Handy Toyota Performs State Inspections at its St. Albans Service Center


Vermont requires all cars, trucks and SUVs to be inspected. The state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has provided many ways to comply with this detailed requirement at Handy Toyota in St. Albans. For safe rural driving or quietly running errands along the inner city streets of Burlington all the way to Essex Junction, it has never been easier to take care of what the DMV demands by contacting Handy Toyota's service staff to schedule a state inspection right here in St. Albans.

What is a Vermont State Vehicle Inspection?

Vermont expects residents' vehicles to be safe to operate. Ensuring your safety and that of other motorists is paramount. In order for this to happen, every aspect of your Toyota car, truck or SUV is subject to inspection. Be it tread depth or tire suspension, brake rotors and calipers, or engine efficiency, everything needs to be in compliance. Something as small as a leak or drip of oil will hamper your efforts toward passing inspection, as will body damage, minor rust, or other issues with quarter panels and under carriage. In order to ensure your vehicle passes a state inspection, Handy Toyota's service center will look things over, readying your vehicle for its inspection due date.

The Importance of Vehicle Emissions Systems

Vermont State Vehicle Inspection protocol places great emphasis on emissions control, which play a large role in keeping Burlington and surrounding suburbs free of caustic air. Essential to preserving the cleanliness of the air above and around is our responsibility.

In doing so, Vermont has mandated emissions control systems warranties on all vehicles in the state. Depending on the make, model and year of your vehicle, there's a warranty covering faulty emissions systems. Helping with this, vehicle manufacturers provide technicians the ability to diagnose and service emissions issues by development of On Board Diagnostic systems. Simply put, your local Handy Toyota technician may plug into a location under your dashboard and know exactly why your engine light sprang to life or if failing emissions tests.
