The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has commenced the second phase of its new inspection sticker system rollout across state-licensed inspection stations, marking a key milestone in the transition to this innovative program.

More than 100,000 inspections have been conducted under the new system since its launch earlier this year. "We are very pleased with how the transition to this new inspection system has gone so far, and we look forward to that continuing,” said DMV Commissioner Mark J.F. Schroeder.

The new print-on-demand sticker system, which prints the vehicle identification number (VIN) and mileage directly onto the sticker, is set to reduce potential fraud and aid law enforcement with critical vehicle information. The sticker color will continue to change annually to indicate up-to-date vehicle inspections.

Gradual Transition through 2023

In this second phase, the new sticker system will be shipped to thousands of New York State-licensed inspection stations. Despite the transition expected to continue through the end of 2023, customers may still see valid inspection stickers of the previous design until late 2024.

The DMV is actively collaborating with law enforcement partners to spread awareness about the new stickers and to ensure their legal validity is recognized.

Implementing the new inspection sticker system will enhance road safety by providing more accurate information about vehicles, aiding in the prevention of fraudulent practices, and streamlining the inspection process.
