Driver’s will no longer be required to get mechanical inspections for their vehicles. The Motor Vehicle Commission announced that as of Aug. 1, mechanical inspections will no longer be required. New Jersey becomes one of 30 states to follow this type of a policy. New car purchases will be able to wait five years to get an emissions test as well; all other emissions testing will continue as normal. If a vehicle was rejected prior to the Aug. 1, it will still need to pass a mechanical inspection to be legal to drive.
