ANSWER: Under Texas laws, you should be able to buy and register the car because the main form you need to fill out is An Application for Texas Title which allows you to use a passport for identification purposes. However, obtaining a Texas driver's license is where you may run into a little bit of a problem as that requires proof of Texas residency for 30 days.
