BTW, 15 day grace period on registration, 5 days on inspection, and 30 days on DL.
Thanks!

I know you have a grace period, but there's an Alberton's next door to me. I'd have to go all the way to Park and 75 after today. Plus peace of mind since i'm on probation and the cops will be out in full force tonight AND I have a smart mouth! :D

it's 5 working days on registration, DL expires on birthdate (no grace period), inspection expires on the last day of the month shown on sticker (no grace period).

If you get a ticket for inspection, in Dallas, they will give you 10 days to get it taken care of, and then if you bring proof you got it fixed, they dismiss the ticket. I went through that, just about 3 weeks ago.

the inspection is similar to registration in that if you get it renewed within the 10 working days, they can only charge you a $10 fee and dismiss it, but it can't be expired for more than 60 days.

No it's not and I wish people would quit talking out of their ass on things like this. It just makes you look dumber! I'm right and you're wrong, OK?

you should probably recheck your sources because it's sure not texas law.

I guess the PD he worked for must have taught him wrong :rolleyes: OR, it's possible that the laws have changed since he last worked for the PD. You could both be right for different time periods.
