We are the only area state licensed private inspections facility to inspect all vehicles, including 1996 and earlier cars, trucks, and motorcycles.
New Jersey has one of the strictest auto inspection requirements in the U.S. Not only is it meant to protect us all from other drivers with bad brakes, bald tires, and so on; it is also an important part in our efforts to make the air cleaner and the state greener.
If you own a vehicle in New Jersey, it must be inspected every two years (following the first four, if you bought it new). Your windshield inspection sticker will tell you the month and year that yours is due. You can have us inspect your vehicle up to two months early, but don’t delay past your due date — it will be illegal to drive it, and you will likely end up with an expensive, and avoidable, ticket.
Avoid the often long, frustrating lines at State-run locations, and schedule a time that is convenient to you at J. LaRue Auto Care, a certified NJ State vehicle inspection station. The inspection can often even be done while you wait in our comfortable lobby area.
Note: Was your vehicle manufactured in 1996 or earlier? No other area service station in this area of Mercer County and Somerset County is certified to do your inspection!
J. LaRue Auto Care is the only service station in the area that took on the additional training and expense to have its mechanics certified by the State for these particular inspections. We did this because we believe in complete customer care, for all of our customers.
We can inspect cars, heavy and light trucks, vans, and motorcycles — virtually any vehicle that has an engine and must pass an inspection to move along our State highways.
The smart way to get your vehicle inspected by J. LaRue Auto Care:
- Check to ensure your vehicle will not automatically fail some of the basic inspection requirements (exterior lights, dashboard warning lights, tire wear, windshield & wipers)
- Collect and carry all required documents (valid driver license, valid vehicle registration card, valid State of New Jersey Insurance Identification Card)
- Call us to make an appointment that best suits your schedule
Unless you enjoy driving to a remote location to wait in long lines of idling vehicles with other frustrated drivers, we suggest you skip the DMV station and set up a hassle-free inspection with us today. Call 609-921-6911 to schedule your appointment.
