Art:"When we lived in Maynardville, TN there was never a line and they knew my name and where I lived. There was a little courthouse across the street from the barber shop and that is where we went to renew the tags to our car. It was wonderful. And oh yeah, it cost us $24.00/year."

Well, in TX, you need to get your car to a testing station once a year for the smog test....... and they send in the results to the state. Then you can renew on line for the next year.

The nearest testing station is about 2 miles from the house and it is typically a half hour wait to get through. Smog test and they check the brakes and lights. Places all over in my town for testing.

It's now about $70/car to renew the stickers on the windshield. The plates stay the same for 10 years then they send you new ones.

I think in FL it's every other year and you got to take your car miles and miles to a big state testing center. I remember doing that for my mom......took a couple hours between the drive (20 miles) and the wait.....
