I found a similar post, but that involved in other states, so thought I'd ask anyway.

I'm going to Georgia for school and I'd like the car to remain registered in Pennsylvania. My inspection is coming up this April and I was wondering do I have to drive up (800+ miles one way) and get it done in Pennsylvania or is there anyway I could take care of this in Georgia?

I've driven up in the past, but I'm hoping to graduate in late summer or early fall and planning to move back up to Pennsylvania and I really really don't want to do this drive in April and then have to do it again few months later when I graduate.

Please tell me there is a way without me having to drive back up again.

We had a similiar problem with our kids cars and them going to college out of state. What we did was just have them inspected in the summer. It doesn't change your registration, but you can do that on-line. It cuts off a month or two or three but makes it do-able when you are home for breaks. So you can either do it now or when you come home for Spring break. Now our kids cars have inspections that expire in July or August (probably July, but I'm not sure) but something they can do when they're home.

"Pennsylvania law allows vehicle owners who are outside the Commonwealth for more than 30 continuous days, to have their vehicle inspected within 10 days upon their return to Pennsylvania. It is recommended that you carry documentation (such as receipts) supporting your absence for the previous 30 days."
