Registration expires on the last day of the month shown on your sticker.
For example, if your sticker shows a date of 12/17, your registration is valid through the last day of December 2017.
This is accomplished by automating the process of filling out the numerous forms. You'll need to change your name on your Social Security card, TX driver license or ID card, vehicle registration, and vehicle title.
When you've legally changed your name, you must report your new name to the Social Security Administration (SSA) before changing your name with the Texas DMV and DPS.
Your vehicle registration sticker displays your license plate number, county of registration and partial vehicle identification number.
This customization helps protect you against theft and fraud.
If you want to change your name, you can do so at your local DMV.
However, if you don't mind paying a small convenience fee, our state-approved partner can save you hours of filing hassles. Whether you've recently been married, divorced, or adopted, if you've legally changed your name, you'll need to report your new name to the Social Security Administration (SSA), the Department of Public Safety (DPS) and the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
There are no additional fees to change your address on top of your renewal fee.

You will receive your updated TX driver's license or ID card in the mail 3 weeks after your application.
