The state is experiencing a shortage of windshield registration stickers.
If you paid online recently for a new registration, it may be early next year before your sticker shows up in the mail.
Newsday reports roughly 400,000 New Yorkers will see a delay of up to several weeks.
The state blames the shortage on a supply chain disruption caused by the pandemic.
Vehicle owners who download a 10-day temporary registration form can now use it for up to 90 days while they wait for the sticker.
