Effective 12/31/16 Penndot will No Longer Issue Vehicle Registration Stickers
Act 89 was signed into law in November of 2013 and provided for the elimination of vehicle registration stickers. When registration stickers are eliminated on December 31, 2016 Penndot customers can enjoy the convenience of paying their registration fee online from home or a mobile device, printing and signing a permanent registration credential and going about their business, without waiting for delivery by mail.
Current registration will still be required. Act 89 merely eliminated the need to place a registration sticker on your license plate which will be effective December 31, 2016.. This change will save the Commonwealth in excess of $1 million dollars per year.
Law Enforcement Agencies have real time electronic access to Penndot's database to verify a vehicles' registration. You are sll required to maintain a current and valid registration card and present it to law enforcement when asked. also, the valid and current registration card must still be presented at safety inspections. North Coventry Police department, like many police agencies in the Commonwealth, utilize Automatic License plate Readers to automatically scan license plates to determine current status.
