Electronic Renewal Notice Opt-in

Texas Department of Motor Vehicles

Please review and distribute as appropriate.

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV), in partnership with Texas.gov, enhanced online renewal with an application called Texas by Texas (TxT). TxT is a “personalized digital assistant” allowing customers to conduct transactions easier, faster, and more securely. Customers may create a personal account, link their vehicle(s) for quick checkout, and establish a user profile that includes stored preferences. The TxT web-based and mobile applications are currently active, and customers may renew their vehicle registration through either application.

To save paper and postage costs for the State of Texas, we are implementing Electronic Renewal Notice Opt-in to provide customers with delivery options for their registration renewal notice. This functionality is scheduled to be available May 19, 2022, through both the TxT web-based application and mobile application.

Customers will see a message "Do you want to go paperless?" during the renewal process flow and be presented with the following options for how they would like to receive their registration renewal notice in 2023:

  • Paperless – email only
  • Email and mail
  • Mail only

After making a selection, customers will receive their registration renewal notice based on the delivery option selected. If paperless or email and mail option is selected, customers will receive their vehicle registration renewal notice via email, which can be printed if needed. All delivery method options will contain the same information.

Thank you,
