COUNTY EQUIPMENT GUIDE: New policies and procedures for TxDMV-issued workstations and consumable supplies

Texas Department of Motor Vehicles

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

Attached please find a draft of the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles’ (TxDMV) County Equipment Guide for your review. This guide is a reference document that was designed to provide tax assessor-collectors and their offices with information regarding requirements and procedures related to department-issued workstations and consumable supplies.

With over 3,000 workstations currently issued at county offices and full service deputy locations across the state, it was imperative that we review our procedures with the goal to improve efficiencies for all stakeholders. We determined that changes to current practices would result in a more streamlined process and better use of state resources. To that end, TxDMV plans to implement the updated policies and procedures that are outlined in the guide on September 1, 2019.

The County Equipment Guide will be a topic of discussion at the upcoming Tax Assessor-Collectors Association of Texas conference during the general session on Tuesday, June 11. Please take time to review the guide in advance of the conference as there will be a question and answer session following the presentation. After the conference, we will put the finishing touches on the guide and publish it to the tax assessor-collectors information hub at

Thank you for your continued commitment to providing quality service to Texas motorists, and I look forward to seeing you next month.
