Historically, trucks with a registered weight of 5,001 pounds or greater were required to display a registration class sticker in their windshield.
As the last state in the country with this requirement, the Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association (PMTA) has urged repeal for all trucks weight class 2 and above to display the registration weight class sticker on the windshield.
PennDOT published its intent to eliminate registration weight class stickers in the Pennsylvania bulletin in May of 2020.
The final regulatory package was submitted to the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (IRRC) and approved on December 9, 2021.
The effective date for the removal of weight class stickers is January 29, 2022.
All weight class stickers in your agent inventory should be destroyed effective January 31, 2022.
The registration class stickers cost the Department an average of $25,000 annually to maintain the needed inventory, which can be saved because of this rulemaking. The elimination will result in administrative and cost savings to the Department and the regulated community.
Rescinding this chapter to eliminate the requirement to apply for arid affix registration class stickers will positively impact an estimated 1.6 million Commercial and non-commercial trucks, truck tractors or combinations, including businesses small and large, that are currently required to display a registration class sticker.
