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 enforcement to use their discretion and help remind (not cite) drivers with an expired sticker.

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.
