Out of State Title

I am looking at geting a bike that has a California title on it. I was told it is harder to get a out of state title transfered to a Texas title.
Is this true? Is there any special paper work you have to do??

just called the dmv. its actually quite easy if you have all the paper work. for out of state you basically need insurance and an out of state inspection paper wicth is only a dollar more for the form when you get the inspection

1. Insurance
2. Out of State Inspection aka "The Green Form"
3. Title correctly signed. huge emphasis on correctly
4. Request for title transfer properly signed or notarized receipt from dealership. Form 130-U
5. Check or Cash

Title Only is minus insurance and inspection. Rest should stay the same.

First you said street legal super moto, so that's why I answered in full.

No problem then. All you have to do is tell them you want a title transfer without registration. I believe you will still need the U130 form filled out.

You will have to pay the appropriate amount of taxes. If you want to later make it street legal, then you will have to get inspection and registration but will not have to pay taxes again.

YES and if the signature or handwriting is different from the title, they might give you depending on how much the person behind the counter hates their life.

The signatures have to be actual. Faxed copies won't fly. When I bought my S83 from Indiana, I emailed the seller the U130, have him fill out his part, signed it and snail-mailed it back to me. Even if you are in a hurry and have to overnight the paperwork, it's not that expensive.

When I moved here, I had to have an inspection to bring the car and bike into TX. Bike was $85, and took 2 hours. Car was $135, and took 2 days.

I'll have to check my paperwork but I'm pretty sure you don't pay tax on an offroad only title. You pay the tax when you title it for road use and register it. I'm almost 100% sure when I titled the kx the first time just to get it in my name it cost me about $37, then the second time when I went to pick up a plate is when I paid the tax.

This is correct. I bought my 848 from Cali and it's never going to see the road so for a "limited title" the cost was only 25 or 37 bucks. California calls them "off highway" titles.

Don't really know about "off-road titles". Just that is the way galveston county did it for last 2 bikes I've bought, but they were both road bikes.

I saw street legal. if so, you will need:

1) Properly signed title
2) Insurance
3) Inspection w/ VI-30B form.
4) money to pay for it all.



this is the standard procedure. done it many times. doesn't help that im an inspector as well...

This is true. I've bought cars and bikes from out of state, and it's just the green form that is extra from the regular state inpection. Of course you are not supposed to operate the vehicle on public road before you are able to get it titled and registered, so how are you supposed to get the vehicle to the inspection station and back? The answer is you either trailer it, or... you get creative.
