Vehicle Registration/Inspection and Residency Qs
I just got my state inspection today, the usual 12.50 annual thing. it got me to thinking...next June I'll be moving to WA. now, I fully intend to keep my truck registered here in Tx(love the state...kickazz! and love the laws). So, I'll just keep those registration notices coming to my parents address here in Tx and send in my fee every Nov. like all the Novs before.
But what do I do about state inspections? Obviously, I cannot drive down to Tx just for an inspection sticker. What state's laws do I abide by then? Can I let my Tx state inspection sticker lapse without any consequences from other states, WA in this case? Or am I suppose to get a state inspection from WA? Will WA even inspect my truck if its registered in Tx?
I'm just thinking ahead on this stuff. Any info would be great. I'll probably be getting a new truck in the next couple of years, and I'd (like to/want) buy from Tx and register here too. Thing is, I might not be living in state. btw, all this moving junk is brought about by becoming a military dependent(hah, nice word), so, that might completely annul any rules....yes? no?
