How long does it take?

The time to inspect your vehicle should be between 30 and 45 minutes to do it properly.

Pennsylvania State Law states that an inspection mechanic can only do 2 inspections per hour...

To properly do an Inspection, an Inspection Mechanic must take your vehicle on a test drive, put it on a lift, remove multiple tires, take multiple measurements, visually inspect various items, and complete the appropriate State paperwork.

We will spend about a half hour on your vehicle.

Please remember, the purpose of the Safety Inspection is to determine the safety of your vehicle as per State Guidelines.

Do I need an appointment?

The official answer is no.  As long as we do not have another customer waiting, we will do everything in our power to get your vehicle in for an inspection while you wait.  However, we recommend that you make an appointment or drop your vehicle off.

If you need to have your vehicle inspected on a Saturday, you will need an appointment.  We only have one inspection mechanic here on Saturdays, and it me, Sean the owner.  Saturdays can be hectic, and if you make an appointment, I will make sure you get top priority when you are here.

What if I have over sized tires or a lift?

State law requires that to pass inspection, your tread may not be outside of the fender of your vehicle.  Now, if you show up and have "the Stock tires" on the vehicle to pass the inspection, we have to pass the vehicle.  What you do after you get a sticker is on you.

Also, state law requires your bumper not be more than 30'' in height above the ground.  If when your vehicle shows up and it meets this requirement, it passes that test.

What is the Cost?

PASS or FAIL, CarCara charges $24.95 for a vehicle safety inspection.  If your vehicle passes, we charge another $7.00 for the Sticker.  (That is what they cost us from the state)

What if I have a problem with the Inspection Results

We are here to ensure the Safety of your vehicle when we do a Pennsylvania Safety Inspection.  We are not a lick and stick operation.  If your vehicle passes, it passes.  For example, state law requires that you have 2/32nds of tread on your tires or else they fail.  If you have 2/32nds of tread, they pass.  Though we would strongly recommend that you replace your tires and will inform you that they may not last until next year, we will still pass your tires.

In keeping with our transparent culture, we want you to have access to what we have access too.

 
If you want to know what exactly the State Law is for your vehicle inspection click on the link below.  As of July 2017, this is the current Pennsylvania Publication 45 that governs the Pa Safety Inspection Process.

Also, if you wish to contact the Pennsylvania department of Transportation Quality Assurance Officer Regional Supervisor, Mark Zmiejko, his phone number is (570) 459.3978.  He is who represents the state and whom we answer to initially.
