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 have used the Schmid family for 25+ years. I would call Dianne and P.J. "business friends". Weather in the frame shop, body shop, or rust prevention, they have always been stellar in their trade. They are professional, courteous, … More attentive, and responsive,... which most shops struggle with today.
    I highly recommend anyone to call the Schmid family for any type of autobody, frame, and general maintenance/service. If it's something not in their expertise they will direct you to someone who is. You are in good hands when "Schmid happens."

    I’ve been bringing my vehicles to Rudy’s for more than 20 years. I’ve received incredible service! They go above and beyond. Most recently they worked with our insurance company to secure the highest rate of reimbursement, their work is … More impeccable and delivered with a smile. I only bring my vehicles to Rudy’s.

Communication about my repair after hitting a deer was appreciated, Diane dealt with … More insurance and helped navigate my claim with me. I won’t go anywhere else!!!!
