I really need to know. i need... show more We want to pay the registration, but there is no way that we would receive the stickers before the end of April. The car sticker says April, 2010.

I really need to know. i need the car may 1, and I want to pay the registration online because I have no time what so ever to get to the DMV personally. Thanks, Michael D.
