Hello,

I recently leased a vehicle in NJ and it already had an inspection sticker given by the dealer. According to this:

https://dmv.ny.gov/inspection/inspection-requirements

I don't have to inspect my car for another year since it was inspected in NJ with less than a year after I registered it in NY state... Or so i thought.

I received a $100 parking ticket not too long ago in White Plains, NY for not having an inspection sticker.

Did I misread the inspection requirements according to DMV? Did I deserve that inspection sticker?

If not, can someone help me build an argument as to why I shouldn't have received that ticket?

If you have NY plates you must have an up to date NY inspection sticker.

Where was the vehicle registered previously and was there an inspection sticker on it valid?

If your vehicle was registered in another state which issues an inspection sticker, you do not need to have your vehicle inspected immediately. Your out-of-state inspection remains valid until it expires or for one year after the registration date, whichever comes first. When your out-of-state inspection expires, you must get a New York State vehicle inspection.
If the previous inspection was performed in a jurisdiction that does not issue an inspection sticker, you must have your vehicle inspected in New York.

That’s apparently not true based on the OP’s link which says:

So for the ticket to be valid the NJ sticker must have expired or the car was registered in NY for over a year without a NY inspection. NJ inspections are good for two years so maybe the sticker isn’t expired but it has been registered over a year in NY.

Vehicles need to be inspected once every two years in New Jersey, except for new vehicles, which need a five-year inspection.

Yeah I'm pretty sure I'm right. I can probably win but just sucks I'll have to waste a day in court fighting this.

The only way to beat the ticket is if the sticker is still valid and the vehicle registration in NYC is under 1 year.

You guys are referring to moving here with a vehicle you already own.

He bought a new one. It needs a NY inspection.

If the OP is a NY resident and went to NJ to lease a car and then registered it in NY (never having it registered to him in NJ) then he has ten days to get it inspected in NY. We donít know if the OP had it registered first in NJ but letís assume not.

OP, did you get a 10-day inspection extension sticker when you registered it in NY?

This is what's confusing. OP said they got the car in NJ then registered it in NY but the car already had an inspection sticker on it from NJ. When I went to register my car they gave me the 10 day inspection thing too but my car was from NY with a valid inspection sticker so it was ok to leave it as it and just renew the sticker when expired.

Its news to me but I always thought NY plates must have up to date NY inspection sticker, I could be wrong as my experience is only registering 1 car in my life.

Once you swap to NY plates, then you need a NY inspection. You have 10 days to do it. Out of state inspection means nothing here.

No I did not.

Also, it was a loaner vehicle that was previously registered by the dealership in the state of NJ. It has an NJ inspection sticker that hasn't expired and then I registered it in NY in April. Maybe I did read it wrong and *I had to have it registered in NJ under my name*.
