AUSTIN, TX (AP) — Come next March, Texas drivers will no longer be required to have an inspection sticker on their windshield, but vehicles will still be required to get the once-over.

Department of Motor Vehicles Director Whitney Brewster told a Senate panel Monday that separate stickers will no longer be needed for the inspection and auto registration. A single sticker will be proof of both.

Inspections, which will include state vehicle safety and emissions tests, will be required within 90 days of when the registration expires.

Drivers will eventually have to show proof of a valid inspection to renew their vehicle registration.

Officials say Texas will save about $2 million with the change, primarily in oversight and sticker costs.
