Do Out-of-state Drivers Pay Texas Tolls
Yes, out-of-state drivers need to pay Texas tolls. The toll payment method depends on the Texas toll facilities you use.
Refer to How to pay Texas tolls to learn about various Texas tolls tags- TxTag, K-Tag, PIKE PASS etc. for payment on the go. If you don’t have a valid tag, it will be counted as a missed toll. Refer to How to Pay Missed Toll in Texas for more details.
In the case of North Texas, the driver will receive an invoice at his DMV-registered address. But for this, your license plate must have enough activity on toll roads viz. either after three missed transactions or $2.50 in tolls.
