On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) Emissions Inspection
North Carolina is fighting ozone-forming emissions from gasoline-operated cars and light duty trucks. Inspections are conducted using the vehicle’s on-board diagnostic (OBD) system, computerized equipment installed on all new vehicles since 1996. If you live in one of these counties list you are required to have an emissions inspection.
The following types of vehicles do not need an OBD emissions inspection:
- Model 1995 vehicles, or older
- Diesel-operated vehicles
- Vehicles licensed under the farmer rate
Effective April 1, 2015, vehicles within the three most recent model years with fewer than 70,000 miles might be exempt from an emissions inspection. Find out if your vehicle qualifies.
