State Inspection - Vehicle Safety Inspections

What are the inspection criteria for passenger cars and light duty trucks?

Safety inspections for passenger cars and light-duty trucks require that the following items be checked: suspension components, steering, braking systems, tires and wheels, lighting and electrical systems, glazing (glass), mirrors, windshield washer, defroster, wipers, fuel systems, the speedometer, the odometer, the exhaust systems, horns and warning devices, the body, and chassis. For most vehicles in the 42 county, Non-I/M region this safety inspection will also include a Visual Anti-Tampering Check. The Visual Anti-Tampering Check is an examination of the vehicle to see if the required emissions components have been tampered with or removed.


Note:Recently, some customers experienced a partially peeling safety inspection or emissions sticker on their vehicles. If a sticker is partially peeling, the sticker is still valid. There is no need for a customer to replace a safety inspection or emissions sticker that is partially peeling. However, if a customer chooses, they may ask their inspection station to re-affix or replace a partially peeling inspection sticker. An inspection station may charge for this service. Inspection stations that opt to charge for sticker replacements may charge no more than $4 to replace a safety inspection sticker and no more than $4.40 to replace an emissions inspection sticker. PennDOT is working with the product manufacturer to resolve the adhesive issue causing the partial peeling. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please be assured we are committed to correcting this quality issue as soon as possible.

Pennsylvania requires vehicle safety inspections to ensure that vehicles are maintained for safe operation. Safety Inspections can prevent vehicle failure on the highways and crashes that may result in injuries or death.

Vehicle safety inspections are performed at official PennDOT Inspection Stations (usually a repair garage or a service station with a repair shop). Inspection fees are posted at official inspection stations. These fees do not include repairs to correct vehicle defects.
