I think CA is it's own country when it comes to vehicle laws. Idk about your guy's inspections, I do know the you have to get your smog done every few years. Not sure what the interval is.

Just to add a little info to this, NC doesn't have stickers anymore. You hve to get your vehicle inspected before you register it. When you take it in to get inspected they run thier little emissions test and check all the safety stuff and it all hit Raleigh immediately via the computer system. So when you go to register it, the dmv sees is right then and there. The one cool thing the NC does, for us "out-of-staters", is they do "Courtesy Inspections" for other states. So if you have a vehicle registered in, for example, New Hampshire, NC will inspect your car and call it good. Once you get back into your state though, you'll have to get it re-inspected. Not sure if you have a certain amount of time to do it in though, or if it has to be done right away.

Your welcome!

FL doesn't have any inspection what so ever. So people down there let thier vehicles go to s&#*. And they drive like idiots, so no one cares, then the roads go to crap as well. So I agree with you on that.

I was born in TN and would be back in an instant...if there were beaches. Got to have both mountains and ocean to play in!

Ray-Ray & Grt Wh.,
Sounds like you two are made for each other. Never did care for people bashing my home.

I'm sure you can find something wrong with any state or place you live.

Exactly the same way here in Ky. They got rid of the VET testing years ago, never have had safety inspections. If they did, half the cars on the roads here would have to be crushed, I HATE seeing people not taking care of their cars, regardless of make/model.

The black'ed out tail lights or any black light on your car here in maryland is a no no period! I just dont see how some of you guys run around your state with those black out lights. Maybe you live in the boonies where you barely see peoples?

I think the smog check is every 5 or 6 years. But have never heard of having to get a visual inspection every year. Glad I live in CA, because if I had to get my car inspected every year that would suck.

Where we, "barely see peoples?" Sounds like you live in the boonies. I have blacked out tail lights and live in Charlotte, heard of it?

CA has a six year exemption on NEW cars getting smogged. After that, you have to get smogged every two years.

There is no safety inspection in CA. You CAN get pulled over for too dark of tail lights or too dark of tint or whatever but you won't fail smog over that.

What will fail smog is ANY visible modification to the engine. Doesn't matter what it is or what it does, ANYTHING will fail your car

Riddikulus5Gen: If you are buying your Camaro out of state, I don't know how this applies to you. Last I read (on this forum I think) Camaros are 50 state legal so you shouldn't have problems but you might want to double check.

I used to live in Utah and we had to do Safety/Smog check every year for older cars and every other year for newer ones. The safety check could fail you for tint/headlights/etc. but the smog was simple. Just check to see what is actually coming out of the tailpipe and call it a day. They don't care about mods in Utah (for the most part) as long as the car is still clean so it was easy. And for the really new cars, they just read the computer and if the computer give a green, then you're golden.

Anyone have good tips on a tint-friendly inspector around Charlotte? My guy suddenly won't do it now.

Inspection in RI is every two years and exactly how much work they do is dependant on how much work they wanna do and how much money they want out of you.
Emissions, tires and breaks are the norm and newer cars are less likely to have their wheels pulled off for the breaks to checked.
I just had my car inspected and if I didn't tell them it was being traded in when my camaro arrives the front tires wouldn't have passed.
Luckily my dad does business there so they threw the sticker on and away I went.
