How long does a typical car safety inspection take?

I need to get a car safety inspection to get a registration for the car I bought. How long does a typical car safety inspection take?

“In general, you can expect a car safety inspection to take one to two hours.
The length of your car safety inspection depends on where you live. Some states have more thorough car safety inspections, while some are less extensive. Some states don’t require them at all.
If you need an inspection, make sure to take your car to a reputable place to get the job done in accordance with state specifications. And don’t forget to get the right car insurance to make certain that your car stays tip-top, even after an accident.
