You can easily obtain current vehicle registration status by contacting your local motor vehicle office.  Though most state DMV offices send out registration renewal notices, sometimes these notifications get lost in the mail, or don't find your mail box because you never got around to notifying the DMV of your new mailing address. Consequently, it's not until you get pulled over that you discover your car registration is expired. 

So for peace of mind purposes, it's always wise to know the current status of your car registration. Fortunately for you, every state DMV office allows you to obtain this information in person and by phone. A few even by Internet.
