    Default Putting the Next Year's Sticker On Your Tags

    My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: virginia
    Is it a felony to put the next years stickers on your tags without the tags being expired?

    Huh? You can put the stickers on as soon as you get them. I presume these are stickers (and the matching registration) that matches the plates you're sticking them to.

    Fraudulent tags is only a Class 1 Misdemeanor in Virginia at the worst anyhow.

    If you're charged with a crime, look up the statute here. If you're not charged with a crime, you can look for statutes that might apply to your scheme on that same website.

    Couple of things that fit the bill. Most likely 46.2-613 subdivision 2, displaying plates or decals for another vehicle. That's a class 2 misdemeanor.
    If you forge, alter, or counterfit the decal (or the plate), then it will hit 46.2-722 which is a class 1 misdemeanor.

    For Class 1 misdemeanors, confinement in jail for up to twelve months and a fine of up to $2,500, either or both.
    For Class 2 misdemeanors, confinement in jail for up to six months and a fine of up to $1,000, either or both.
