Vehicle Inspection

Relating to vehicle safety inspection.

Vehicle Inspections

Inspection stations in Vermont are privately owned and operated by our business partners. Inspection stations and certified Inspection Mechanics are licensed by DMV to conduct inspections as prescribed in the Vermont Periodic Inspection Manual.

Automated Vehicle Inspection Program (AVIP)

  • AVIP offers instant access to required inspection procedures and rejection criteria.
  • Rejection criteria can be instantly shown to a motorist.
  • Inspection Mechanics are able to immediately view previously identified vehicle component problems and failed inspections, prompting technicians to ensure proper repairs have been made. 
  • Inspection Mechanics and inspection station staff have immediate electronic access to bulletins from the DMV, and other information such as inspection-related forms.

ON BOARD DIAGNOSTICS (OBD II)

On board diagnostic (OBD) systems were developed in the 1980s by vehicle manufacturers to help technicians diagnose and service the computerized engine management systems of modern vehicles. A new generation of these systems, OBD II, is present on 1996 and newer vehicles.
