    Yes absolutely. The process requires for you to have insurance coverage at the very least the state minimums to register a vehicle. Here in Texas those minimums are $30,000 per person, $60,000 per total accident usually seen on a polciy as 30/60 split limit liabailty coverage. I would always encourage you to have enough liabililty coverage to protect your asset base. If your home or total assests are worth around $300,000, consider having a liability amount consisttant with this number such as 100/300. Thanks for your question.

    Yes, proof of liability insurance is required when registering a vehicle here in Texas.  Here are the specific requirements when registering your vehicle - and the instructions indicate - proof of current liability insurance is required.

    If you register by mail: registration renewal notices are mailed to all registered vehicle owners.  To register by mail, send the following to your county tax office:
    1. Renewal notice (keep the vehicle owner’s section for your records)
    2. Proof of current liability insurance
    3. All fees plus $1 mail-in fee

    In you register in person: take your registration renewal notice and proof of current liability insurance to your county or an approved substation.  Please also have:
    1. Your license plate number
    2. Vehicle identification number (VIN) or
    3. Registration receipt from the previous year

    That is a great question! Yes, you will need to have proof of insurance to register your car, and to have it inspected. It must be insurance from here in Texas, so if you show up at the registrar's office with your current out of State policy, they will turn you away. The car will have to be inspected annually, and current insurance coverage is required to do that also. Thanks for asking!
