief supplies, provided the removal expedites the clearing of roadways, staging areas, or locations for temporary structures to facilitate delivery of relief supplies.

If so, you may self-issue a MAP-21 Emergency Permit through the Texas Permitting and Routing Optimization System (TxPROS). https://txpros.txdmv.gov/  Permit is not valid for loads leaving the area with exception of those removing debris.

A copy of the President’s declaration must be carried with the permit. The declaration can be found here: https://www.fema.gov/news-release/2017/08/25/president-donald-j-trump-approves-major-disaster-declaration-texas.

The MAP-21 Emergency Permit allows for travel on all state and federal roads, including the interstate highway system. The permit may not be used for overwidth, overlength, or overheight loads.

See permit for a complete list of movement conditions and restrictions.

Change to Inspection Requirements for Certain Trailers

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

Beginning on September 1, 2017, vehicle dealers are no longer required to inspect trailers, semitrailers, and pole trailers as part of the state inspection program if the trailer has a gross vehicle weight of 7,500 lbs. or less. Under current law, trailers, semitrailers, and pole trailers 4,500 lbs. or less are already exempt from the inspection requirement based on their gross vehicle weight.

This change is the result of Senate Bill 1001, enacted by the 85th Regular Session, Texas Legislature, which added Transportation Code, Sections 502.012 and 548.510, and amended Section 548.052 regarding the inspection exemption for trailers, semitrailers, and pole trailers.

Senate Bill 1001 maintains a fee of $7.50 for trailers, semitrailers, and pole trailers with a gross vehicle weight of 4,501 lbs. to 7,500 lbs. The fee will now be described as the “Mobility/Clean Air Fee” on receipts issued through the Registration and Title System (RTS) and webDEALER. The RTS and webDEALER systems are programmed to reflect this name change on September 1. This fee supports the Texas Mobility Fund, Clean Air Account, and the General Revenue Fund.

Thank you for your help in distributing this information.
