Ready for “Two Steps, One Sticker?”

There are two steps to get in compliance with the new one- sticker law:

  • Step 1:

    From March 1, 2015 through February 29, 2016. You may renew your registration if your vehicle has a current, passing inspection. However, if your inspection and registration stickers both expire in the same month your vehicle will need to pass inspection prior to registration renewal.

  • Step 2:

    Renew your annual registration online, by mail, or in-person at your county tax office. At the time of registration, your inspection status will be verified electronically. A current, passing inspection is required for registration renewal.

Starting March 1, 2016, you will have a convenient 90-day window to complete both your inspection and registration. Remember, your registration is valid through the last day of the registration expiration month.

New procedures can cause confusion. The state has created a website with more information to help car owners up to date on what to do, how much to pay, and when to renew:
