New York State Safety Inspections

If you own and operate a motor vehicle in New York State, you are required to have a safety inspection every year.

Mike Barry Motors is a

  Licensed New York State Motor Vehicle Inspection station

So, what's involved in getting your vehicle 'inspected'?

Although we can't post the entire law here, briefly:

The New York State vehicle safety inspection program helps make sure every vehicle registered in the state meets the minimum standards for safe operation on public streets and highways. In addition, many vehicles are subject to an emissions inspection to help reduce air pollution. A properly maintained vehicle is safer, performs better, uses fuel more efficiently and saves the owner money.

  Steering, Front End, Suspension, Chassis,
Frame & Wheel Fasteners
  Windshield And Other Glass
  Windshield Wipers And Blades
  Fuel Leaks

Also, for many vehicles ...

The Emissions Inspection

Some vehicles are exempt from the emissions inspection program.
Your passenger car or light truck does not have to be inspected for emissions if it is...
  Less than two model years old
  26 model years old or older
  Registered with historical plates
  Electric-powered only
  Most vehicles with diesel engines are also exempt.

Basically, that is what is involved in performing a New York State Inspection. There are, of course, slightly different requirements for a motorcycle. If you have any questions ... ask 'Mike'. He knows!
