Official NC State Inspection Station
Your next inspection can be performed 90 days before your registration expires. When your vehicle passes inspection, an electronic authorization report will be delivered to the state showing that the vehicle has passed allowing you to register your vehicle. If you try to renew your registration and you have not had your vehicle inspected, the DMV will not process your registration and inform you that an inspection is required to complete the process.
