April 2022 Motor Vehicle Registration Manual Update

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

The latest update to the Motor Vehicle Registration Manual (attached) is now available via Registration and Title System (RTS) workstations and at www.txdmv.gov.

The department welcomes your feedback and encourages you to email any comments or suggestions to VTR_Title_Reg-Manual-Update@txdmv.gov (please note the underscores between VTR and Title and between Title and Reg).

Updates for this release are marked with red change bars in the text.

Chapter 2 – Commercial Vehicles
Section 2.1, “Commercial Motor Vehicle or Truck-Tractor Fees,” was updated to clarify that a generator with a trailer that is manufactured specifically for that generator qualifies for machinery license plates. The generator image and reference have been removed from the manual.

Chapter 14 – Application for Registration
Section 14.4, “Initial Registration,” was updated as a result of Senate Bill 876 to allow registration in the county in which the individual resides or any county willing to accept the application.

Thank you,


Roland D. Luna, Sr., Director
Vehicle Titles and Registration Division
Texas Department of Motor Vehicles
