If you fail your vehicle inspection twice in Massachusetts, you may face some consequences from the Registry of Motor Vehicles. According to state law, if your car fails to meet the requirements of the inspection program within 60 days of the initial inspection, your registration may be suspended. However, if you take your car to an Emissions Registered Repair Technician and they make the necessary repairs, your vehicle may qualify for a one-year emissions waiver. Here are some things to keep in mind if you find yourself in this situation: – Take your car to a reputable repair shop: If your car fails inspection, it’s important to take it to an experienced mechanic who can diagnose the issue and make the necessary repairs. Look for a shop that is certified by the state’s Emissions Repair Network to ensure that they are qualified to make emissions-related repairs. – Keep track of your deadlines: If your car fails its first inspection, you will have 60 days to get it fixed and re-tested. If it fails a second time within that 60-day period, your registration may be suspended. Make sure to keep track of your deadlines to avoid any penalties. – Look into the waiver program: If your car fails inspection twice and you’re not able to get it repaired, you may be able to qualify for a one-year emissions waiver. This would allow you to register your car even if it doesn’t meet the requirements of the inspection program. Talk to an Emissions Registered Repair Technician to see if your car qualifies for this program.
