The state of North Dakota does not require a regular safety inspection for passenger vehicles. The only inspections required within the state are safety inspections for commercial motor, and safety inspections for farm vehicles that are over 26,000 pounds. Upon receiving a passing inspection sticker, these two types of vehicles can be legally operated on North Dakota roadways for one year. For mechanics seeking an automotive technician job an excellent way to build a resume of valuable skills is to seek out an inspector’s license.

Edgar was amazing. Showed up right away and found the leak to my car immediately. I also requested the back breaks be changed out. Both things were done in a reasonable time and I didn’t need to get an Uber or beg for a loaner car. Plan on using this service and Edgar’s help again in the near future.
