    As of December 1, 2018, vehicle emissions testing will no longer be required in 26 North Carolina counties. The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality has certified the removal of the counties from the state’s inspection and maintenance program after receiving final approval from the Environmental Protection Agency.

    The Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicles will implement the changes through licensed emissions inspection sites in the following counties: Brunswick, Burke, Caldwell, Carteret, Catawba, Chatham, Cleveland, Craven, Edgecombe, Granville, Harnett, Haywood, Henderson, Lenoir, Moore, Nash, Orange, Pitt, Robeson, Rutherford, Stanly, Stokes, Surry, Wayne, Wilkes and Wilson.

    Vehicle safety inspections are still required for registration renewal in all 100 counties.

    Now all those stations have an expensive computer that nobody needs. I bet they will have a hard time trying to sell them.

    I’m guessing low count of vehicle registrations therefore insignificant in the grand scheme. Shocked that the super nanny EPA approved this though!

    Cause the exhaust and air couldn't possibly travel to a neighboring county. ;)

    I feel like I made this same comment in a similar thread.

    They kept it for the high population counties so keep that money flow coming in.

    And half of Meck county cars are registered in SC, it seems, so they're exempt.

    Time to buy up those VW diesels that wouldn't pass inspection without the chip, and remove the chip.

    Diesels have never been subject to emissions inspection in NC. I love taking mine in and asking for a "Safety" inspection. Lights, horn, wipers, done.

    Is it the same $30?

    HonestlyI don’t care about the money so much as the time to do it. They should send me a checklist and I’ll self certify.

    For that the shops probably don’t even want the business.

    $13.20 is what the State gets, the shop gets to keep 50 cents. I always flip my guy a 20 since he's hassle-free and good people.
    But I love my mechanic. He comp's me on all kinds of stuff...fixes flats for free, OBD scans free, etc. and the shop is all gun guys.

    I think this is wrong.

    Emissions testing is something the .gov should actually be doing and protecting the environment. Even the staunchest of libertarians can't say that tailpipe pollution doesn't impact others, it's not like you're bottling your pollution and storing it somewhere, you're dumping it on everyone and it does impact them.

    Negative, unless they changed it recently, 35 years and older are exempt. 25-30 years old just gets you into the "classic" nada book at the tax office, bend over!

    per backwoodsshooter DC6972CE-9335-4359-89C2-3 "safety/tamper inspection"
    I ran a SN95 for a while with no cats or pump and my inspector didn't care as I gave him more profitable business than inspections. Bet there's more like him around.

    Yeah man I always take care of my mechanics as well, finding techs that are good, honest and fair are getting harder and harder to find.
