FYI For PA MH Owners

I went online to the PA DOT to renew my motor home registration as I have done ever since the state has offered online services. A new step has appeared in the motor home registration. It asks the following:

Certification of Inspection
Registrants of a motor carrier vehicle are required to self-certify that the vehicle has a currently valid safety inspection at the time of this renewal.
Failure to have a currently valid safety inspection could result in suspension of registration for three months.
I certify that this vehicle is a motor carrier vehicle and that it has a currently valid certificate of safety inspection.

Yes No
I discovered through phone calls to the DOT and state inspection office the website has classified any vehicle 17,000+lbs a motor carrier. No one at these offices seemed to know how or care to correct this. A lady at the DMV told me the website can't be corrected. I plan to follow up on that. Just be aware if you say your vehicle is not a motor carrier or if your inspection has expired you can not process your registration online. I am doing paper snail mail this time and hoping they correct it until next year.

You can still do the paper form they send which may be mailed or taken to the DMV office. It's just the online registration that has the motor carrier question. Hopefully they will fix it soon but until they do motorhome registration renewal can't be done online unless you want to lie about it. Motor carrier inspection must be done twice a year so I wouldn't want to take a chance of having the website reclassify me and then try to make me do inspections twice a year.
