Chapel Hill Tire Car Inspections

It’s that time of year again – time for your NC state inspection!

A vehicle inspection isn’t just about making sure your car can stay on the road legally—it is also a great way to keep your car running safely and efficiently.

NC Annual Vehicle Safety Inspections

In the state of North Carolina, you need to renew your car registration annually. That means you need an inspection to make sure the core vehicle safety measures — horn, wipers, seat belts, and so on — are all functioning correctly. Read our full guide to what is checked during a safety inspection here.

So when should you get your vehicle inspection? At least 90 days before your registration expires.

Emissions Inspections in NC

Some NC vehicles also require an emissions inspection. This inspection ensures that your vehicle is not causing unnecessary environmental harm. However, unlike a safety inspection, not all vehicles require an emissions inspection. Find out if your vehicle qualifies in our complete guide to emissions inspections.

Trip Checks: Inspections For Your Next Road Trip

Aside from state inspections, it is a good idea to get your car inspected before you head out for a road trip. The friendly staff at Chapel Hill Tire can help you avoid issues before they become costly problems and help keep your car happy and healthy.
