Here in MN you need the engine # as well. Typically, no inspection is required.
Except for special circumstances, such as when I replaced my 2004 525 EXC frame for the better-handling 2005 frame. I still haven't had it inspected yet, so I don't have the new title, but I was still able to get this year's license tab.
The best way to have a hassle-free visit with the DMV around here is to drive to an office well out of the metro area.
