If the check engine light is on there is an emission-related issue with your vehicle. Your state inspection will not pass and an oil change will not make the check engine light disappear. We will scan the On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) system and help you understand the cause of the problem. We do this free of charge so do not spend money to see if the light is a major problem. Many repairs are minor and not expensive.
Most inspections take less than 30 minutes. Avoid the rush and have your inspection performed during the middle of the month, from the 13th through the 26th.
Within the month of the inspection, the sticker expires, and you must get the vehicle re-inspected. There is a five-day grace period at the beginning of the following month. If you forget to have your car inspected and you passed the grace period, you’re at risk of getting pulled over and getting costly tickets and fines.
