New Bike Registration in Texas

Guys, I searched and read all the threads regarding registration and none seemed applied to my case so here it is....


I'm going to get a new bike from an out of state dealer (save some $). Anyways, it will be paid off at time of purchase. I think I have 20 days or so to register it in Texas & pay tax after the purchase date (dealer out of state won't charge tax at the time of transaction). So needless to say, I won't have insurance right away when I bring her home...but I want to get the registration/tax out of the way first. Does registration require proof of insurance for new/paid off bike? Second question is do I need to do inspection too for new bike? (new cars are exempted from inspection for 2 years..not sure about bike though).

Thanks for the inputs.

yes, you have to have ins. for registration, and yes your bike will have to be TX inspected and proof of ins. there as well.

I went through this when I got my bike. You definately need to get insurance first. Then go for your inspection. When you get it inspected they will give you a special piece of paperwork to get it registered since its an out of state vehicle. Don't lose that form. Once you get that done your able to go and get your bike registered. Try not to be past the state allowed time or they charge you a small late fee.
