Warning about late fees (Texas residents)


Apr 13, 2021
El Paso, Texas
I’d like to share my experience with registration and titling in Texas

I took delivery on June 11th. At the time I was not aware that If I did not complete my registration and title transfer by July 11th, I would be subject to late fees, totaling $192.16.

My registration packet from Tesla showed up on Wednesday July 7th, which would have left me 2 business days to complete my title transfer and registration without penalty. Unfortunately, I was out of town at the time and unable to complete the title transfer until July 12th, which was 1 day past the deadline.

Depending on when you receive your registration packet, you may only have a few days to complete your registration and title transfer without a penalty.
