The RMV recently announced a grace period extension for specific motor vehicle inspection requirements, due to the nationwide system outage of motor vehicle inspection services by its vendor Applus Technologies. The requirements are outlined below and now include vehicle owners with expired March 2021 and April 2021 inspection stickers - have through May 31, 2021, to obtain inspections.  

  • Motor vehicles with expired inspection stickers from March 2021 (“3” sticker on windshield) and April 2021 (“4” sticker on windshield) are extended until May 31, 2021, to obtain an inspection.

  • Newly purchased vehicles registered on or after Tuesday, March 23, 2021, should be granted until April 30, 2021, to obtain an inspection. Newly purchased vehicles must typically be inspected within seven (7) days of registration. 

  • Customers who recently had an inspection rejection and are in the 60-day free retest window will be afforded one extra day for each day Applus’s system remains unavailable but should plan to facilitate their inspection as soon as possible once the system is restored and stations are online.
