BOSTON (CBS) – The Registry of Motor Vehicles said the car inspection system will be down through at least Friday. The RMV is giving anyone with an expired March sticker until the end of April to get a new one.

The inspection system has been down since March 31 because of a problem with its vendor Applus Technologies.

Vehicles newly purchased or registered on or after Tuesday, March 23, 2021 will be granted until April 30, 2021.
