Texas Drivers License Heads Up

One of our very important business partners is Independence Title - our Escrow Officer is Autumn Cooke. 

Autumn has shared information important to folks closing on a real property - and, important for folks who drive! 

Gov. Greg Abbott granted a waiver in March of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which allowed Texans with driver's licenses expiring on or after March 13, 2020, to not have to renew them. Abbott's waiver ENDED on April 14, 2021.

So if your clients are still using an expired driver license, the title company now will have to obtain an alternative valid and unexpired form of government-issued photo ID at closing, or a renewed TXDL.

So, for all you drivers out there - Heads Up!
