Texas Permitting and Routing Optimization System (TxPROS) Upgrades on Sept. 28, 2020

Texas Permitting and Routing Optimization System (TxPROS)
Upgrades on September 28, 2020

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) will upgrade the Texas Permitting and Routing Optimization System (TxPROS) on September 28 to add a new self-issue permit type and other features that will improve the overall customer experience.

Amendments

The upgrade will allow customers to self-amend some active permits one time. The items that may be amended will vary depending on the permit type. From the dashboard, customers will select the permit number and then select Amend under the Action column.

 

For more information on how to self-amend a permit visit: https://youtu.be/enUEOHZASdc

Quarterly Hubometer Permits (HUB Permits)
TxPROS customers will also be able to self-renew or close-out an existing HUB Permit. A new button, Hubometer, will appear on the customer dashboard. Upon selection, a list of current HUB Permits will appear. Customers can select to View, Closeout/Reissue, or amend the license plate on the unit through this new feature.

Additionally, a HUB Permit fee estimator has been added. This may be accessed through a new button, HUB Estimator, on the customer dashboard. Enter the current permit number and the end reading of the unit’s hubometer to receive an estimate of the fees due.

With these new features in place, effective September 28, Quarterly Hubometer Permit applications will no longer be accepted by fax.

For more information on how to self-issue, renew, or close-out a Quarterly Hubometer Permit visit: https://youtu.be/lmaO7sHz6Fc

Postponement of Programming Release for Statewide webDEALER Adoption

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

As you are aware, Senate Bill (SB) 604, enacted by the 86th Legislature, amended Transportation Code, Section 520.005 by adding Subsection (e).  This new subsection requires each county tax assessor-collector to make webDEALER available to any licensed motor vehicle dealers (“dealers”) requesting access effective September 1, 2020.

The department’s webDEALER project team has worked to address defects and previous enhancement requests made by county tax assessor-collectors and dealers currently utilizing webDEALER.  Programming changes for this first release were originally scheduled for August 31 to coincide with the effective date of SB 604.  The department is actively involved in User Acceptance Testing to ensure a high-quality product and therefore has postponed the release.  The department will provide an update as we determine a new release date. 

Please note that postponement of the programming release has no impact on the requirement to provide webDEALER access to dealers who make a request effective September 1, 2020.

Thank you,

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