TEXAS - Starting August 1, Texas vehicle inspection stickers will feature a western cowboy motif. Various images of cowboys will appear on different types of inspection stickers. The new stickers are rolling out over the next several months across the state.
"We wanted to present a new certificate design that was immediately identifiable as being Texan," said JoJo Heselmeyer, director of Vehicle Services for the DPS.
Texas issues 10 different inspection certificate designs, dependent upon factors such as the age of the vehicle, whether it is designated as a commercial vehicle and whether emissions testing is required.
Inspection certificates issued in previous years will remain valid until their listed expiration dates.
