When 2016 ends, vehicle registration stickers will become a thing of the past in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will no longer issue registration stickers beginning January 1, 2017. Instead, PennDOT officials say law enforcement officers will be able to use Automated License Plate Reader technology to identify expired vehicle registrations and insurance coverage. The last registration sticker will be issued on Dec. 30. Customers will still need to have their vehicles registered and inspected, but will not be required to display a registration sticker on their license plate after Dec. 31.
