TX DMV Information
With a population nearing 30 million, it’s no wonder the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles has many outposts across the state.
Every office is open weekdays from 8 AM to 5 PM, with some locations offering additional early-morning and weekend hours. The DMV is notorious for long lines and wait times.
At the DMV, Texas residents can access services like driver’s license and identification card registration and renewal, vehicle registration, and license plate pick-up, as well as insurance information and services provided by the Texas Department of Insurance. Many services are available online and via U.S. Mail for convenience. Unfortunately, the Texas Department of Public Safety does not offer appointments. For the shortest wait times, avoid planning your visit on Mondays and Fridays or during lunch hours. Regardless of where you live in the Lone Star State, a DMV shouldn’t be too far.
The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles has hundreds of outposts, including regional service centers in El Paso, Midland-Odessa, Lubbock, Amarillo, Abilene, Wichita Falls, Austin, Waco, Fort Worth, Dallas, Longview, San Antonio, Pharr, Corpus Christi, Houston, and Beaumont.
