Automotive Technology of West Islip is registered and licensed by the state of New York to provide annual safety inspection services and emissions testing to keep your vehicle in compliance with state laws. Each year, your car must be inspected to make sure that it can be operated safely and that all components are in good working order. This ensures the safety of you, your passengers, other drivers, and even pedestrians when your vehicle is in operation.
If you’ve just purchased a new or used vehicle, this inspection must be completed in order to register the car and avoid fines or tickets, so if you purchase vehicles more frequently, you might require testing at different intervals. These tests must be conducted by repair shops that are licensed by the state in order to be valid, and our team of technicians is proud to offer this service here in West Islip, New York. To complete the test, our technicians will review various components to ensure they are performing properly and safely. This includes a full walk-around to test seat belts, brakes, steering components, suspension, tires, all exterior lights and signals, windows and windshields, wiper blades, horns, mirrors, and fuel leaks. Any of these items that are not working will need to be replaced or repaired in order to pass the test.
Simple repairs may include changing light bulbs that have burned out, or replacing worn brake pads, but there are more invasive repairs that may be required. Tires with poor tread will require replacement. Warped brake rotors may need to be machined or replaced. Windshields that contain cracks in the line of vision will need to be removed and have new glass installed. And leaking fuel system components will require new parts to ensure that fuel does not escape and cause potential hazards. Our ASE Certified technicians have the knowledge and training to be able to identify problematic components during these tests and determine whether or not they meet the safety standards set out by the state of New York.
If you aren’t sure that your vehicle will pass a state inspection, or if there is something visibly wrong with your vehicle, have a professional diagnose the problem and provide service solutions beforehand. Scrambling at the last minute can cause additional stress, and you may require replacement parts that can take time to come in. To make sure that your vehicle is ready to be tested or to schedule your annual test, give us a call at (631) 321-5209 to book, or use our online scheduling system.
