How Often Should You Get Your Vehicle Maintenance:

There’s no one-size-fits-all answer for how often your vehicle needs inspections.  However, check your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) website. Most states have clear information on inspection requirements, including frequency and what’s included.  

Generally, experts recommend consulting your owner’s manual for specific service intervals. Regardless, a regular inspection schedule (at least once or twice a year) is wise to catch potential problems early and keep your car running smoothly. 

Safety inspections vary greatly by state. Some states require annual inspections, while others have them biennially (every two years). A few states don’t require them at all!

Emissions inspections or emissions testing frequency depends on your state and vehicle similar to safety inspections . 

how often your car needs an inspection depends on several factors:

Vehicle Age: 

Newer cars might have built-in service reminders, while older ones might benefit from inspections during oil changes or if you notice anything unusual.

Manufacturer Recommendations: 

Service intervals can vary based on make, model, and driving conditions (normal vs. severe).

Driving Habits: 

Frequent short trips, extreme weather driving, or towing heavy loads can put more stress on your car, requiring more frequent inspections.

State Inspection

State inspections are crucial for two main reasons: safety and emissions control. They ensure your vehicle meets minimum safety standards for components like brakes and lights, reducing accident risks. Additionally, inspections help control emissions, ensuring your car’s environmental impact remains within acceptable limits.

DMV stands for Department of Motor Vehicles. It’s a government agency responsible for registering vehicles, issuing driver’s licenses, and administering vehicle-related laws, including state inspections.

At Integrity 1st Automotive, our inspection process is efficient and thorough. It begins with a 10-15 minute document review, followed by a 15-30 minute road test. Next, we conduct a 15-20 minute physical inspection, examining both the exterior and interior. Finally, our technicians spend 30-45 minutes inspecting the mechanical and electrical components under the hood. This comprehensive approach ensures that every aspect of your vehicle is carefully examined, providing you with confidence and peace of mind.

If your car fails a state inspection, you’ll receive a report outlining the specific issues that need to be addressed. You’ll then need to get those repairs done before a follow-up inspection to pass. The timeframe for repairs can vary depending on the severity of the problem.

Here are three common types you might encounter:

Pre-Purchase Inspections: Done by a mechanic before you buy a used car, checking its overall condition.

Safety Inspections: Required by some states, ensuring your vehicle meets minimum safety standards.

Emissions Inspections: Focuses on the exhaust system and emission control components to limit air pollution.

Alongside state inspections, we provide courtesy, pre-purchase, and pre-trip inspections. Whether you require any of these services, don’t hesitate to contact us today!
