I just renewed my vehicle registration for 2 years (online), and the VA DMV sent my new registration, but didn't send me any new tags. My current tags are April 2011, and those will expire in just a few days. Am I missing something? Does VA mail the new tags separately from the registration card?

No new plates, but there should have been little date-stickers reading 2013 on them attached to the new registration that you would have then pasted over the existing 2011 stickers on the current plates. If you didn't get those, head on down to the DMV or at least to their website to find out what to do next.

This is correct. The stickers have always been stapled to the registration card on mine. Someone at the DMV made a mistake.

Boy, how are you going to prove that? My stickers always come stapled to the new registration, which is probably SOP. If you can show no staple holes in your registration, they might believe you.

I don't think it's too hard to get new ones.

Something happened last year on my daughter's tag and the sticker fell off. I contacted the DMV by phone, paid a dollar, and they sent me a replacement. No big deal.

Fortunately I didn't have to do any convincing. A very nice gal at the DMV call center had them reissued without any argument. It was nice not having to go to the DMV with "no staple holes" evidence. How unexpectedly pleasant to get a helpful DMV person!

Are you positve you called the DMV here in Virginia? You said they were pleasant and helpful? Somehow I'd believe you didn't get the stickers....but not that DMV rectified it 'just like that'. Actually....I've had some pleasant experiences with DMV as well...

Along the same vein, my husband wasn't paying attention when he put the stickers on last week. He put the sticker over the month (which they don't resend you) instead of the year. They do not peel off...

I switched the plates, having the one with the mistake on the front. Do you think they will resend me a month sticker? W/O having to go there?

Registrations that are renewed in person at a DMV branch office have the decals stapled to the registration card.

Registrations that are renewed at DMV's Richmond HQ via online or mail (the vast majority) have the decals stuck onto the registration card by a machine using adhesive.

In other words, staple holes mean nothing.
