NEW YORK STATE VEHICLE INSPECTION REQUIREMENTS:

  • Motor vehicles are required, by law, to be in safe operating condition whenever they are driven on a public street or roadway in New York State.
  • Each vehicle registered in New York State must be inspected at least every 12 months. The inspection must be done before the expiration date of the current inspection sticker, and whenever the vehicle becomes registered in a different name.
  • When a vehicle inspection is requested, an inspection station must inspect any vehicle it is licensed to inspect or must provide, in writing, an appointment date that is within eight working days. If an appointment is made, the station may require a deposit that cannot exceed the inspection fee.
  • The inspection must be done in a NYS licensed inspection station displaying an official sign, and must be performed by a certified motor vehicle inspector.
  • If your vehicle fails the safety and/or emissions inspection, the inspection station must have your permission before beginning any repairs. New York State Vehicle Inspection_Syracuse
  • You are not required to have your vehicle repaired or re-inspected at the NYS inspection station that performed the initial inspection. Your vehicle may be taken to any registered repair shop, or you may make the required repairs yourself. Your vehicle must then pass a new inspection, at an inspection station of your choice, before an inspection sticker will be issued.
  • It is a misdemeanor for an inspector to knowingly issue, or a motorist to knowingly accept, an inspection sticker unless a full and proper inspection has been performed.

    Update (Nov '21): I've continued to use Rudy for a variety of services since my initial review (some steering work, undercoating, etc.) They continue to impress. They are very responsive, even to email, which is convenient. … More As always, the quality of their work remains excellent.
    Rudy does excellent work. They were honest about when they could start the project (about two weeks out). They didn’t just lie and say they can start immediately to get the vehicle in there. Once they started working, they responded to all my calls and emails promptly. They dealt with all of the insurance company things that I never saw. The vehicle was completed when they promised and appears to be in perfect condition. Highly recommend.

    I was driving in Syracuse (from Rochester) and hit a tire on the expressway that really messed up my car. I called Rudy Schmid's and despite having a jam packed day, they made time for me. They were so kind and helpful, I dont know … More what I would have done without them. I am extremely grateful. Give them your business, you wont be disappointed.
