On the “fun meter,” most people would rank getting their New Jersey state inspection right up there with going to the DMV to have their driver’s license renewed. Both are chores drivers must take care of to stay legal but prefer to get out of the way as quickly as possible.
If your vehicle’s inspection deadline is looming and you fall into that category, do yourself a huge favor. Skip the state-run emissions inspection facilities and head to a private state inspection facility in NJ.The reasons are compelling. Private emissions test facilities:
You will receive a report to help determine what caused the problem and how much time you have to fix it. There are different requirements for emissions defects.
If your vehicle fails for emissions violations, you must have the repairs completed by a registered Emissions Repair Facility (ERF).
When you fail the inspection, you will get an Emissions Repair Form and a Vehicle Inspection Report that will help determine what caused the emissions problem. Be sure to bring your Vehicle Inspection Report and Emission Repair Form to the repair facility for the ERF to complete.
If your vehicle did not pass the enhanced emissions inspection, it is producing more pollutants than the standard for its model year – check if it is still under warranty and contact your manufacturer.
