I can't get a hold of anyone through email or phone to ask this question =(

Hoping someone else might have gone through this process....

My license plate renewal is due. If I don't renew it before the due date, can I just place the car out of commission for a period of time, and then go back and renew it later?

To complicate things, my air emissions test is due and I can't get it tested before the renewal due date. Down the road, can I get an emissions test done on a car with an expired plate in order to renew it?

Suck it up and go to the local DMV office.

Probably can get your smog test when you can.

If you drive with expired plates run the risk of getting a ticket. With a good driving record may get by with a warning. The longer it goes gets worse.

Check what price you will pay for the process. How much for smog test then plate renewal.

Yes. But be sure the car is parked in a garage or on private property to avoid expired plates citations.
