O'Brien Hyundai of Normal: What Are Vehicle Inspections?

What is a Vehicle Inspection?
In Illinois, a vehicle inspection involves emissions testing, which confirms whether or not the vehicle is a significant contributor to air pollution. All Illinoisans who drive a car that is four or more years old, and which was manufactured in or after 1996, are required by the state to have their automobile tested every two years. Also subject to testing are heavy-duty vehicles with a gross weight of 8,501 - 14,000 pounds and which were built no earlier than the 2007 model year.
During the test, which you can learn more about when you visit our Hyundai dealer at 600 Greenbriar Drive in Normal, IL, your car’s various systems will be checked. If all systems look good, your car will receive a “pass” certification which is valid for two years. On the flipside, owners of automobiles that fail an emissions test must make the necessary repairs and then submit the vehicle for retesting.
If you recently visited our nearby Hyundai dealer and purchased a new Hyundai SUV near Bloomington, IL, you have a few years to wait before an inspection is required.
