January 2021 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 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 9 – Registration Fees
Section 9.5, “Mopeds,” was updated to remove reference to the Texas Department of Public Safety certified moped list that is no longer maintained or used when registering a vehicle as a moped as detailed in RTB 014-20.  Mopeds that meet the definition in Transportation Code, Section 541.201, are eligible for Moped license plates.

Chapter 17 – Transfer of Registration when Applying for Title
Section 17.5, “Plate to Owner,” was updated to remove language regarding classification type limitations that are no longer necessary since all passenger vehicles and trucks are now issued the same general issue license plate. 

Thank you,


Tim Thompson, Deputy Director
Vehicle Titles and Registration Division
Texas Department of Motor Vehicles
