Inspection Extension: The Break You Shouldn’t Take

The North Carolina General Assembly has granted a six month extension of “any credential that expires on or after March 1, 2020, and before August 1, 2020.” That means you have six more months before your car inspection and registration are due – a break for those who were sheltering in place and working from home.

We recommend, however, that you not take this break.

Safety Doesn’t Need a Break. The inspection you are required to get each year is called a ‘safety’ inspection because it truly does help to keep you, your vehicle, and other vehicles safe. When we do an inspection, we make sure that your car’s headlights, signals, brakes, and tires are working correctly. If you live in Alamance County, we also do an emissions inspection that helps to keep the air clean. Safety and clean air don’t need a break.

Double Break. You may be getting an extension, but starting in August, everyone is going to be back on the schedule. That means we’ll be double booked for inspections, and double booked fixing any issues we come across. We recommend that you make an appointment now and beat the rush.

If you’re still sheltering at home, we understand! We offer drop off/pick up no-contact service so that you can stay in. If you’re an essential worker with long hours and a busy schedule, we have a drop off service, too. Whatever your situation, we’ll work with you!

To keep your vehicle safe and to avoid the crowds, we’ll give you a break! Call us today – or just drop by to get your vehicle inspected now.
