Motor Vehicle Registration
As a Texas Resident, state law requires you to register and title your vehicle. Registrations can be renewed at any Tax Office location. A current safety inspection is required no more than 90 days before your vehicle registration expiration. A Vehicle Inspection Report (VIR) may be required at time of registration. For an additional convenience fee, registrations can also be renewed at any of the authorized 20 auto title service locations throughout Bexar County. For added accessibility, and if you have a current renewal notice from the State, you may renew your registration for vehicles at any HEB store in Bexar County. The grocery store registration is available daytime, evenings and weekends. Please note there is a $1.00 fee for this service and is available only to Bexar County residents. In the event your registration is expired, it will be necessary for you to visit one of the four Bexar County Tax Office locations. Please be certain to have current proof of insurance with you at the time of your renewal.
Registration window stickers may also be renewed by mail. Send your renewal form, a photo copy of proof of insurance and your check for the registration amount PLUS $1.00 to: Bexar County Tax Office, P. O. Box 839950, San Antonio, Texas 78283-3950. Please allow up to 15 days for processing of your new window sticker (or new plates) by mail.
