TX: out of state vehicle registration

My vehicle registration is up at the end of May.  Tx allows you to do it 90 days in advance and given the vagaries of mail forwarding I figured I should get started.

One of the complications I wasn’t looking forward to was the mandatory inspection problem - turns out it’s not a big deal if your vehicle is out of state.  You click that it’s out of state and continue.  The state flags your registration “inspection required” so if/when you come back to Tx you have a 3 days to get it dealt with.  Fair enough.

I think this is the first time I remember getting an online discount (-$1, see screenshot) instead of having to pay extra for doing it online.
