Keeping the Roads Safe For All Drivers
Though it can seem pesky to have a professional service performed to meet NC state regulations, it’s in the best interest of your own safety and the safety of other vehicles on the road to complete your required safety and emissions inspection. At Tire Max, our team performs safety, emissions, and window tint inspections all year round, and we know exactly what to look for to make sure your vehicle is in top-notch condition to operate around other cars. To schedule your inspection appointment, find your nearest location and give us a call today.
During a safety inspection, our team thoroughly checks all the components of your vehicle as required by state law including the headlights and accessory lights, turn signal indicator, brakes, steering system, tires, horn, rearview mirrors, windshield wipers, and exhaust system. Our goal is to send you back out onto the road with a passing inspection, which is why even if we come across a problem, we do our best to fix your vehicle so you can get back to your day.
To keep environmental disruption as minimal as possible, counties in the Piedmont Triad also require an emissions inspection, which can be performed at the same time as a safety inspection. During an emissions inspection, our team will investigate several parts of the vehicle including the gas tank and gas cap to make sure that all components are up to code. If we find something out of the ordinary, we will determine the best course of action to fix it so your car can continue to be legally driven.
Window Tint Inspection
To keep everyone on the road safe, any automobile with aftermarket window tinting must be checked to ensure it meets the safety requirements for NC state. Tinted windows cannot be darker than 32 percent. Additionally, tint on a windshield cannot extend more than 5 inches below the top of the vehicles windshield or below the AS1 line, whichever is longer.
