Connecticut License PlatesFrom Jeff Boland: As of August 1, 2010, Connecticut no longer requires validation stickers of any kind. Windshield stickers are no longer issued, nor are plate stickers (including trailers and motorcycles). All stickers, expired or not, may be removed. There is no longer any visual proof of registration; only the registration certificate carried in the vehicle. Police check all plates for validity solely by means of computer in this cost cutting change.
From Jim Hough: Per revised DMV rules, pickups under 8500 GVW can be registered with passenger plates, instead of previously mandatory Combination plates.
