    I am embarrassed to admit that I just got scammed by the website
    I was navigating in the DMV’s online web site and somehow ended up at the site without even being aware of it. I thought that I was completing a form for license renewal and then I was taken for $25.00 and change for some guide that was sent to me by email.

  2. On December 5, 2018 I went to the TXDPS website to renew my drivers license, which expires January 2019. I somehow was linked to to provide all required information and pay for a new driver’s license to sent to my home.
    Well, today is is February 15, 2019 and still no driver’s license. I called TXDPS customer service and waited 49 minutes to speak with someone.

    In the meantime I checked my bank statement online and found the charges for my online renewal, however instead of one charge there were three charges from The first charge on December 6 was for $1, second charge on December 6 was for $3.00 and the third charge was made on December 10 for 19.99. I thought three separate charges was a little odd, however they added up to the required online renewal requirement of $24.

    Once I was connected with a TXDPS representative, I explained that I had not received my driver’s license to date and that I show on my bank statement three charges eg $1, $3, and $19.99. I was then informed that TXDPS had no record of me renewing online. I was also informed that TXDPS would only make one charge for renewing my drivers license, not three and it best to contact my bank to reverse the charges.

    I then looked up and started seeing scam and fraud information and that my renewal efforts in fact caught up within an online scam. How disappointing and so I am now writing this review to warn others on this scam!!
