We're six months into a confusing transition period between the old way and the new way NC DMV handles car safety and emissions inspections.
How's it going for you and your car?
In November, DMV stopped issuing windshield stickers as proof of inspections, and switched to a new schedule that will shift everybody's inspection date to the same month they renew their car registrations.
I'd like to know how this transition is working. Please let me hear from you at 919-829-4527 or by e-mail at email@example.com. Don't forget to include your name and daytime contact info. Did you get your car inspected on time, or did you blow it off? Are you clear about when your inspection is due?
After the change is phased in by November 2011, inspection and registration will be due the same month for every car. Drivers will be required to have current inspections before they get new or renewed registrations.
In the interim, some people will be allowed to go longer than a year between inspections -- some 13 months, some as much as 23 months -- until the two dates are synchronized for everybody.
