WASHINGTON (Oct. 9, 2014) — The Automotive Service Association (ASA) has completed a 50-state review of vehicle safety inspection programs.
The association's review is posted it on its legislative website.
A longtime advocate of state vehicle safety inspection laws, the ASA is offering the report as a service to its members and the public. The report consists of an interactive map showing each state that has a vehicle safety inspection law and a link to the specific vehicle safety language in each of those states.
Currently, 12 states require annual vehicle safety inspections—Hawaii, Texas, Mississippi, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. Rhode Island, Delaware and Missouri require biennial inspections. Louisiana's inspection laws depend on location, and Utah's on model year. Maryland requires inspection only prior to sale.
