KILLEEN, TX — The Bell County Vehicle Registration Killeen Annex office has been closed until July 2 after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

The closure came after the Bell County Public Health District recommended that the office must be closed for 14 days from the most recent day the employee was at the office. That day was Wednesday, June 17, according to Shay Luedeke, the Bell County Tax Assessor-Collector.

Luedeke says customer appointments for the Killeen Vehicle Registration office have been canceled.

Belton and Temple offices are currently open by appointment only and customers can contact them if they have urgent business.

The Killeen Annex office will reopen July 2.

Governor Abbott issued a statement on March 16, 2020, granting a temporary extension to obtain initial registration, renewal of registration, vehicle titling, and renewal of a permanent disabled parking placard. Governor Abbott also granted a temporary extension for an individual with an expired 30-day temporary permit to obtain another permit or Texas registration. This temporary waiver is in effect until 60 days after TxDMV notifies the public that normal vehicle registration, vehicle titling and related services have resumed.

You may still go online to www.txdmv.gov and renew your registration online.
