If you don't have the EZ tag, then yes, just go to the full service line and pay the $1.50
Or go to the "coins only" line if you have all coins. (those gold dollar coins are good for this)

I ordered a TxTag a few days ago. I'm always worried about slipping in the toll tag lag as there's so much oil there.

I have the tag under the seat of both my bikes and its 50/50 whether it registers or not. HCTRA will check your license against their accounts and deduct it accordingly.

If you have a spare wrist band put it around your reservoir and stick your money in there wrapped around a dollar. Makes it a lot easier if you don't have an EZ Tag. Just pull it out and hand it over. I've had dollars in there at triple digit speeds and they don't even move.
