Vehicle Registration Stickers Eliminated in 2017, Metzgar says
HARRISBURG – Rep. Carl Walker Metzgar (R-Somerset/Bedford) reminds residents the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will no longer issue vehicle registration stickers starting Jan. 1, 2017.

“The elimination of the registration stickers, allowed for under Act 89 of 2013, is expected to save the state more than $3 million each year,” Metzgar said. “Registration cards will still be issued and are to be kept inside the registered vehicle.”

Despite the elimination of the sticker, motorists must still maintain current vehicle registration and present a registration card to law enforcement when asked. A valid registration card is also still required when having a safety and/or emissions inspection completed.

Also on Jan. 1, PennDOT will introduce a two-year registration for most vehicles, giving drivers two options when it comes to registering their vehicles. The new two-year registration is in addition to the current one-year registration.

“The option of registering a vehicle every two years eliminates the hassle of registering it every year,” Metzgar said. “The two-year registration and elimination of registration stickers will make the registering process easier for residents while saving the state money. Savings will be reinvested into road and bridge improvement projects, further improving the lives of Pennsylvanians.”
