Official NC State Inspection Station

Your next inspection can be performed 90 days before your registration expires. When your vehicle passes inspection, an electronic authorization report will be delivered to the state showing that the vehicle has passed allowing you to register your vehicle. If you try to renew your registration and you have not had your vehicle inspected, the DMV will not process your registration and inform you that an inspection is required to complete the process.

The NC Safety Inspection

Get your car and auto inspection at any of our locations. All safety items including lights, tires, and wiper blades are inspected in accordance with NC State regulations.

Our inspection checks all emission devices in accordance with NC State regulations. Vehicles that are 1996 or newer are required to use a more effective method for testing the air-pollution controls on vehicles. Diesel-operated vehicles only require a NC safety inspection.
