AUSTIN, Texas -- Come next March, Texas drivers will no longer be required to have an inspection sticker on their windshield.

But vehicles will still be required to get the once-over.

Department of Motor Vehicles Director Whitney Brewster told a Senate panel Monday that separate stickers will no longer be needed for the inspection and auto registration. A single sticker will be proof of both.

The Houston Chronicle reports an owner must complete the inspection - which includes state vehicle safety and emissions tests - within 90 days of when the registration expires.

Drivers will eventually have to show proof of a valid inspection to renew their vehicle registration.

Officials say Texas will save about $2 million with the change, primarily in oversight and sticker costs.
