    How much does it cost in your state to get your car inspected?

    Hubs just got his inspected and an oil change. Cost was $120 total.

    We don't have inspections, per se.

    We have emissions checks. Limited by state law to no more than $25. Most places charge $20.

    To get my tag renewed on my truck, it costs $55. $20 for the emissions, $15 for the tag, and $20 for the ad valorem tax.

    I figured all states had inspection. We used to (long ago in the dark ages) have inspections twice a year. I always liked that. Now it's just once a year.

    Inspection is $28, emissions is $45 plus $2.40 for the MCI phone charge, sticker is $2, $36 for registration/sticker.

    It depends on the type of vehicle

    Passenger vehicles $29/year
    Commercial $69/year.

    If you fail inspection (which is very easy in this state) it will become MUCH more expensive.

    We also have to pay an annual excise tax on our vehicles. If your car is worth $5000.00 your excise tax is $125.00 annually or $25/$1,000 of value

    Arkansas used to have them, my dad did them, you could only charge $3.50. The stickers cost $2.50 each, so for a $1 my dad was expected to do a 30 minute inspection on a vehicle. For a long time he was the ONLY shop in town that did them. Cost him money to have someone do them as cars would just be lined up all day long. The last straw was when the state sent in an undercover car and fined him $100 for passing a windshield that he passed that they said didn't pass. He refused to do any more of them. About a year later Arkansas did away with inspections. Vehicle registration is $22-$27 dollars here depending on the gross weight of the vehicle.

    They don't have those inspections here in Illinois which is a big surprise. When the leeches in Springfield figure out they can rake in untold large sums of loot from vehicle inspections, then we will begin to have them. Between the shade tree mechanics here and the politicians it would be a win-win deal for everybody except the guy getting his car inspected.
