Please review and distribute as appropriate.
The department received a request to clarify what is an acceptable form of weight certificate in support of an application for Texas title or registration. 
A weight certificate can be acquired from:
-         a Texas public weigher or, 
-         an out-of-state source if the vehicle was previously titled in another state  or
-         any License and Weight Inspector of the Texas Department of Public Safety.  

The TxDMV has found that some weight certificates are not acceptable.  In order to minimize the rejection of weight certificates from public weighers the following minimum specifications are required on the certificate:
(1) the date that the weight was taken;
(2) the name and address of company; 
(3) the signature of the weigher; and 
(4) the weight is mechanically printed (not hand written).
Acceptable out-of-state weight certificates should include comparable information.  If the Texas or out-of-state weight certificate does not meet the above criteria the county may require the owner to obtain a new weight certificate that satisfies these requirements.
If you have any questions or need any additional information please contact your local Vehicle Titles and Registration Division Regional Office.

If you have any comments or suggestions concerning this VTR communication process, please contact your local VTR Regional Office.
