Dyer County drivers requested to look at their tags

Dyer County Clerk Diane Moore suggests Dyer County residents take a quick look at their license plates after learning that many local residents with car tags expiring on Nov. 30, 2012 did not receive renewal notices from the State of Tennessee this year.
Dyer County residents with car tags that expire on Nov. 30 may not have received a renewal form in the mail from the State of Tennessee.

Dyer County Clerk Diane Moore said employees of her office noticed many of their customers commenting that they did not receive a renewal notice in the mail. When Moore investigated, she discovered that the state did not update its system one day in the previous year, causing a glitch in mail-outs.

"The state did not update the system on Nov. 30, 2011," said Moore. "That means that anyone who renewed their tags on that day did not receive a renewal notice this year. I am afraid that residents will get pulled over and not have a clue that their tags are expired because they didn't receive notification."

Moore suggests Dyer County drivers take a quick look at their tags and take care their tags promptly if they are expired.

"I hope that local law enforcement officers will take this into consideration if they stop someone in the near future," said Moore, who said her office has resubmitted the forms from Nov. 30, 2011 to help Nashville update its system.

The Dyer County Clerk's office is open from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and on the last Saturday of the month.

They tell you like Tansil Phillips told me a few years back when I got stop for expired tags. I had no idea as I had not gotten a notice. His reply was "Not my fault and it's still your responsibility to check on that, not the states." Sooooo...So much for consideration from the officers.
