Lycoming County

True but you still have to keep the vehicle within the former inspection guidelines or you can be cited for a violation.

Quote:Even with the enactment of these changes, motorists are still required to ensure that their vehicles are free from mechanical defects. A vehicle with mechanical or equipment defects may be cited by law enforcement.

Not all vehicles are exempt.


Quote:What vehicles do not have to be inspected?

Vehicles that do not have to be inspected include:
