MA State Inspection Overview

During an commercial vehicle inspection, our professionals inspect different components on your truck visually and physically. Our state requires that the following be reviewed and/or tested:

  • Registration
  • Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
  • License plate decal
  • Parking brake
  • Service brake
  • Exhaust system
  • Emission smoke color
  • Steering and Suspension
  • Windshield and windows
  • Horn
  • Wipers
  • Tint
  • Lighting
  • Reflectors
  • Tires
  • Wheels
  • Bumpers
  • Fenders
  • Floor pans
  • Fuel tank
  • Frame/Unibody
  • Height alterations
  • Seat belts
  • Airbags
  • Fuel tank cap

For many commercial  and heavy-duty vehicles, an emissions inspection is also required each year. Our auto repair shop is able to perform both the safety and emissions inspections.

Passing and Failing

After your vehicle passes the DOT truck inspection, you'll receive a new inspection sticker along with a report detailing the results of your test. In the event that your vehicle fails inspection, you will not be able to continue legally driving it until repairs are made. If your vehicle fails due to its emissions, you are given 60 days after the test to have repairs performed and pass a re-inspection.

After repairing a problem, you can have your commercial truck re-inspected for free so long as the retest is performed at the original inspection station. Please also keep in mind that drivers are entitled to only one free re-test. If you do not fix your commercial vehicle's problems and are unable to pass inspection for the new year, your truck's registration will be suspended. If you have any questions or concerns about DOT inspections, we encourage you to reach out to our team.
