Your Jiffy Lube®
Let’s be honest: no driver looks forward to a car inspection. But as a responsible driver, you appreciate how important these tests are. After all, the typical car is made up of eleven different systems, and each of those systems has many different parts. That’s a lot — too much!— for you to keep track of on your own. Periodic inspections by a qualified Jiffy Lube® technician can help keep you feeling confident behind the wheel … and help keep you in compliance with state and local regulations.
It depends on which type of test you’re talking about: emissions or safety.
Sometimes referred to as a smog check, emissions testing measures the level of pollutants present in the exhaust.
Be sure to check with your state’s environmental agency for a current list of required documents before you go.
Usually, when drivers ask, “how long does a car inspection take?”, they are asking about emissions testing. That’s because more states require emissions tests than safety tests. But many states have mandatory safety tests, so we will give these inspections a close look, too.
Before any work is done to bring your vehicle in compliance with either the emissions or safety regulations, you will receive a written estimate. Your questions are encouraged, and the Jiffy Lube technician will be ready with answers.
When you first asked, “How long does a car inspection take?” you may have felt … well … annoyed. We get it. You’re likely busy these days and aren’t looking for more things to add to your “to-do” list. But after reading about these tests, and the benefits they offer to both your safety and the environment, we hope you’ll feel better bringing your car up to regulation. You can count on Jiffy Lube to always use service/repair components that meet or exceed OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) specifications.
