Smog Check and Inspection
All vehicles except those older than 35 years old must get a safety inspection before they're eligible for online DMV registration renewal.
If you live in one of the 48 counties requiring emissions testing, you will also need an emissions and smog check. Your renewal notice will tell you if you need to get a smog check, or you can look at the North Carolina DMV Web site to see if your area requires the test.
Diesel cars are exempt from the smog check.
Smog testing can be done at any service station or dealer that advertises they are state-certified. Once the vehicle passes, the station reports it electronically to the DMV. Then you can register car.
Fees for a smog check and safety inspection vary from $6.25 to $30, depending on where you live.
A safety inspection alone is $13.25.
