How much is a Massachusetts state car inspection?
My car is due for an inspection in two months. I’m on a tight budget and I want to make sure I have enough set aside for when the time comes. How much is a car inspection in Massachusetts?
A car inspection costs $35 for most vehicles in Massachusetts, but it can cost more if you need a commercial inspection.
If you live in Massachusetts, you have to pass a vehicle inspection every year to keep your car legal. Below are some more things you need to know about vehicle inspections in Massachusetts:
- If you pass your inspection, you will receive an inspection sticker to place on your windshield. It expires on the final day of the month listed on the sticker.
- Vehicles with onboard diagnostic systems less than 15 years old must pass an annual emissions test.
- Massachusetts has at least 1,800 inspection locations, and you can find one close to you by using the Inspection Station Locator on the Massachusetts government website.
Hopefully, the above information helps you budget for the inspection and know what to expect. Even if your vehicle has an up-to-date inspection, remember that you still need car insurance to legally drive.
