With an expired license plate on the ST4s and wanting to soon ride it again, I called the DMV about the fact that I never received my tag renewal notice and was wondering why since I needed to renew my tag. I was told that it was because I didn't have the motorcycle inspection performed.
Apparently with the new system now in place, tag renewal notices for vehicles are sent out once the inspection has been performed. I was advised to get the motorcycle inspected which then would generate a tag renewal notice then following sucessful renewal a "Vehicle Personal Property Tax" bill. Lovely!! But I asked who do I get my motorcycle to the dealership for the inspection with an expired tag? The lady advised me to go to the DMV and get a 3 day "Temporary Tag" which I cannot locate on the NCDOT website but considering spending a day at the DMV in line for a 3 Day Tag - I decided it would be far easier just to ride the bike with expired tag to the dealership to get it inspected.
Would that be so wrong?!
