The inspection date and the registration date could be different (most often with a used car), so one might get hit up with an inspection fee at a different time of year than the registration fee. Often times people, forgetful creatures that we are, would renew one and not the other, etc.

That was our inspection sticker. NC finally removed its head from its anal cavity and synched up the vehicle inspection with the registration, and you can't get your renewal sticker without getting your car inspected. In the process they did away with that ginormous windshield sticker as it is no longer necessary. If your tag is renewed, your inspection is good
I'm so glad that here in MI, we got rid of the front plate about 30 years ago. What a waste of money for the state to have to stamp two plates for every car. In fact, about 10 years ago, Michigan went to a lifetime trailer plate. You pay one fee, and it's good for the life of the trailer; no renewal ever, and no new plate needs to be stamped. We also eliminated the emissions test as well. Emissions tests only benefit the small garages that do them. They get the money for the test, plus the extra $50 you give them to run the test on a known compliant vehicle if yours fails.....LOL.
