DeLissio office offers 1-stop shop for vehicle registration renewals

PennDOT sticker elimination streamlines operations

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 12 – State Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila., announced today that her office is prepared to assist constituents of the 194th Legislative District with the renewal process for registration of their vehicles now that the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is no longer issuing stickers.

She said that the change, which went into effect Jan. 1, will result in a significant cost savings for taxpayers.

Drivers are still required to maintain current vehicle registration, and must present a registration card to law enforcement when asked. A valid registration card also is still required when having a safety and/or emissions inspection.

The elimination of the stickers allows motorists to renew a vehicle registration online and to print a valid registration card to carry with them. Drivers will eventually be able to upload the registration credential to their smart device.

“If you are without a computer or printer, my office can assist you in providing your new valid registration card by applying online on your behalf,” DeLissio said. “Simply bring in your current registration card and proof of insurance, and staff will print out for you your new valid, updated card. You will need to provide a credit card in order to complete the transaction. 

“As always, my office will continue to provide assistance with other PennDOT needs such as disability parking placards, disability plates, driver’s license applications, non-driver’s license applications and more.”

The elimination of the registration sticker was evaluated as part of a Penn State research study, which concluded that eliminating the registration sticker has no impact on vehicle registration compliance.
