Hi Folks, Please help if you can Got a weird problem, in a weird time (during the COVID period). Texas has closed all DMV/tax offices due to COVID, allowing only smaller subset of services via mail or phone or internet. I need to register my out-of-state purchased Ferrari to get my Texas title and plates. It's going to be several weeks at least before I get the title, so in order to use the car (like to get a safety inspection which I need to register the car), I need a temporary plate on the car. A temporary plate is not available via phone or internet, those are only issued in person at the vehicle tax office, per my local tax office customer service person (Dallas County Tax Office 214-653-7811). Tax office customer service did say I have an option, and that is to purchase a "Vehicle Transit Permit" via their website, which are typically only good for 5 days. However during the COVID period, Texas is allowing these to be used beyond 5 days like the 30-day temporary tag, which are physically not possible to acquire due to office closure. So great, right? I go to the site to get the Vehicle Transit Permit: https://permit.txdmv.gov/Permit/VTPermit/agree Enter VIN number, which is required. Site returns "Is the VIN correct? Please try again." And the process fails, cannot proceed. This HAS TO BE because the car is a Ferrari, and their database knows nothing about that VIN number or VIN style, something like that. That is my guess. So...I'm on hold again (it'll be another 30 minutes or so+) for tax office customer service, to see what they recommend I do, if there is even an option at this point. >> Has anyone else had a problem like this? >> Does anyone know someone in the Dallas area, like a car dealer, that I could somehow get a temporary tag by proxy through that person? I'm a totally legit person here trying to do the normal / right thing registering a used car, and really confused what to do!
