My registration in Texas expires on the 1 of November and I am driving here on the 8th.

I will probably go to the DMV the following week. Would there be any implications due to the Texas registration being expired?

Thank you!

You will need a vehicle inspection since you're bringing the vehicle from out state, which has to be done in person at DMV. In theory the DMV guys at the inspection station could hassle you about driving an unregistered vehicle to DMV. Not sure if they do.

If you wanted to play it safe, you could first go to the DMV (with the title) and ask for a temporary movement permit. That would allow you to get it to the inspection station, legally. Unfortunately that requires an extra trip and standing in line at the DMV.

Obviously also you could get pulled over any time you're driving the vehicle between the 1st and 8th.

Just get a drive away permit in texas (easiest safest solution) but to answer your question no, you shouldn't have any problem unless you get pulled over while y out plates are rxpired. I registered a vehicle from Tx that had plates which had been expired for months (due to check engine light). There were no fines involved or anything. They just asked if I had been driving it while expired and I said "no" (I have two other vehicles anyway).

I would just get a driveaway permit in TX though, you REALLY don't want to have to deal with the cops here and potential costs assoviated with being pulled over.

You will need to get Nv car insurance and a Nevada drivers license before you can register the car. In Henderson,btw, you can make an online appt. at the dmv so be sure to do that or you will wait hours in line. And when you have an appt go straight inside. Don’t get in line outside with the fools w/o an appointment.
