We moved here a couple months ago and its time for the dreaded steps of getting our cars registered. We have already had the cars inspected, and now we need the car registration before getting our TX drivers licenses. We live in Collin county. Website says we can go to tax office in Frisco. Please tell me they take appointments!!!!!! And if they don't, when do you recommend we go when the wait is not long? Can I complete the registration for my husbands car if he is not with me?

And then when we get our license....do THEY take appointments?

Try texas.gov to see how you can do it. I've never heard of appointments so I think you need to take a personal day(s) to get them done. The good news is that renewals are through the mail or on-line, but I think the first ones mean you're gonna STAND IN LINE. Sorry. On drivers licenses I've been able to get a TX one without any testing just by providing my out of state one.

Make sure you check what documents you need to bring because if you forget one after standing in line, you're sol.

Car registration is no big deal. It took my husband maybe 15 minutes. The drivers licenses, however are through DPS. I was warned it would be a nightmare, and it took us a full two hours. Besides required documentation, all that is needed is a vision test if your license is still valid in orignial state.

Go the the Lewisville office, it's off Main just west of I-35 IIRC.
