On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) Emissions Inspection
North Carolina is fighting ozone-forming emissions from gasoline-operated cars and light duty trucks. Since 2002, licensed inspection stations have been required to use a more effective method for testing the air pollution controls on cars and trucks. It requires them to conduct inspections using the vehicle's on-board diagnostic (OBD) system, computerized equipment installed on all new vehicles since 1996.
The cost of a Safety/Emissions inspection is $30. Though they are still required to obtain a safety inspection, diesel-operated vehicles are exempt from the annual emissions inspection.
