How long does a car inspection take in New York?
I live in New York and my car is due for an inspection. I work a lot and I'm worried I won't have time to get it inspected. How long will it take?
Trying to fit a car inspection into a busy schedule can be difficult! Many auto repair shops or inspection sites have limited hours, making it hard to schedule an appointment if you work a lot.
That said, a car inspection typically only takes 30 minutes to an hour. Depending on your schedule, you could try to make an appointment for an exact day and time. Doing so may alleviate some of the stress of trying to get your vehicle inspected.
Another option would be visiting a site that offers walk-in appointments. If you unexpectedly have free time, drop in for an appointment. Some places that often offer walk-in services are Delta Sonic or Valvoline.
Keep in mind that your inspection is due by the last day of the month on your sticker. If your inspection is overdue and you get pulled over, you could get a ticket.
