  • North Carolina tags being expired for inspection violations

    Hey all,

    We have quite a few vehicles from North Carolina come through our jurisdiction and I've had the chance to pull over a couple that showed expired status with an inspection violation, but the date of expiration had actually not come about yet.

    Example: I run the tag, shows expired - inspection violation, current date is June 1, but doesn't expire until June 15.

    Is this normal up there or is this a mistake on the DMV? I told all parties to contact the North Carolina DMV because I wasn't sure what else to tell them. Georgia doesn't have vehicle inspections, apart from emissions testing.
    There once was a man who said: "Though,
    it seems that I know that I know,
    what I'd like to see is the I that knows me,
    when I know that I know that I know."

    Not a mistake; motorist are given a 15-day grace period.

      Cool. I guess I'll just tell them to get it fixed then.

        Yup. It's "limited expired." That 15 days is their grace period.

          Limited Expired refers to the tax and tag together program. When you purchase a car, your tax is due. However, you can opt for a 90 day grace period to pay the tax and are then issued an orange sticker with a "T"; the "T" meaning temporary. If you fail to pay your tax at the end of that time your registration is considered expired.

            I did not know that. I always just went by our dispatchers reading back a tag in that grace period as "limited expired" as part of the legal definition. That's what I get for not working enough traffic. Thanks for the heads up.
