I've keeping my motorhome outside Columbia, SC, while my wife helps care for her 98 year old mother.

By the end of June I need to bring it home to NC for its annual DMV inspection. Charlotte is the closest place to hit NC conveniently (I-77); preferably without going all the way into Charlotte.

Does anyone know a place that will do the required inspection in the general vicinity of Carowinds amusement park?

Thanks,

In Pennsylvania one has 30 days to get a vehicle state inspected after returning from an absence. I'll guess that NC has a similar provision.

Thanks for the quick replies. I should have been clearer about what I was asking.

I'd already looked at the DMV list.

What I was hoping was that one or more of the good people on here maybe had a specific recommendation for one they've used and knew to be easy to access and maneuver in and where the service was friendly to an RV'er.

Most of the ones I've cold-called from the DMV list don't know that it only needs a safety inspection and not the emissions test and think 'maybe' I could get it in there! Maybe? Hmmmmmm.


Thanks,

Gerry Egan

You could use the Google map satellite view to check out access to the facilities that will do the inspection. Here in upstate NY, I use a local truck service shop for the annual safety inspection because access is easy.

Mine is registered in MD and no emissions, no personal property tax, and no yearly inspection.

Inspection requirements in NC are determined by the counties.


What counties in North Carolina do not require emissions testing?

The testing would still be required in 22 counties: Alamance, Buncombe, Cabarrus, Cumberland, Davidson, Durham, Forsyth, Franklin, Gaston, Guilford, Iredell, Johnston, Lee, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, New Hanover, Onslow, Randolph, Rockingham, Rowan, Union and Wake.Jul 26, 2018

EPA vehicle emissions testing eliminated for 26 NC counties ...
