Most states have systems in place to dangle that vehicle registration you need right beyond your reach until you correct an issue you've overlooked. It's called the Vehicle Registration Withholding Program in Virginia, and a vehicle registration block in Texas. Whatever the name, you get the idea - your wheels won't be road-legal until you get the problem straightened out.
Don't let your insurance lapse
What to do
In all likelihood, however, you probably received some sort of notice in the mail to alert you that there's a potential problem. Virginia's DMV will notify you if you have any outstanding payments due that could block your registration. Texas will send you two notices if your toll violations are getting out of hand.
