Vehicle Registrations Now Offered At Canyon Lake Store

Brookshire Brothers Brings Convenience to Vehicle Registrations  

Lufkin, TX – Brookshire Brothers now offers Motor Vehicle Registration Renewals in partnership with the Comal County Tax Office. Their mutual customers can now get their renewals at the Brookshire Brothers Canyon Lake location.
 Brookshire Brothers Store Front
Instead of driving out to the Comal County Tax Office, motorists will now have the chance to conveniently renew their vehicle registration while shopping for groceries. All motorists need is proof of auto insurance and verification that the car safety inspection is current prior to renewing the registration.
 
Tax Assessor-Collector Cathy C. Talcott says, “Because Comal County covers such a large territory, I was delighted when Brookshire Brothers eagerly accepted our offer to bring this service to fruition.  The only location in the Canyon Lake area has been the Tax Office branch in Sattler, so the FM 306 location in the western part of the county is a great benefit to our tax payers.”
 
Brookshire Brothers, located at 18275 FM 306, has been working with the Tax Office for several months to provide this service at the Canyon Lake store. Brookshire Brothers will process the renewals at the Customer Service desk from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, seven days a week.  This gives customers more flexibility since the County’s vehicle registration hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
 
Those wishing to renew their vehicle registrations must do so within the five grace days of expiration.  If expired five days after the deadline, they will need to visit their County Tax Office.  Customers must bring with them the renewal notice they received in the mail, as well as proof of insurance, and must be sure their vehicle has been inspected within 90 days of the expiration date.
