TWO STEPS, ONE STICKER

After passing an inspection, drivers will get an inspection report. They’ll take it with them to get a registration sticker at the Montgomery County Tax Officer.

There are three possible scenarios:

  • If your stickers expire in the same month, you have 90 days prior to getting your inspection done, ahead of re-registering your vehicle.
  • If your inspection expired before your registration. Get your inspection when it expires. This time you won’t get a sticker, just an inspection report. Then, go to the tax office with that report when your registration is due and get one sticker for both.
  • If your inspection expires after your registration, you’re in luck. When you go to get your car registered, your inspection is still current. So you’ve got one more cycle before you’ve got to get your car inspected again.
