    I received my car on June 29th, and yesterday I got the registration in the mail via overnight delivery from Tesla. I noticed that the registration was only good until December 2018. I thought registrations were always good for 2 years, and I was curious if other people were receiving registrations only good for a few months. Do they always go to the end of the calendar year?

    You will need to clarify your state.

    In California you get a month sticker of the month you took delivery and your first renewal is one year from that date. You pay the full first year registration with your taxes at delivery.

    New York. They gave me a temp sticker when I took delivery that expired around August 10.

    Different states do registrations differently. Georgia used to have everyone's registration expire on the same date. Finally the idiots realized that this is the most inefficient way to do it, so they moved registrations to expire on the first line registration holder's birthday.
    Since Tesla doesn't issue the registration, whatever you got came from the county or state. Probably time to talk to them.

    Yeah, the part that surprised me is that the mailing with the registration came from Tesla, and not NYS...

    In Colorado the temporary registration is valid for 3 months. The permanent registration lasts 1 year.
