St Croix car inspection

I need to get my car inspection sticker renewed on St Croix. Can this only be done at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles office or are there other options?

Only at DMV.

Bring your registration, insurance card and driver's license. Go to the inspection bays first then follow directions to go to window -#? Inside.

There are "brokers" who manage to get vehicles inspected and registrations renewed without bringing the vehicle to BMV. They collect the required paperwork from you, go to BMV the next day, and that night you have a new registration and inspection sticker. But this year you will be required to turn in your exisiting plates for a new set. I don't know if that has had an affect on the broker business.

If you do go in person you may want to bring two copies of your insurance card. As they will keep one on file.

As Bombi said, go to the inspection line first. I've found 8:30-9:00 AM on Weds in the middle of the month to be a good time. Last time I was in and out in about 35 minutes.

Good luck!

Simple question: Are brokers really legal?

Followup question: How would one become a broker? Is there certification involved?

It has always been my understanding that what they do is legal and another poster recently said that it was. The questions has been raised countless times on this forum and the answer remains the same to the best of anyone's knowledge. I assume you'd have to contact DCLA for clarification.

The brokers provide many services and they are all licensed. I forgot what type of license, though, but that's easy enough to find on Licensing's website.

The way I look at it, if they are doing something illegal, they pay the penalty. I think I'll go down to BMV tomorrow to see what's required for inspection since I don't see a website for them.

I found it better to go in the late afternoon. They really rush so they can get out.

To shed light on the OP's question you are required to turn in both plates unless the car now has the new extortion plates.

I went last week and still have not gotten my invitation to the centennial party. ($10 fee on the plate ).

But I really do not see a way for the agents to get your paperwork done without actually having the plates. That would mean you are grounded until----

I expect this coming up year will be business as usual but for now it seems to an issue.

Good luck
