Time To Renew That Vehicle Title And Registration In 2021
So when Covid hit back in March a lot of businesses shut down. They became online only. Even a lot of doctor appointments became a Televisit. Which was kind of cool. We also were all told that if our tags on our car expired not to worry about it.
Well that is coming to an end. Mine expired back in March. So I got my inspection and then got online and renewed. This was before covid even hit. I wish I wouldn't because I could have saved me some money.
I mean according to a post I saw on Facebook yesterday from the Amarillo Police Department the temporary waiver ends on April 14th. So about the same time as the tax deadline. That has to be some kind of good news. Right? Oh and I will already be due for my next years registration. Yay me.
I, of course, wouldn't wait until the deadline as I am sure that will up your wait time to get your car inspected. Oh and if you happen to be one of those who like to wait in line instead of going on-line. I don't get that but hey. Who am I to judge. I am simple and like to get the inspection and go online the next day to renew my tags and registration. Waiting too long could cause a delay in getting it mailed off to you.
Here is the official word:
