AUGUSTA — Motorcycles in Maine will soon have to display vehicle inspection stickers for all to see.

Come March, a new state law goes into effect requiring motorcycle owners to place their inspections stickers on the upper left corner of their license plates. Previously, inspection stickers didn’t have to be displayed.

The new rule will be phased in over the coming year.

To accommodate the change, all motorcycle registrations will be changed to a fixed March expiration. Starting in April, when a motorcycle is registered, the expiration date will be changed to the following March.

Registration fees will be prorated for the correct number of months.
