New York extends vehicle inspection, registration expiration dates again

CLOSE

ALBANY – New York has again extended the expiration date of annual vehicle inspections, registrations and driver’s licenses that otherwise would have lapsed during the coronavirus pandemic, validating them for at least another month.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order early Monday making the change, allowing the documents to remain valid until Nov. 3. The order, which had been set to expire Monday, applies only to those that lapsed since March.

But the order made clear expired registrations and non-driver identification cards — which can be renewed entirely online  — will not be extended again beyond Nov. 3.

It made no such declaration about vehicle inspections and driver’s licenses, allowing the possibility that portion of the order could be extended again.

Cuomo first paused the expiration dates in March at a time when the state was hit harder by COVID-19 than any other state in the nation. He has extended his order several times since.

New York inspection shops had performed 739,000 fewer inspections from March through August 2020 than they had the same period the prior year, according to the state DMV.

Inspection stations have been asking the state for clarity regarding the inspection order, noting they will need advance notice when it expires to ensure a flood of drivers needing their cars inspected don’t overwhelm the shops.

The DMV, meanwhile, has been urging drivers to get their vehicles inspected even while Cuomo’s order remains in place.

In recent weeks, the DMV’s expiration notices have stopped notifying drivers of Cuomo’s extension, instead simply notifying drivers of their pending expiration date. 

“The required annual New York State inspection is due by 10/31/2020 for the registration listed below,” a recent notice reads.

The state allows drivers to renew their license online without having to visit a DMV office, though a driver has to go to a certified eye doctor to receive an eye exam.

Vehicle registrations can be renewed entirely online. Inspections must happen at a certified inspection shop.

    5 Star Dedicated Customer Service Team

    December 3, 2018

    4.7 (1235 reviews)

    Rick Theibaud, my Chevrolet service representative at Van Chevrolet Buick GMC has provided me with exemplary 5-STAR customer service in handling repairs of my Chevrolet 2018 Equinox AWD. From my first phone call to Rick Theibaud setting up a service appointment for a warranty covered issue, and with every interaction since, Rick has provided top-notch service. Knowledgeable, polite, patient with all the questions I asked, and responsive with follow-up calls and information, he always kept me informed so I didnt have to call him to find out what was going on.Rick set me up with a comparable loaner car to use as the part needed came from out of state. When the repair work was completed, Rick had my car washed, vacuum, and because it had to be driven some distance to ensure the repair was spot on, refueled and ready to go when I arrived.
    Since, Ive had my oil changed, tires rotated, and engine checked with Rick. And again, I received the best service a car dealership has ever delivered. As a female executive who has bought and leased her own cars for over 25 years, good service has not always been the case.
    Thank you Rick Theibaud and to the rest of the team – Steve, Blake, and Noah for all your dedication in making this a great car repair experience. As long as I live in Scottsdale, Arizona and own this car, you are my go to team! I highly recommend Van Chevrolet Buick GMC and especially the service team of Rick Theibaud, Steve, Blake, and Noah! Thank you!

    Arizona Vehicle Registration Renewal & Info

    COVID-19 Effects on Licensing Services

    In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, state DMVs nationwide have closed office locations, extended license and registration expiration dates, and/or limited the transactions they are processing. Residents are urged to use the state’s online services. Follow the MVD’s recent updates for the latest information.

    Introduction

    Arizona requires all residents to register their vehicles with Arizona’s Motor Vehicle Division (MVD). Residents are also required to maintain a valid registration on vehicles by renewing before the end of their registration cycles.

    New to Arizona?

    You need a first-time registration when you purchase a car or move to a new state. Learn everything you need to know about first-time registration on our Car Registration page.

    Arizona Registration Renewal Cycles

    Vehicles registered in AZ fall under one of three possible renewal cycles:

    • 1 year renewal
    • 2 years renewal
    • 5 years renewal

    NOTE: Vehicles that only receive a “basic” emissions test, along with out-of-state exemptions, are NOT eligible for either renewal of 2 years or 5 years.

    Five-Year Renewal

    The following types of vehicles are eligible for a renewal of 5 years:

    • New vehicles that have not been registered in AZ or any other state before.
    • Vehicles registered outside of the Tucson and Phoenix metro areas.
    • Vehicles manufactured in 1966 or earlier.
    • Motorcycles 
    • Hydrogen, solar, and electric-powered vehicles.

    AZ Registration Renewal Notice

    The MVD will send you a renewal notice several weeks before your registration’s expiration date.

    Your notice will include:

    • Your renewal fee.
    • Taxes due.
    • “Renew by” date (either the 15th of the month or last day of the month during the year in which you must renew).
    • Emissions testing requirement.
    • Outstanding issues (unpaid tickets or fines) that may prevent you from renewing.

    Didn’t Receive a Renewal Notice?

    You do not need an MVD renewal notice to renew your AZ registration. You are, however, responsible for renewing your registration on time even if you do not receive a renewal reminder.

    If you didn’t receive a notice, contact your local MVD office or call the MVD help desk at (800) 251-5866 for help on how to proceed with renewing your registration.

    Renewing Your Arizona Car Registration

    Arizona provides four options for renewing your registration: online, by phone, by mail, and in person.

    Vehicle strikes multiple protesters in Washington, 2 people sent to hospital

    The unidentified 27-year-old suspect is in custody and faces multiple charges.

    An overnight protest on a closed Washington state freeway ended with two women in the hospital after a motorist barreled into the crowd, according to Washington State Patrol.

    For weeks, law enforcement authorities have warned pedestrian protesters not to use the highways as the setting for protests.

    “The freeway is simply not a safe place…We feared something like this would happen,” said Captain Ron Mead, commander of Washington State Patrol field operations for District 2, at a press conference Saturday morning.

    A 27-year-old man from Seattle is accused of driving his car onto the closed I-5, going around the vehicles that were supporting the protesters, and striking the pedestrians standing in the shoulder of the road, said Mead.

    “We don’t know exactly where the vehicle came on, but we suspect he came on, on the wrong way of a ramp and entered the southbound lane of I-5, he did not come through on one of the closure lanes we had posted,” said Mead.

    Interstate 5 between SR 520 and I-90 was closed multiple times in the last 24 hours due to protests.

    A 32-year-old woman from Bellingham and a 24-year-old woman from Seattle were hit and taken to a nearby hospital.

    The younger woman is in critical condition after suffering life-threatening injuries while the other victim is in stable condition.

    The unidentified driver stopped the all-white sedan and was taken into custody for questioning. Mead said the driver passed a sobriety test and there’s no indication that the car was stolen.

    “At the very least, he is looking at vehicle assault charges, felony hit-and-run, but those could be upgraded depending on the progress of the investigation,” said Mead, adding, “We don’t know if it’s a targeted attack, but that remains the focus of our investigation.”

    Mead said police have made efforts to keep
