Vehicle inspections help to regulate proper vehicle maintenance. They also contribute to safe driving conditions. A vehicle inspection may be required annually before a driver renews vehicle registration, or during the sale and transfer of a vehicle. As a vehicle inspection station, we adhere to a specific set of guidelines that outline our inspection standards. These guidelines go over important inspection items and describe the inspection methods we follow when determining whether a vehicle is fit for the road or in need of maintenance. For each of our vehicle inspectors, the main priority is to ensure that the vehicle is both well-maintained and equipped for highway use. All of our vehicle inspections are performed in complete compliance with the regulations set forth by governing parties, and we may provide drivers with a full checklist of approved items after the service is complete.



An inspection can identify potential vehicular problems early and save you time and money down the road as a result. We are equipped to handle a variety of vehicle inspections. During every inspection, our service staff uses a series of quality checkpoints to determine whether your vehicle should be deemed safe for highway operation.


If your vehicle has worn down steering or suspension parts, this can lead to excessive wear on your tires and overall poor alignment. The steering and suspension systems in your vehicle are complex, and problems with one of these systems may also negatively affect other systems of your vehicle. 

By replacing worn parts, you can restore your vehicle’s performance. This is why we recommend an inspection of your steering and suspension parts each time we perform an alignment. Jim's Auto Care today for a car suspension and steering inspection.
