There are many states without any requirements for inspections or emissions testing. The state of Vermont is different, and requires annual vehicle inspections as well as an emissions test too. This is good news to anyone looking for an automotive technician job in Vermont.

After all, you can use your training in two unique ways. If you study at an auto mechanic school and become certified in all areas of repair, you can then do mobile vehicle inspections for people hoping to buy or sell a used car or truck. However, if you take the steps to become a state car inspector certified in Vermont, you can also do those mandatory inspections as well.

Working as a state car inspector certified in Vermont

To work as an inspector in Vermont, you will need to be certified by the state's commissioner. This requires that you make a formal application. To apply, you must:

  • Be 18 or older
  • Complete the application form
  • Pass the exam based on the official inspection manual for each type of vehicle you intend to inspect

Fortunately, you can begin to master the different vehicles before becoming certified because the state laws indicate that: "Inspection Mechanics certified by their employer as competent to perform inspections and who were continuously employed by one or more designated inspection stations for a period of at least one year at any time prior to July 1, 1998 shall not be required to take the examination."

This level of hands-on training is important, but it is not the only way to learn how to inspect cars.

Becoming a certified mobile vehicle inspector in Vermont

You can also take advanced training through a vocational or college program that allows you to earn Master Mechanic status as well. For example, UTI Universal Technical Institute has a 51-week program in automotive technology training. This is a comprehensive approach to learning all aspects of foreign and domestic car care and maintenance, and would allow you to do full inspections for buyers or sellers of used cars too.

If you have already obtained some training through a formal college or technical school, you can advance your career by becoming ASE certified too. This applies towards your Master Mechanic certification. You can also reach this level through ASE certifications too. Both focus on:

  • Advanced Diagnostic Systems
  • Automotive Engines & Repair
  • Automotive Power Trains
  • Brakes
  • Climate Control
  • Drivability & Emissions Repair
  • Electronic Technology
  • Power & Performance
  • Professional Service Writing

This sort of training will allow you to earn an auto mechanic salary in an innovative way. You can get the inspection certification first, or you can pursue the degree and then take the different tests and state exam and become a mechanic prepared to provide a diversity of services.

Whether you want one of the mechanic jobs available in a dealership or garage, or you are curious about becoming an independent mechanic, these two paths are a wise way to enjoy the best options and opportunities.

Chevrolet Equinox - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Niles, Illinois
Rigo was great! He got there early, finished the job early, left everything clean. He changed my rear pads and rotors. The original quoted time was 90 minutes, he was done in about 60. He knows what he is doing and I am recommending him to all my friends and coworkers.

Rigo is a maverick hands down. Don’t take your car for work elsewhere. Especially great at Mercedes—this guy knows his profession! I will be using him for everything related to my car going forward.
