Some states require regular safety inspections and/or emissions inspections on cars and trucks. At Progressive Automotive & Tire, we are well-equipped and trained to perform these inspections. Our technicians can also perform multi-point inspections on your vehicles as needed.
These are some of the inspection services we offer.

A state certified emissions repair facility is a privately owned motor vehicle repair facility, licensed to repair emission-related failures.

In some cases, an emissions test extension is granted. New residents are subject to the same requirements, unless your vehicle has undergone an emissions inspection in a qualified state within the last 12 months.

They were very helpful and I've always been satisfied with the service. I needed an emissions test quickly. And was able to get it in order to get registration for my vehicle.Linwood B.
I ran in for an emissions and was on a limited time crunch and tag issue. They did everything they could to get me in and out quickly and were so kind to my daughter and myself. Guy in charge that helped me was also very easy on the eyes thinking I should have left my number, Ha! Seriously though they were fantastic today!Heather McMurray
Honest hard working group! Thought I needed a brake job but just needed cleaning and adjustment on rear drum brakes. Easy to work with!
