Moving, be it across town or to another state, is a detail-oriented process that is further complicated by the fact that laws and regulations are far more often than not different in a resident’s new home than one’s old home. This fact is particularly true when it comes to getting a new driver’s license, vehicle registration and vehicle titling. Another of the most important challenges when moving to a new city is learning how to get around learning how to navigate around new streets and the location of important landmarks such as the airport.

Never fear–here’s some basic information on getting around in Austin, Texas:
