PA Vehicle Emissions Inspection

State Car Inspections Near Me

Each year, Pennsylvania requires its car-owning citizens to have their vehicles inspected for safety and emissions purposes. In order for you to continue to drive legally on Pennsylvania roads, your vehicle must pass an emissions inspection or smog check. Emissions Inspections are performed on over 11 million Pennsylvania cars annually at hundreds of State Inspection Stations. If you're wondering where to go for your vehicle emissions inspection, look no further than the service center at Springfield Ford serving Broomall and Glenolden.

Our certified service technicians will test the emissions of your vehicle using the following methods:

  • Tailpipe Test
  • Gas Cap Test
  • Visual Anti-Tampering Check

What Happens if My Car Doesn't Pass Inspection?

If your vehicle fails to pass the inspection for any reason, our trained service technicians will be available to answer any questions you may have, explain the problem and how to correct it, and re-inspect your vehicle within 30 days. 

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation states that:

 Your re-inspection will be free, as long as you have it done within 30 days at the same place that conducted the initial inspection. If your car still doesn't pass the inspection, and you can show that you have spent at least $150 on emissions-related repairs, you may be eligible for a one-year waiver. 

In some cases, you may have to spend more if the repair is the only reasonable way to address the problem, such as replacing a catalytic converter. You must obtain an emissions sticker or a waiver from a certified inspection station and pass a safety inspection before a permanent safety inspection sticker can be applied to your vehicle."
