Hi folks, I'm coming up on my one year anniversary of having a North Carolina license and just received an "Owner's Certificate for Eligibility to Renew Registration." What is this?

I checked my license and it's good for eight years. Is this my vehicle registration? Is this the form they use to determine my personal property tax on the car?

TIA!

For your car but you will have to get in inspected first as it will be blocked until then.

You have to get the car inspected yearly? Not every two years?

Yep. Believe it has to be inspected not earlier than 90 days prior to renewal but definately before renewal plates will be issued.

That's correct. Seems to be to block slackers like me who tend to inspect late. Or maybe it's just to get them into sync after getting rid of the sticker.

I had to have mine inspected twice this year.

Beside inspection, your renewal can also be blocked by the County for non payment of property taxes on the car ...

Thanks everyone! So, let me get this straight - inspection first, then pay for the new registration?

Then they send new plates? Or just the stickers?

Inspection within 90 days of renewal date

Pay your fee on line to the DMV

New sticker and registration show up in the mail.

Sign registration, place in glove box

Affix new sticker to plate in correct location.

Repeat in 12 months.

Right, only a year sticker, and be sure to put it in the correct location (it seems a mystery to some ).

The act of registering will initiate a data transfer to the county it is registered in, and the property tax bill will arrive in about 2 months. Paying that will allow the cycle to start all over next year.
