Reduce the expenses to the state for vehicle registrations by allowing registrations for more than one year. If an owner knows he will keep the vehicle, just allow them 2 or 3 or 5 year renewals at a couple dollars a year less, since the costs to the state would be reduced as well. No refunds for early sale or disposal of the vehicle needed.
