Inspection Stations

The State of Rhode Island requires safety and emissions checks on registered vehicles. Cars and light trucks with a gross vehicle weight of 8,500 lbs or less registered in Rhode Island require a biennial emissions and safety inspection. Vehicles registered as antiques are exempt.

  • Don't forget your registration! When taking your vehicle for inspection, you must present your vehicle's registration to the inspector or the inspection cannot be performed.
