Subject: New Boat Registration Information and Titling System Icon


These documents contain text of correspondence sent by TxDOT to the county tax assessor-collectors, statutory agents who provide vehicle registration and titling services for citizens in Texas. This information is provided to apprise the general public of issues affecting the state's vehicle titling and registration process.


To provide information about the new Boat Registration Information and Titling System icon visible on Registration and Titling System (RTS) workstations.


The Vehicle Titles and Registration Division (VTR) is pleased to be supporting an interagency agreement between the Texas Department of Transportation and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPW). This systems allows tax office personnel in participating counties to access TPW's Boat Registration Information and Titling System (BRITS) utilizing our RTS workstations.

On January 4, 2006, TPW introduced a new web-enabled system that adds a new "BRITS" icon to the start menu on RTS workstations. Although the icon is visible on all RTS workstations, it will be active only for counties that have elected to utilize the new system. For participating counties, selecting the "BRITS" icon will launch the remote desktop. The old "TPW" icon will be removed from the start menu at a later date.


Participating counties should have already received training and materials from TPW, including guidelines for reporting problems. For assistance in enabling a workstation to connect to TPW's application, please contact the RTS Help Desk at 1-877-933-2020 or (512) 302-2020. All other questions, including those involving boat registration and titling, as well as password issues, should be directed to TPW at 1-800-792-1192 or (512) 389-4357.


If you have any questions or need any additional information, please contact your local Vehicle Titles and Registration Division Regional Office. You may also call Mike Craig, Deputy Director, at (512) 465-7570.
