Just wondering, how many have delayed their vehicle sticker renewals? I think all our vehicles are a few months out-of-date already but last time I was out, I looked around the parking lot and noticed many were current.

THE TEMPORARY WAIVER OF VEHICLE TITLE AND REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

I haven't. No reason not to, I have the means. An inspection that takes 10min (the drive to and fro takes longer), then going online to do register via the website. Total process done in an hour. Yeah yeah, a couple dollars more after fees. No skin of my back, it pays for the convenience.

Also, it doesn't look good for me, someone who works where I do, to not maintain my civic responsibilities. I also have supervisors whom I am accountable too.
COVID19 has not been an excuse for me to let up on my responsibilities. I've showed up to work and everywhere else I've been expected to, COVID or not.

COVID19 has hampered an interfered with my recreational life - going out camping, hiking, or to the beach. That has irritated me.

It took me a while to get my Ninja 1000 registered back a few months ago. When the tax assessors office finally reopened (May 24th?), they were nice enough to waive the late fees, per governor's order. I got it done as soon as I could. There was no reason to take advantage of the grace period any longer than necessary. You won't save any money on renewals, as they would set the effective date to the same as what it would be if you had renewed on time. Besides, you never know what might happen later that may keep you from being able to do it when you have to.

One less thing to worry about and have to remember.

Online is so much better than standing in line. I won't be back at the tax office until I buy something.

Can't get my truck to pass inspection but that's another problem. The govs thing is just buying me time but I'm not driving much anyways.

I renewed a vehicle and a trailer registration online last Monday and registered a new to me VStrom at the Tax office last Wednesday. Was kicking myself, prior to going in, for not having done all the renewals at the Tomball Tax OffIce, since it took them 33 days to see me. Boy was I glad I did it that way. To say that the process at the TB. Tax Office was messed up was an understatement. Even though I had a confirmed month long standing appointment, they could not find me on the list. Then I had to wait b/c even though I was there on time they were already letting 10 am people in at 9:30 am thus cutting ahead of other with confirmed appointments as well. Once inside there were only three people working.

All I can say is I was glad I made it out of there with a new sticker and tag for the VStrom. Sure would have really stunk if something was not right with the paper work. Covid is a really handy excuse for some governmental entities to do even less than they normally do.

I did my truck and trailer recently. Lack of lines was great. Less than 10 minutes from walking in to walking out.

I took my car's registration to Tom Thumb back in August and it was fine. No wait and no hassle. It just took the time to go get it inspected and then to the store. I think Kroger also does vehicle registration.

I do my registration online. It was just a matter when I could find an inspection place open.

Got my new registration in the mail yesterday.
Really glad that I did not procrastinate.
Only able to do it online if it has not expired more than 2 months.
Great way to do it regardless of Covid or not.
