Yes, they expire at the end of the month. Conversely, your vehicle registration is set to expire at the beginning of the month listed. Just remember one is the beginning and the other is at the end. If you look at your registration, it should say something like (Expires: 02/01/2011). Then you will know that the inspection sticker has about 4 weeks left.
Last day of the month displayed
On the sticker,it says (Expires on month and year indicated.) The sticker expires at the end of the month during the year indicated.
its the last day of the month
As far as I know inspection stickers are good till the very last day, but I recommend you go in the begining or middle of the month to avoid lines from everyone else that's waited till last minute.
A NYS Inspection sticker expires on the last day of the month it was punched during the year indicated on the sticker. If the sticker says "2011" and the month "June" is punched, the vehicle needs to be re-inspected on or before June 30, 2011.
There is no grace period for registration in NYC. If the sticker is expired, you will be given a hefty fine if a traffic cop happens to notice (and they do!). You can be fined even if you paid for your registration renewal but have not yet received it in the mail. The sticker has to be valid and properly displayed. And make sure to remove the old sticker. They can actually give you a fine for that, too. If your registration is expired, or about to expire, go to the DMV in Manhattan right away. They will issue your renewal sticker that day. Inspection stickers, however, do not expire on a specific date. You have until the last day of the month indicated on your sticker to have your vehicle pass inspection. Hope this was helpful!
Pennsylvania automobile safety and emission inspections are due the last day of the month and year of the sticker that on the windshield. The stickers will state the month and year in numerals.
Month and year (or last digit of the year as it looks like in this case). All of the ones that I know of, list the month first. So this example would be expired the last day of April, 2010.
In most jurisdictions, yes. In WEST VIRGINIA your inspection sticker located in the bottom lefthand side of your windshield expires at the END of the month indicated. If your inspection sticker date is 9/12. you have until October 1st. to get your vehicle inspected.
It varies depending on the month in the year.
To clarify: I have an inspection sticker that expires next month from MA. I moved to Florida but want to keep my car registered in MA a little longer.
Look at your plate and on it will be a year/month stickers. The month is the one you need to get a new sticker. I don't know about other states but in CA a notice/bill is sent to the owner of the car about 6 weeks before it expires.
