TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING & REGULATION

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (Department) is reviewing the Tow Trucks, Operators, and Vehicle Storage Facilities program rules located at Title 16, Texas Administrative Code, Chapters 85 and 86, for re-adoption, revision, or repeal. This rule review is required every four years.

The Notice of Intent to Review was published in the Texas Register on October 9, 2020 (45 TexReg 7281), as part of a combined notice for several other programs undergoing simultaneous review.

The Department will determine whether the reasons for adopting or readopting these rules continue to exist by answering the following questions for each rule:

Is it obsolete?

Does it reflect current legal and policy considerations?

Is it in alignment with the current procedures of the Department?

The Department encourages anyone interested in the Tow Trucks, Operators, and Vehicle Storage Facilities program to review the Notice of Intent to Review and the current program rules for Towing and Vehicle Storage Facility posted on the Department’s website.

Private Property Towing for Expired Registrations

TDLR Updates

Private Property Towing for Expired Registration

Question: Can I perform a private property tow for a vehicle with an expired registration?

Answer: No. On March 13, 2020, Governor Greg Abbott issued a proclamation, declaring a state of disaster for all counties in Texas due to the threat of COVID-19. Governor Abbott also issued a statement on March 16, 2020, granting a temporary extension to obtain an initial registration and renewal of registration for a vehicle. Tex. Occ. Code § 2308.253 (d) and (e) prohibit the towing of vehicles from private property on the basis of an expired license plate or registration unless certain requirements are met. Due to the extension granted for obtaining the initial registration or renewal of registration for a vehicle, tow companies may not tow vehicles from private property for expired registration or renewals until further notice.
