Do you have to get your car inspected in the county it is registered in?

I'm assuming you do. I just know 48 counties have OBD requirements and the others don't.

Meaning if it's registered in a county, regardless of where you get it inspected, they have to follow those rules?

I believe if a car is stored in a county outside of where you live, you can list that on the registration and the car would be subject to the taxes and emission standards in that county. Sound right?

Have to ask the DMV that one. I think it will require a mailing address........to register it in a particular county. As for getting inspected.......yes, you can get it inspected in any county, regardless of where it is registered. And we can also inspect vehicles from out of state, if the owner chooses to do so. (I know some military bases require current insp's).

It has to be inspected in the county you pay taxes on the vehicle in, which requires a PO box basically.

Emissions or just safety only is county based and the station must be able to do emission inspections to get it inspected at that particular station.

Refer to above post...We get cars in everyday from 4-5 different counties. You dont have to get your car inspected in the county that you pay taxes in or whatever you meant. It doesnt matter.

Does NOT have to be inspected in the county you are registered in. And I don't think there are any NC licensed inspection stations that aren't capable of doing both OBD2 and safety inspections. I am pretty sure you as a station, are required to purchase your own inspection machine.....and maintain it. Could be wrong there....

Believe it or not there are a few stations that still do saftey only. You can get your car inspected in any of the 100 counties. If your registered in an emmissions county, you will get emmissions testing no matter where u get it inspected.

If the car is "stored" in a different county, you are still required to get whatever your county requires. Only exception is if the car is say out of state for example while your in college or deployed, you can get a 12 month waiver but ONLY with the proper proof etc.

Im an inspector and to be totally honest, the DMV has really done their homework and have made getting around it VERY VERY difficult, if not impossible in most cases.

I agree with you there. There are a few counties still out there. There are even a few places out there that still do safety inspections by hand. As in they dont have a computer at all. There was a guy in my class last time we renewed that had a bike shop and did them by hand.

I would think underground could help you with this issue, but yeah, either register in 1 of 2? counties that don't have emissions, which means a mailing address or put a computer that can pass and the injectors that will allow that computer.

Technically they are supposed to do a visual inspection of the cats and whatnot even if you are in a safety only county. They have to be there...Maybe be empty but supposed to be there if equipped by the manufacturer. Maybe they dont get audited like we do.
