Feb, 2009 inspection expired, my son will not be home until summer, can he get pulled in Florida even tho Fl. does not have state inspection? Should he just take sticker off window? If he drives home thru N.C. I know they will pull you for expired sticker. But of course he has Va. Lic. ???

I believe you can be pulled over in ANY state for an expired inspection.

Register it in FL or drive it back to VA (and hope he isn't stopped) - to get it inspected. He should check w/school and see if they have some kind of program for a deferral (such as...live in one location but have a car for an extended period of time in another). However: I don't think there is ANY deferral on expired, it probably needs to have some kind of current inspection.

Can you register it in FL if the owner's address is in VA?

You need to consult with a VA state insection station (or a VA state trooper) for an answer instead of here. Many years ago the law, under your situation, was that you could drive the vehicle from the state you were in to your home town in VA with an expired inspection sticker. As soon as you reached your home town you must have the vehicle inspected. I know this from personal experience.

Times have changed since I was attending college in Illinois with Virginia tags and inspection on my car, but not much to be concerned about.

Out-of-state cops cannot write a ticket for an expired inspection tag, and unless a VA state trooper is having a bad day he'll let the inspection slide as long as your son can provide a current school ID. While laws vary from state to state, the one in which I currently live (not VA) says that if you are out of state when your inspection expires, you have 30 days to get a new one. All you need to do is provide proof that you were away.

Well once I was pulled over for an expired sticker on my window. The trooper said to get it inspected, then take the receipt to the court and they will dismiss it.
