New Hampshire State Inspection

New Hampshire is one of the states that requires an annual vehicle inspection. While it may seem like a bit of a nuisance, it’s best to get the process done so you can have the peace of mind that comes with driving a safe vehicle. State inspections are a great way to get an overall picture of the state of your car and understand what must get done to maintain its function, wellness and safety on the road.

We’ll take your car and observe how it’s running, ensuring all the while that we make a note of anything that may need to get addressed down the road. Of course, if something is urgent, we’ll let you know right away. Not only is a state inspection an excellent time to get some peace of mind, but you can also obtain some knowledge from us about how your vehicle works and what you can do to boost the performance of your car.

Some of the most common parts observed during a state inspection include:

  • Steering (with emphasis on suspension)
  • Brakes
  • Lights and reflectors
  • Fuel system
  • Tires and wheels

And more!

If it’s part of your everyday driving, we’ll view it and ensure that it passes the guidelines enforced by the state that is best for your safety. Think of vehicle inspection as a vehicle’s physical exam: an overall glimpse at the functions, features, and health of its body. We’ll do what we need to gain an understanding of the car and explain what we find to you.

Remember that when you register a car, you have to get the vehicle inspected within ten days of vehicle registration in New Hampshire. If the ownership of the car changes, it needs to get examined then as well. Be sure to visit New Hampshire’s Division of Motor Vehicles on their website ( to understand the law. It also explains which parts get inspected during a session.
