Three Generations Strong

E. J. Dugas was appointed in 1956 by Governor, Earl K. Long. Well known to his community as Cousin E.J. ,the first French speaking DJ on KCIL, he created a loyal client base in East Houma. His first office was located on Howard Avenue. His marriage to Doris Guidroz Canter in 1968 caused a relocation to Engeron Street. His lifelong service to Terrebonne Parish ended when his commission expired in 1995.

His step-daughter, Sharon Canter Toups, joined along side him in 1984. In 1999 they began walking motor vehicle deals in to the Office of Motor Vehicles for their customers.  This led to an opportunity for a move to their current location on Simmons Drive in 2006 where they were able to open as a Public Tag Agency or as they like to call it "Your "Personal' Motor Vehicle Office".  This allowed them to serve the community in a greater way where customers could leave same day with their license plates with little to no wait. 

Sharon's husband, Robert C. Toups, joined her in 2001 then daughter, Haley N. Toups Tivet joined the team in 2010 making them 3 generations strong.

They pride themselves on their ability to serve their customers with a smile.  While they may be "big" on the outside, they are a small, family-oriented business on the inside.
