Law Enforcement Bulletin 24-3 | New Inspection Sticker Design

sample inspection stickers

The State is continuing the modernization of AVIP, so we can continue to increase the efficiencies of this very important program, as well as protect the safety of our roads and the cleanliness of the air we breathe. 

We value the input of the inspection community, law enforcement, and the motoring public, and have taken steps to respond to your feedback around the inspection stickers issued for all light and heavy-duty vehicles.  DMV redesigned the inspection stickers based on feedback and will be rolling them out this quarter.  New features include:

  • A bar code with the sticker number, to eliminate the need to type in the sticker number, in response to inspection mechanic feedback;
  • Reduction in size in response to motorist feedback;
  • Increase in white space on the sticker in response to motorist feedback;
  • Ensure visibility of the expiration date in response to law enforcement feedback.

DMV will begin beta testing activity at a few stations across the state in April.  We expect to roll out the new sticker design to all stations in May/June, with everyone using the new sticker stock in July.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your area DMV Inspector or the Enforcement & Safety Office at (802) 828-2067 during normal business hours.
