What can i do with my Pa car I left in florida? It needs to be inspected and I don't want to drive it back to Pa with over 130000 mile on the od. The plate sticker will be up to date, but the inspection will be out of date. any ideas?

Hmm, transfer it to Florida?

I guess I'm looking for more to the story, you really just raised more questions. Why is it here? Are you not here with it? If you don't live here, why not sell it if you don't need it anymore?

Just get Florida plates and stuff. No car registrations here.

Sell the car with disclosing it needs an inspection (if it is allowed to sell a car without an inspection)

You mean "inspections" right?

I am not sure that you can register a car here without a Florida driver license, your insurance premium might sky rocket...Might be cheaper to just rent a car when down here...you don't have to drive it up north, tow it straight to the inspection place then sell it...and save the profit for car rentals when you come down here.

you do not need to have a current inspection on it in Florida. Inspections are location specific. for example, NY requires an inspection. If I drive it out of NY with an expired inspection sticker, i cannot get a ticket for it, as inspection standards vary from place to place, and the statutes covering them change. FL does not have inspections, therefore no FS on inspections. The FL cop cannot write you a ticket for something that is not an enforced law in FL. It would be like a 20 year old American getting a ticket for underaged drinking in a European country that has a drinking age of 18.

When I had NY plates but was in the military, I would never get my inspection updated- matter of fact, if your inspection is expired and you are planning on keeping it here, just peel the sticker off the windsheild. When your plate expires, just put a FL plate on it.

I agree with Craig. As long as the tag has a current date I wouldn't worry about it unless the inspection sticker is on the tag which might signal that the tag has expired if you don't know which is which. If the inspection sticker is on the window the PD isn't going to verify that date.
