The State of Texas has done away with separate vehicle registration and inspection stickers in a move that will save the state an estimated $2 million in costs.

Texas vehicles will still need to be inspected and an inspection will be required to receive a registration sticker.

So could that system work in New York State? I don't see why not. The computers that run vehicle inspections are connected with NYS DMV headquarters in Albany. The state's computers would know if a vehicle has a valid inspection. Therefore the DMV would know if they should issue a vehicle's registration.

Sounds awfully simple to me. Then the DMV could pass along those cost savings to us...a boy can dream, can't he :)
