A: You should be able to do in Louisiana, if you are the only heir, or if the remaining heirs sign off. Do you have the vehicles/registration info? And title info? You can do still do with a lost title, but it is an affidavit -- you have to attest to the circumstances - any will probated in Texas? And, then confirm you are the rightful heir to receive either by will or intestate law. I recommend you call an OMV or notary that specializes in OMV transfers to confirm you have all in order before proceeding.
