Texas License Plate Lookup
Would you like to find out who owns a vehicle
by running a Texas license plate lookup?
By Steve Cook – Austin, Texas
Several years ago a car kept parking in my spot in the office building where I worked. I did not want to have the car towed without contacting the owner, but I didn’t know how to find out who the owner was. First, I tried contacting the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. After being on hold and getting transferred more times than I can remember, I finally connected with a live Texas bureaucrat who told me that the Texas DMV would not release any information to me.
I ran a Google search on the terms “texas license plate search” and “texas license plate lookup”. I found a lot of websites that claimed that they could find the owner of a Texas vehicle from it’s license plate number. I researched these websites and, in my opinion, most of them were inadequate or downright scams.
Welcome to license plate lookup Bureaucray!
Next, I started searching deeper into the websites of the Texas DMV and the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT). After much trial & error I found out that there was a license plate search hard-copy form I could fill out and take to a TXDOT office. The form had a list of approved reasons for a Texas license plate search so I chose the appropriate option, and for a fee, I got my Texas license plate report.
Long story short: I invested a lot more time doing research to find a way to run a Texas license plate lookup online. I’m a website designer in Austin, Texas so I built this website, which will allow anyone to perform a Texas license plate search. I can usually email a report back to you within 24 hours. If I can’t find the Texas license plate number you were looking for I will refund your payment… period.
