Lubbock County Tax Assessor Collector Ronnie Keister Discusses Changes To Vehicle Inspection & Registration Stickers [AUDIO]
On the Friday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Lubbock County Tax Assessor Ronnie Keister spoke with Chad Hasty about some upcoming changes to Texas drivers' auto inspection stickers.
Beginning in March of 2015, Texas vehicles will no longer require two separate stickers for inspection and registration on their windshields. Only the registration sticker will be required to be placed on the windshield. Drivers will still be required to get a yearly inspection on their vehicles, but now the inspection must be completed 90 days prior to the date the registration expires.
Keister gave a brief overview of how the new sticker system would work. He explained that now, instead of receiving a sticker from inspection station, the station would put all of the car's information into a database, one that has not been built yet according to Keister, and the driver would pay part of the registration fee at the inspection station. Then, the driver would pay the remainder of the fee when they apply for registration.
Kesiter added that there are 3 different agencies working on implementing this plan and at the moment, there are not many details on the plan. However, he anticipates that the plan will cause a lot of confusion and "chaos," especially during the first year.
