The Texas Registration and Inspection Stickers will now be on one sticker. You have to have your vehicle inspected before you can get a registration sticker. The Registration and Inspection will not be due during the same month.
During this transition period of combining the stickers into one month, some of you will not need a new inspection for awhile. For example, if your Inspection is due August 2015 and your Registration is due July 2015, you will get your vehicle renewed in July like normal and you will not need to get your vehicle inspected again until July of the next year when your Registration comes up for renewal again. So essentially, you get nearly a free year for the inspection.
