REMINDER NOTE: Electronic liens recorded on Texas motor vehicle records must be released electronically by the lender at the time a lien is paid in full, as specified in the Electronic Lien Title Specifications Document. If a third party pays off the lien, the lender must release the lien electronically and request a paper title to be printed and mailed to the third party.


You should continue to issue a Combination license plate based on a manufacturer's rated carrying capacity of more than one ton in RTS until programming is completed next year.
