Faded Inspection Stickers

2023 inspection stickers issued between January 1 and January 5, 2022 may appear faded on a vehicle’s windshield due to a printing issue (see image below). Vehicles that have these stickers have passed the annual inspection. Applus Technologies (our vendor) has provided new stickers to dealers and inspection stations and will provide outreach to affected customers with an option to come to a Motorist Assistance Center (MAC) to obtain a new sticker at no cost.

 RMV Sends Notice To Customers Regarding Missing Inspection Stickers (1/20/2022) 
   

RMV Sends Notice To Customers Regarding Missing Inspection Stickers

With the implementation of ATLAS the MA RMV is able to track missed inspection stickers. 

The Registry of Motor Vehicles has sent notice to customers regarding expired safety/emissions inspection. These are not spam and the customer should follow the directions in the notice. 

The MA RMV is seeing that these are either antique vehicles or motorcycles that have active registrations and may be stored for the winter or it could be a snowbird that needs an Out-of-State Inspection because their MA inspection has expired before they come back to MA.

Here is a copy of the notice that clients are receiving:

Dear RMV Customer,

RMV records indicate your annual Massachusetts inspection sticker is expired and your vehicle needs to be inspected. Please do not ignore this email and act accordingly by referring to the expiration date on the existing Massachusetts sticker on your vehicle’s front windshield. The sticker expires on the last day of the month in the year indicated on the face of the sticker. Failure to act may result in law enforcement to issue a citation.

The annual Massachusetts Vehicle Check requires all vehicles registered in Massachusetts pass a yearly vehicle inspection – this inspection is essential to the safety of the Commonwealth’s environment and roadways.

There are over 1,800 licensed inspection stations in Massachusetts where customers can bring their vehicle in to safely update their inspection sticker. Visit the Inspection Station Locator to find a location near you.

Please check and confirm the status of your annual safety and emissions inspection sticker, and go to the Inspection Station Locator to plan a visit to your local station today!

Thank you in advance for your attention and commitment to the safety of the Commonwealth’s environment and roadways. If your vehicle has recently been inspected and has a valid, current sticker on your windshield, please disregard this email.

Sincerely,

The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles
