Confused about new North Carolina inspection and registration renewal program (no more stickers)?
We in NC used to have stickers on our windshields that told us when our cars and trucks needed to be inspected. And when they got inspected every year, the guys gave us a new sticker. Very simple.
Now there are no more stickers. I got a registration card (to renew my license plate) in the mail and when I tried to renew online, I got the error message you see here: "An Error has Occurred. Service can not continue due to a safety or safety/emissions violation. Please contact 888-999-3044(8-7 Est.st.Time M-F) "
I called the guy and he admitted most people don't understand what's happening with the registration renewal. But it boils down to something pretty simple:
When you get your notice in the mail that it's time to renew your registration, it's time to get an inspection.
Get your car or truck inspected, the place should electronically beam its approval to the DMV, and you will magically be cleared to renew your license.
This is a public service announcement. Now I'm going out to get my truck inspected.
