March 6, 2015

Say goodbye to the sticker.

This month, state motor vehicle officials began the transition to having just one sticker for vehicle inspection and registration, and vehicle owners will follow two steps to get their one sticker.

Beginning last Sunday, Texas stopped issuing vehicle inspection stickers and changed to a “Two Steps, One Sticker” inspection and registration program. Under the new system, Texas vehicle owners will need to pass inspection prior to renewing their registration. The familiar blue-bordered registration sticker will serve as proof of both inspection and registration.
