Where should I take a used car to get a safety inspection?

Where is the best place to take my car for a safety inspection? I just bought a used car and I need to take it in for a safety inspection.

“The best place to take your car to get a safety inspection is one that’s been certified by the state.
In most states, you’ll see some sort of sign or placard that shows that they’re certified by the state. From there, you can read reviews online to make sure that this is the best place to take your car.
Don’t go to places that don’t carry this certification, as this could be a scam or the state may not honor the safety inspection.
If you are unsure of where to find state-certified locations, check out your local government’s state or DMV website. A lot of local mechanics that perform basic car maintenance are also certified for state inspections.
While you’re looking for a reputable place for your car’s state inspection, it’s also a good idea to review your car insurance policy to make sure you’re getting the best deals. Try using the Jerry app to automate this process. Every six months, Jerry will review your car insurance policy and compare it to other companies to ensure you’re getting the best rate. If you’re not, Jerry will send the best deals to your phone in minutes. And the best part–Jerry does all of this for free.”
