Texas Resident (Located Out of State)
You must register your vehicle in the state or jurisdiction where you currently live, unless you are a full-time student or active military. If your vehicle is currently out of state and you are unable to complete a Texas vehicle inspection, you will be able to self-certify that the vehicle is out of state by completing form VTR-270. Once the vehicle returns to Texas you must complete a Texas vehicle inspection within three days of arrival at your destination.
