“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.

How can I get out of $5,000 negative equity on a car loan?
"I bought a car about a year ago at 36 months for 18.9% interest, as I'd just come out of bankruptcy. My intent was to build some credit, but I've realized I'm paying nearly 50% more toward interest than the principal. My credit score is still in the 500s and my car is worth only $3,500, but my loan balance is $8,500. Is there any way to get out of this negative equity?"
