  • Texas Inspection Sticker Abolition

    Starting March 1st, the great State of Texas is abolishing vehicle inspection stickers. Inspection will still be necessary, but the stickers will not be issued anymore. Instead, proof of inspection will lie with the receipt of the vehicle registration sticker: you won't be able to obtain a vehicle registration sticker if you have not passed an inspection.

    I think it's a great idea & it gets rid of that disgusting clutter on my windshield and I don't have to use as much Goof-Off to remove the adhesive after replacing the stickers.

    My question is: can we take off all of our inspection stickers (even if they have a few months left on them) starting March 1st? I looked around for an answer on the DMV site and elsewhere and I haven't found one.

    Thanks in advance.

    Not unless you've renewed your plate. If the last digit on the registration sticker isn't a 6, you need the inspection sticker. (To the best of my knowledge.)

      Wow! That is an interesting way of doing it. In some states, they won't let you inspect the vehicle until AFTER you renew your registration.

      Then again, there are other states that have gotten rid of their annual inspections altogether.

      The comments above reflect my personal opinion as a private citizen, ordinary motorist and all-around good guy.

        Expired inspection is one of my most common PC's to stop during the day. I don't have radar so I guess my productivity will go down....darnit!

              Yep, those along with brake lamps and seat belts. However, I haven't written a no seat belt ticket in years. I tore it up while on bike patrol, though.

                  When I was young and living in MO, that's the way it was done... inspection first. If it didn't pass, no plates.
