I have a bit of a odd question. If the inspection stickers on a vehicle are expired are they still permitted to enter for a visit? My mechanic is waiting on parts, it's a 3 hr drive for me to SCI Huntingdon and probably my only opportunity for months to get up there. Is that going to be an issue? If so, are there any other forms of transportation to take there? (ie bus, taxi) thank you for your time & help
