Can I park my car on the street with an expired registration?
No, no, 1000 times no!
I’ve received many questions about what to do if a driver hasn’t received his new registration in the mail, and the old one expired. Here’s a great solution:
DMV Offers Online Temporary Vehicle Registrations
Although most registrations are renewed through the mail, at an office, or online in time to receive a new registration sticker before the old one expired, many times customers either forget about or wait too long before renewing their registrations.
In that case, their only option in the past has been to visit a DMV office to register the vehicle. This new service provides customers with a proof of registration that they can display while waiting for their new registration to arrive by mail. The temporary registration is available through the DMV Web site (www.dmv.ny.gov). It is available for most vehicle registration classes including boats, trailers and ATVs. There is no additional charge for the temporary document.After printing the temporary document, customers must display the temporary registration on the driver’s side of the vehicle’s dashboard in addition to the expiring registration sticker until their new sticker arrives. The temporary registration is valid for 10 days from the date the renewal transaction is completed. After the temporary registration expires, the registrants can only operate the vehicle if it displays a valid registration sticker. For vehicles that do not have windshields and dashboards such as motorcycles and trailers, the motorist will be instructed to carry the temp when operating the vehicle.”
