Yes, in many counites.

NCDOT Division of Motor Vehicles: Emissions Fees

It is for emissions and basic safety issues. There was a thread recently from a woman that didn't understand what the inspection covered. She had to replace her brakes a few weeks after getting her car inspected, and she didn't understand why.

Default Vehicle inspection questions

How often are the safety and emissions inspections required? Also, it appears that the fees are separate - $9.10 for safety and VARIABLE for emissions - from $6.50 to $30. Or do they all just charge $30 since that's the maximum? (Wake County).

You have to have the inspection yearly. From my experience taking fleet vehicles at work to be inspected, they have always been $30.

If you're in an emissions county like Wake or Durham, fee will normally be $30. A few shops might do a discount, but who knows if they'll try to get it back by finding work that "needs" doing.

Inspection is annual. Penalties for being late can be assessed by DMV.

There are procedures to get an emissions waiver if problem just can't be corrected.

Brakes are not required to be pulled for inspection. They only are required to no display defects when tested.
