Day 137 of My Italian Learning Journal*
One of our vehicles is due for an annual state inspection and registration this month, and this afternoon after work I went home and took our other vehicle for the inspection. The current process is so much better than before. Now vehicles are inspected at state-approved stations. The vehicle owner can then use an online account to complete the registration part of the process. The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles then mails the new registration sticker to the vehicle owner, who then places the sticker on the interior side of the windshield. At one time the inspection sticker was placed on the interior side of the windshield and a separate registration sticker was placed on the vehicle's rear license plate -- where it was open to theft. (Now for a practice script in Italian -- I'm learning Italian on my own, so grammar corrections are welcome.)
