Why are inspection stickers getting a new look in New York?

  • / Updated:
  • Staff Report 

The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is making changes to the current system for issuing vehicle inspection certificates. Beginning in 2023, the DMV will be transitioning to a print-on-demand system for vehicle inspection certificates that will provide increased security for drivers and vehicles.

The new print-on-demand stickers will be printed directly at inspection stations and will include vehicle-specific information. The color of the stickers will continue to change based on the expiration year, as in the past. Some customers have already begun receiving the new stickers, and the transition to the new system is expected to be complete by the end of 2023.

During the transition period, customers may still see valid inspection stickers in the previous design. The previous stickers will be phased out, but may still be seen on vehicles until the end of 2024.
