NY State Inspection

Is it Time for Your NYS Inspection?

A New York state inspection is required annually for all registered vehicles and when there is a transfer of ownership. You won't be able to renew your registration for another year without passing the state inspection, so it's important to stay on top of your expiration date and practice regular maintenance. 

New York requires state safety inspections to be performed at a DMV-licensed inspection station.
