PA State Safety Inspection FAQs

Need to learn more about what you need for your car to pass a PA inspection? Here's a list of some of our customers' most common questions, with answers!

What's Covered in the PA State Safety Inspection?

The PA state safety inspection covers critical vehicle components, like brakes, windshield wipers, horns, suspension components, safety equipment, and more. State inspectors, whether they're located in Waynesboro, PA, Greencastle, PA, or anywhere else in-state, are also trained to check for other things, too - such as making sure registration and VIN match, emissions parts are in-tact, and more.

What Should I Bring to Get My Car Inspected?

Bring your vehicle registration card and proof of insurance with you, and of course sufficient funds for the inspection and any associated repairs.

How Often do you have to get your car inspected in PA?

The PA inspection must be conducted once annually for your vehicle.

Is There a Grace Period for Expired Inspection Stickers in PA?

No. Your PA State Inspection is valid through the last day of the month and year listed on the sticker.

Will My Car Pass Inspection if My Check Engine Light is On?

If your check engine light is on, your vehicle will fail the emissions component of the PA state inspection. To remedy this, your vehicle must be diagnosed and repaired to fix any issues prior to being issued a passing sticker through the next year.

To avoid a state inspection fee and any parts and labor fees associated with diagnosing or fixing your CEL, consider bringing your vehicle in for service prior to inspection time here at the Forrester Lincoln service center.
