Which should I get first

Published on June 13, 2012, by in FAQ.

Which should I get first, my vehicle registration or my inspection?

Your vehicle must pass inspection before its registration can be renewed. You may have your vehicle inspected up to 90 days prior to your annual vehicle registration due date, but it must be inspected no later than the last day of the month your vehicle registration expires or your registration will be blocked. Your vehicle registration will be automatically blocked the day after the due date. This means that you must get your vehicle inspected or face a potential $50 penalty.

Does my vehicle need an emission inspection

Published on June 13, 2012, by in FAQ.

If you own a 1996 and newer vehicle registered in one of the above counties, an annual OBD “emissions” inspection along with a safety/tamper inspection is required. In these counties, an annual emissions inspection is required for gasoline-powered-light-duty vehicles (less than 8,501 lbs. Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR)). The GVWR rating can be found on the driver’s side door. An annual safety inspection only is required if you own a vehicle 1995 and older, diesel powered, powered by alternative fuels without gasoline, or a heavy-duty vehicle (greater than 8501 lbs. gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR)). The safety inspection also includes a visual check for tampering of emissions components. Things to remember: A vehicle’s model year is the year your vehicle was built as designated by the vehicle manufacturer. Motorcycles, recreational vehicles (RVs) and motor homes do not require emissions inspections for registration.

What if my vehicle does not pass

Published on June 13, 2012, by in FAQ.

If a vehicle fails the safety inspection, it cannot be operated beyond the expiration date of the current sticker. However, the owner has 60 days to correct any safety defects and qualify for a re-inspection at no additional cost, provided the owner presents a receipt of the initial inspection.
