RMV’s Expired Inspection Sticker Reminder Campaign
The MA RMV has begun an email campaign to remind customers
with an expired inspection sticker that it’s time to get their annual safety
and emissions inspection. They will email all customers with active
registrations, an expired sticker, and an email address on file in ATLAS. While
driving without a valid inspection sticker is a traffic violation that may
result in a fine and impact individual insurance rates, the RMV has asked law

All vehicles registered in Massachusetts must pass a yearly
vehicle emissions and safety inspection, also known as the Massachusetts
Vehicle Check Program, which is essential to the safety of the Commonwealth’s
environment and roadways.
At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, some extensions
were granted to annual inspection stickers expiring between March and May of
2020. Those extensions have since expired and no further extensions are
planned. There are 1,800 local inspection stations across Massachusetts that
are open for business and conducting inspections safely in accordance with
state public health guidelines and safety protocols. Customers are encouraged
to visit the Inspection Station Locator to find a location near them and plan
their trip to update their sticker.
