Question louisiana to texas title transfer HELP!!!

Ive heard this could be complicated although I have no way of knowing. I just bought a 1989 240sx coupe and it has a louisiana title on it, and I want to transfer it to a texas title. How do I go about this? what do i need? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

idk why it would be difficult...i bought my car from florida i just took it to the title transfer place (dmv i guess like matt said) and i explained to them that i just bought the car from florida and i need to get it registered in texas. they will tell you everything you need to do, its really not complicated. all i had to do was show them the original out of state title, get my car inspected (tell the inspection shop you need an inspection certificate because thats what you show the dmv) and have proof of insurance. then i went back and showed proof of insurance and inspection, obviously you need your DL as well. but as far as i remember that was pretty much it.

i think i ended up paying like 98 dollars...






they gave me my plates and registration sticker and i was off.




ALSO tell them the car was a gift :P you only have to pay like 10 bucks compared to a percentage of what you paid for the car

inspection certification,
proof of liability insurance,
the vehicle's odometer reading if it is less than 10 years old,
an original out-of-state title, proof of registration, proof of sales tax payment or current foreign/military ownership document,
completed Form VTR 130-U, and
the following fees:
registration fee,
title application fee of $28 or $33, depending on the county, and
new resident tax of $90.
Additional fees may also be due at the time of registration. For more information, contact your county tax office. For information about the new resident tax, contact the Comptroller of Public Accounts.

Active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces and non-resident, full-time students attending a Texas college or university are not required title or register their vehicles in Texas.

Driver License

New residents are required to get a Texas driver license within 90 days of moving to Texas.

For more information, read our FAQs or Put Texas in your corner®.
