He must have done it online. If he was at a DMV office they would have given him his new "year" decals (the only time they give you a "month" decal is with an emissions extension) and that would have been that.

VA plates always expire at the end of the month....other than this last minute online thing. I always renew online at least two weeks before the decals expire, so I'll have them before the deadline. Just seems easier that way!

Next time - renew early. The tow trucks can't look up your registration information as the police may be able to. I am not a fan of these guys and they lurk in my neighborhood ALL the time. When my husband forgot to renew his tags in a timely manner - we parked his vehicle in our driveway - if it was in a parking spot, it would have been towed (even though his registration had been renewed online).

Save yourself further aggravation and go get your car and chalk this situation up as a lesson learned.
