N.C. OBD II Re-Certification

This recertification course satisfies the four-hour emissions refresher course requirement for OBD inspectors whose license expires two years after the date it was issued. Successful completion requires a passing score of a written test and a hands-on test in which the student is required to conduct an emissions inspection of a motor vehicle. Individuals may apply to renew their license by filing an application with the DMV on a LT-310 Action Form for Inspection/Mechanic Certification.
