Titling Requirements for Assembled Vehicles

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

House Bill 1755, enacted by the 86th Legislature, requires an owner of an assembled vehicle to title and register the vehicle in accordance with Transportation Code, Chapter 731, and Administrative Code.  The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) adopted 43 Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 217, Subchapter L, which outlines the titling process and requirements for an assembled vehicle that has not been titled in Texas or another state. 

Effective June 22, 2020, the owner of an assembled vehicle must obtain an approval letter on department letterhead from a TxDMV Regional Service Center (RSC) prior to applying for title at a county tax assessor-collector office.  The RSC will determine if the vehicle is eligible for title and registration and verify all required documents have been provided. 

The TxDMV website has been updated with assembled vehicle information to ensure owners are prepared to obtain title and registration for their assembled vehicle.  This information can be found at https://www.txdmv.gov/motorists/assembled-vehicles.  The Assembled and Rebuilt Vehicle Manual has been removed from the TxDMV website and is in the process of being revised with these new requirements.

Thank you,

Jeremiah Kuntz, Director
Vehicle Titles and Registration Division
