I had the pleasure (yes, you read this correctly) of having the safety inspection done on my Volt, today. The place I go to is quick and easy. Here's the entire process I went through: Go to the inspection facility. Show insurance card Pay $7.00 Once you pass, they scrape off the old sticker and leave your registration sticker. Wait a few hours Go online and pay for your car's registration. The website sees you have insurance and you've passed the vehicle inspection. You pay the normal fees plus ~$7.50 for the other half of the inspection. You get your registration sticker in the mail 5-6 business days. I'm sure plenty of you know how this works, but I just wanted to share my experience. I look forward to having the single sticker on my windshield, too!
