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.

    I just wanted to leave a review for Rudy Schmids Total Car Care as they we so excellent from start to finish. Brought my vehicle in to get the bumper replaced from an accident. They made the entire process so easy for me and handled everything … More from my rental car, to dealing with the Insurance adjuster and all the financial end of it. While there I thought I needed new brakes and rotors, and asked them to replace them while my car was there, but after they test drove it and inspected them, they told me I had a lot of life left to them and that I really did not need them at this time! Instead of just replacing them because I thought I needed them. Totally honest company...When I got my car back they had completely vacuumed and cleaned the inside and the outside! It looked awesome! I would never bring my car anywhere else...they do it all! Thank you so much Rudy Schmids!!

    Repaired my tail light and fixed scratched and dented areas on the side of the truck box. Excellent job of matching the paint color which isn't easy to do! Fantastic work and very professional.
