So when your time comes for a Penndot inspection, what are we actually checking for? According to the PA Department of Motor Vehicles, the following must be inspected and pass the safety inspection:

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 the 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.

As you can see, nearly every system in your vehicle must be inspected and pass a rigorous testing process to be deemed safe to travel on the roads of Danville and beyond. What happens if your vehicle can’t pass? The experts at George Automotive Services will be able to tell you exactly where the problems are, and we can work with you and your budget to get things fixed and that test passed with flying colors.

When it comes to making your vehicle roadworthy, George Automotive Services can do it all. Not only are we the area’s top automotive shop for fixing any physical problems, but we also provide the yearly inspections required under Pennsylvania law. These inspections might be a hassle, but they ensure that state roads are safe — and that your car is set for another year. 

Because PA law requires drivers to have their vehicles inspected annually, we also provide some of the fastest and most thorough inspections in the state. 

Why Should You Get Your Vehicle Inspected? 

So why do you need to get your vehicle inspected every year? For most people, the primary answer is simple: it’s the law. In Pennsylvania, drivers are required to show proof of inspection in order to hit the road. Without that all-important sticker on your license plate, you’ll be facing fines starting at $25, but those costs will quickly stack up. You may eventually need to appear in court and might not be able to register your car. 

Beyond that, you should get your annual inspection to make sure your car is safe for the road. Having experts ensure it’s roadworthy keeps you, your passengers, and other drivers safe. 

What Will We Look For During Your Inspection?

  • Windshield wipers and fluid
