Vehicle Inspections

Registration

Welcome to the Vehicle Safety and Compliance Services Department of the Registry of Motor Vehicles. We're proud of the fact that Massachusetts has one of the longest continuously operating inspection programs in the United States.

Here you will find information about getting your motor vehicle or motorcycle inspected, requirements for inspections, answers to common questions about the inspection program, great links to other informative web sites.

One of the largest sources of current information about passenger vehicle, school bus and child safety can be found at the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) Web Page. We highly recommend that you visit this site!
