Inspection & Emissions

PA State Inspection

If you live in Pennsylvania and drive a car, you are familiar with those two stickers on the bottom left corner of the windshield. These stickers ensure your car is safe to drive for you, your passengers, other drivers, and the environment.

The State Department of Transportation (PennDOT) requires you to renew these stickers yearly. One sticker certifies the car is safe to drive on PA roads. The other sticker certifies the vehicle is not emitting toxic emissions to the environment. Vehicle emissions and safety inspections are required to be performed once a year. Safety inspections are performed on over 11 million Pennsylvania cars annually at hundreds of state inspection stations; Service Pro Auto LLC is an authorized inspection station for safety inspections and emissions inspections.

PA Emission Inspection

We start with the emission inspection because PennDOT requires service stations to perform this test first. If your vehicle fails the emission inspection, you cannot get a safety sticker renewed.

Pennsylvania’s vehicle emissions inspection program is part of Pennsylvania’s plan to clean the air and keep it clean in the future. The emission inspection tests your vehicle's engine and emissions efficiency or how much pollutants your car puts into the environment. Cars have many sophisticated parts, computers, and sensors that manage and control how much gas your engine uses and how much “junk” comes out of your tailpipe!
