Yes, assuming Dallas County (or Texas), download VTR-262 Affidavit of Heirship for Motor Vehicle here and follow instructions. All heirs must sign (if the vehicle was community then just you). Must be filed with changle of title at local assessors office.

Also beware that your home probably needs to be probated as well, along with other accounts not in JTWROS or beneficiary driven.

Good Luck!
