“Dear PoPville,

On Saturday, I went to the DC DMV Inspection Station on Half Street to have my vehicle inspected. My car passed the inspection but it seems the inspector did not write down the correct VIN, which means my car’s inspection is not in the DMV’s system and I’m unable to renew my car’s (now expired) registration. Absent returning to the Inspection Station, does anyone have advice that could help remedy the error? I called the DMV, which directed me to call the Inspection Station, but no one picked up. I registered a request for help via the 311 website and emailed [email protected], but have not received anything other than an automated response.”
