1. Register to vote:
In order to vote in Texas, you must be registered to vote. You can register online at www. votexas.gov or by filling out a voter registration form and mailing it in.
2. Get a driver’s license:
If you’re moving to Texas from out of state, you’ll need to get a driver’s license. You can apply for a driver’s license online at www. dps.texas.gov/DriverLicense/online_application.htm or in person at your local Department of Public Safety (DPS) office.
3. Find a new doctor:
When moving to a new state, it’s important to find a new doctor as soon as possible. You can search for doctors in Texas on the Texas Medical Board website at www. tmb.state.tx.us/physicians/.
4. Set up utilities and cable/internet:
When moving into a new home, you’ll need to set up utilities such as electricity, water, and gas, as well as cable and internet service. You can call the utility companies or go online to set up a service.
5. Transfer car registration and insurance:
If you’re bringing your car with you when you move to Texas, you’ll need to transfer your car registration and insurance over to Texas. You can do this by visiting the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) website at www. txdmv.gov/.
6. Pack up your belongings and move!:
The best way to make sure nothing is forgotten when moving is to create a checklist and pack everything up before you go. Make sure you have plenty of boxes and packing tape, and label each box clearly with what it contains so that unpacking is easy once you get to your new home.
7. Unpack your belongings and settle in:
Once you’ve moved into your new home, take some time to unpack everything and put everything where it belongs. This may take a few days or weeks, but eventually, everything will be unpacked and in its place!
8. Start exploring your new community:
One of the best things about moving to a new state is getting to explore all the new places there are to see and things there are to do! Start by checking out the local Chamber of Commerce website or by driving around town and seeing what there is to do. Welcome to Texas!
