I don't know what the chances are of anyone having the answer to this here, but my question is this - if you fail the inspection on a safety issue, would another station find record of this?

I ask because my girlfriend's car failed on something terribly minor - she went somewhere where they were doing the inspections for almost nothing, and I was worried that they'd go over it with a fine-tooth comb, trying to drum up repair work. Money's very tight right now for her, and I was hoping I could try it at a station that's a bit more lenient...

Any help?

NH inspections are all linked through a central computer system. This prevents people from doing exactly what you are trying to do. What was the 'minor' thing that caused the failure?

Back when we had to have cars inspected twice per year that was possible but computers have pretty much put a stop to the trick. Whatever the problem is just get it fixed even if money is tight. It might save you from an accident.

As stated, once you get the problem fixed you have to go back to the same station to get reinspected.

They don't really have much of a choice, if they don't get it fixed they're not going to get an inspection sticker.

Mass has nothing to do with the NH inspection rules.

IIRC New Hampshire pioneered vehicle inspections early last century. Too many people were driving without brakes and with bald tires and were hitting other cars and killing people. It had nothing to do with mass or nanny state but a lot to do with enforcing personal responsibility to prevent accidents.

The requirement was changed a couple of years ago from twice per year to once a year as cars became more reliable and tires lasted longer.

Not only that but if an inspection gets passed just to get it by that should not have been passed legally, that garage could lose it's inspection licensing and be fined. I don't think any garage wants to risk losing their inspection ability for such a "minor" thing whatever it was.

Have your GF get the thing fixed. It is cheaper and safer that way. Pay for the repair yourself if necessary. That is what being a friend entails.
