Texas by Texas

Meet Texas by Texas (or TxT for short), your personal, portable government assistant from Texas.gov. Now there’s an even easier, faster, and more secure way for Texans to take care of government to-dos – like upgrading or renewing your driver license, or renewing your vehicle registration – anytime, anywhere, and on any device.

Say hello to your new personal, portable government assistant

TxT is your account for Texas government and an official way to handle your Texas to-dos like driver license/ID renewal and replacement, vehicle registration renewal, and more.

Once you create your account with a Texas driver license or ID, TxT takes charge by keeping track of your upcoming deadlines, reminding you when it’s time to take action, and letting you wrap up transactions in just a few clicks.

It's government just the way you want it - powerful, personalized, and in your pocket. Create your account now at txt.texas.gov.

Create a secure account that’s unique to you

To create your own TxT account, you'll need a personal email address and a Texas driver license or ID. We’ve also added extra security steps to confirm your identity and make sure your account stays safe.   

Your TxT account lets you link and manage licenses and registrations with Texas government agencies that you’re probably already familiar with like the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV), Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), and Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR).

And we’re always working to add more agencies and services to TxT. 

Make TxT smarter with your personalized profile and account settings

Spending a little time personalizing your TxT account now will pay off later. We’ll guide you through the onboarding process so you can set up your profile, choose your notification preferences, add payment methods, and more.

That way, when it’s time to take care of business, all your information is in one place. And if you ever need to make changes, just sign into TxT and update your choices in account settings. 

Stay on track with your to-do list and proactive reminders

We know life is hectic! But now with TxT, you can use the handy to-do list to keep track of upcoming deadlines for the licenses and registrations that are linked to your account.

TxT also helps you avoid the “uh oh, I forgot" moments by sending proactive emails and text reminders when it’s time to take action
