Reminder: Scheduled Maintenance: RTS Release 9.1.1 (08/11/2018)

Good morning,

Over the weekend of August 11, 2018, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) will update the Registration and Title System (RTS) with Release 9.1.1 that contains the content summarized below.

  • New Maxeno framework run-time version for RTS Batch & Core online processes: This system framework upgrade brings RTS up to date in potentially increasing processing speed & Cognos Reports generation, allowing the nightly batch process to complete on time each night for our customers and business partners.
  • Inspection Fee Error (Title Transfer) Is Fixed: Solution: When processing a title transfer and Record Not Applicable is selected, RTS will not prompt for manual verification of inspection when an acceptable inspection is in the cloud and will not charge the inspection fee when that fee was paid previously. 
  • Inspection Fee Error (Replacement Plate) Is Fixed: Solution: Inspection fee is charged at registration renewal when a replacement plate was issued prior to renewal in a separate transaction.
  • Insufficient Funds Error (ACC004 Screen field-entry) Is Fixed: Solution: The maximum amount can be entered in the Insufficient Funds field of the ACC004 screen. 


A new specialty plate (in black) is available via My Plates. It can be ordered for passenger vehicles, trucks, motorcycles, and mopeds. This is a crossover plate, meaning the plate has moved from the state to the My Plates program.
