New resident to Dallas - car registration?
You've probably seen my other posts. Moving to Dallas soon....curious what I should know about registering my car in the state, getting a new license, etc.?
I'm coming from Missouri....we have to get a safety check, an emissions test, show current insurance card, show last two personal property tax receipts, and pay roughly $40 for a year's worth registration (option to register for 2 years at $76).
I forget what it cost and what the process was for drivers license.
Same kind of thing in Texas, just without the personal property tax?
So my registration expires in Oct. '09 in Missouri. Is that good you think 'till the end of the month? I'm likely moving early Oct., so I didn't want to register my car in MO for another year if I didn't have to.
