I recently put my truck back on the road that I had not driven
since the end of August last year.
My birthday is in August and that is the month to re-register and inspect the truck.
I had some repairs done and had the inspection done at a station in Nashua.
Since I was within 4 months of my birthday month, I assumed (and some people told me this) that it kicks up the expiration of the new sticker to
August of 2013.
Alas, the inspection person said that is not correct and that I have to re-inspect the truck in 4 months and pay another $40.
Any help on this?
Am I wrong or are they?
Seems a bit odd that you arent grandfathered to the next year if you are within a certain number of months.
Thanks in advance.

Early Inspection Information

RSA 261:62, II (d) was amended via Chapter 140, House Bill 448-Local and now allows a person to renew a vehicle registration during the 4 months prior to its expiration without having to verify the owner’s absence from the state.

Please remember that a current registration does not expire until the LAST day of the month and that persons may not be charged with a violation of failing to obey inspection requirements until a period of 10 days has lapsed from the date the inspection was due.

From: New Hampshire OBD & Safety Testing Program News

In short- you are right. They may be confused by a rule that says if you pass safety/fail OBD test- you get the month sticker but the clear sticker showing you failed OBD MUST be dated when the test was done.

I just did my registration and inspection a month early because I had to leave NH for the summer. My new inspection sticker is brown and says 5/2013. When I asked at the inspection station if they could inspect it early, they told me I had to renew the registration first and bring it to them, then they could. Don't know if you did that or not.
