What is a Vehicle Inspection?

For both Massachusetts and New Hampshire, state laws require that every vehicle pass an annual emissions and safety inspection. In Massachusetts, the safety and emissions inspections are conducted simultaneously, checking to see if the crucial safety systems in your car, such as your brakes, adhere to state mandates. These inspections are done to ensure that your car isn't excessively contributing to air pollution and to keep everyone safe on the road. This process is also conducted in New Hampshire as a comprehensive test. In Massachusetts, cars made in 2002 or later with onboard diagnostic systems must pass the emissions test, while cars less than 20 years old need to pass this same test.

These tests are conducted at certified inspection locations, but at our New England car service center, we can make sure your car is ready to pass.
