I seen it quite a bit when we lived in Jacksonville and now I'm seeing it here in northern Colorado...……. late Registration Tags. People get a Registration Notice in the mail, for those already registered before, but I think many folks simply ignore the Notice or misplace it. A maintenance man, that use to work for the apartment complex we lived in, had tags that were three years old w/a Ohio license plate. I seen other vehicles there that had tags that were six months or more old. Now I'm seeing the same thing here! I do know that registering a vehicle, especially a new/newer one, in a new state is expensive, but still. We re-register our vehicle in Florida before we left, so we wouldn't have a problem (pulled over) driving here. After we got here, we registered the vehicle with Colorado within two weeks and got new plates. Actually, the Law states that we had 90 days to do that, but we wanted to get the Florida plate off and Colorado on. Registration fee for our vehicle was under $100, because it's a 2005 with 164K miles on it. We were shocked that the cost was so low. I do know that, for those that have more than one new/newer vehicle, the cost of re-registration can be very expensive, let alone the cost of registering more than one vehicle in a new state.
