State Inspection-Emission Repair-Beaver County

Car doesn’t run, but needs inspected?

Based in Aliquippa, Hineman’s is a AAA Towing and auto repair facility. Call us 724-375-4864 as we provide towing services in addition to diagnostic and auto repair services.

You should always plan on getting your car inspected 30-45 days in advance of the expiration date. This will allow you time to evaluate your options if Major repairs are required. Just bring your insurance and registration cards.

You are allowed to have your inspection done 90 days prior to the expiration date. Please note that the inspection date does not change when you do this. So if it expires in September and you have it down in July the new sticker will still be for September. The Inspection date is located on the lower driver’s side corner on the windshield. Inspections are due by the last day of the month in which the inspection is due.

State Inspection and Emissions Test are typically performed together at the same time, however they are two separate tests with separate criteria, and both have their own sticker.

Emissions Test: After a visual inspection and ensuring the gas cap is airtight, a computerized emissions tester is plugged into the vehicle which runs a full set of On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) tests. If everything is functioning as it should, the emissions tester will report no errors and the vehicle passes the Emissions Test. For errors and malfunctions, the tester will deliver an error code which is used to identify what repairs may be needed.
