The local TV news has mentioned that Department of Motor Vehicles is not sending out reminders to get new stickers for car license tags. It’s the public’s problem to get them when the old ones expire.

However, I have not heard mention that people can sign up to receive an email notice reminder to renew. There was a flyer to this effect at the facility on Mannheim Road when I went and got my new sticker. Here’s what it says:

To enroll: visit The needed PIN number and registration ID for online renewals is part of your current registration card.

Also, with no state budget, it’s extremely difficult, if not impossible, to get a human being to answer a phone for motor vehicle issues. I don’t know if there’s any phone number that works.
