TGM is 100% correct! Here are the Texas Department of Transportation web sites for info on getting a Texas Driver License and registering a car.

If you obey all the traffic laws and don't get into an accident, we will never know. If, on the other hand, you can't keep out of trouble and you get pulled over by law enforcement, it could result in a ticket.

If I pull someone over with an out of state driver license and registration, I always ask if they are visiting or living here. Speaking only for myself, if you told me you had been here 2-3 months, the most I would do is tell you about the law and make sure you know where to go to get it done - Unless, of course, I got you driving recklessly or screaming through a school zone - then any & all violations are fair game.

You sound like a generous man of the law... Are you this generous if say... I've been living in and loving Texas for about 11 months and I NEVER speed or really... actually... do anything against the law (seriously)... EXCEPT procrastinate to go get my stinkin driver's lisence... which I ALWAYS have on my "to do" list?... (I really do)... Gosh, I REALLY need to get that done tomorrow. I will. For sure this time. Sorry nice policeman.

pioneer8's first impression was correct. I am a man, but I go by the title of "Corporal" at work.

And for Bellestar - the nurse defense in traffic only works if you are an ER nurse.
