Your vehicle must first pass a vehicle safety inspection and an inspection of the vehicle identification number. These services are available at a state-approved Safety Inspection Station.
The inspection facility will provide you with verification form that must be submitted to the county tax office along with an application for certificate of title. Title and registration fees are due at the local county tax assessor-collector's office at the time the application for title is made. Liability insurance is required in Texas before these services are provided.
