The State of North Carolina requires most vehicles to pass annual inspections. The Department of Motor Vehicles will not renew your registration until your vehicle has passed. You can have your vehicle inspected up to 90 days before the tags expire. Here are a few common problems that can result in a failed state inspection.

• Excessive brake wear

• Insufficient tire tread depth

• Burned out headlights/taillights

• Cut wiper blades

• Check engine light

Learn more about each of the above issues, and be sure to check with the state here. Once your car has passed its inspection, renew your registration here.
