Motor vehicle dealers, salvage dealers, and industry licensees operating in Texas may now apply for, renew, or amend motor vehicle licenses online. The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) replaced its paper-based licensing system with eLICENSING, an online self-service hub for all motor vehicle licensees and salvage dealers operating in Texas. The new system became available in March 2017.
eLICENSING provides many user benefits, including 24-hour access to licensing information, the elimination of paper processing, the ability to submit license applications and payments online, a guided application process facilitating faster approvals, and the ability to track the progress of submitted applications.
To receive email updates regarding eLICENSING, please visit www.TxDMV.gov/subscribe and check the box beside the Dealers and Manufacturers subscription topic.
