Getting your vehicle inspected in North Carolina or Virginia is not only a legal obligation — it’s also vital to ensuring your automobile is running safely, correctly and at optimal performance.
At Colony Tire, our NC and VA mechanics offer a comprehensive selection of auto inspections at our various auto shop locations from Greenville, NC to Norfolk, VA:
Auto Insurance Inspections
With a recent rise in vehicle insurance fraud, more and more insurance companies are requiring an official inspection before a damage claim can be taken out under a car owner’s auto insurance policy.
During a car insurance inspection, Colony Tire will take visual documentation of your vehicle, noting any options or accessories. We’ll also record your VIN number, as well as your current odometer reading.
State Emissions Inspections
An emissions inspection from Colony Tire ensures your vehicle is not releasing any hazardous gases into the environment. If your car does not pass the inspection, our team would be happy to perform any repairs that need to be made.
Keep in mind that brand-new vehicles, vehicles driven less than 5,000 miles, and any specially-constructed vehicles or motorcycles are exempt from state emissions inspections.
State Safety Inspections
Don’t forget about your state safety inspection! This annual car inspection ensures your safety while driving — as well as the safety of others on the road.
Below is a checklist of the items that will be checked during your vehicle safety inspection:
- Tire tread
- Brakes components
- Lighting and electrical system
