INSPECTIONS & EMISSIONS
INSPECTIONS & EMISSIONS
Some states require regular safety inspections and/or emissions inspections on cars and trucks. At Ernie's Local Automotive Service, we are well-equipped and trained to perform these inspections. Our technicians can also perform multi-point inspections on your vehicles as needed.
These are some of the inspection services we offer.
IL State Certified Emissions Repair Facility
A state certified emissions repair facility is a privately owned motor vehicle repair facility, licensed to repair emission-related failures. The repair facility must employ a CERT (Certified Emissions Repair Technician) who has passed a state-required training program. Ernie's Local Automotive Service is a IL state certified emissions repair facility. Contact us at 773-763-4488 or visit us today for emission-related repairs and services.
IL State Certified Emissions Test Facility
Did you know that the Motor Vehicle Commission requires you to take your motor vehicle for an emissions inspection every year? This kind of testing is administered through a network of privately owned (but certified) auto repair shops. The auto repair shops carry their official Test Center number. Ernie's Local Automotive Service is a IL state certified emissions test facility. At our auto repair shop, we can perform emissions testing on all eligible vehicles regardless of fuel type or model year. Visit our shop or call us at 773-763-4488 to make an appointment.

Larry and his crew are just fantastic, very reasonable. I can't say enough how completely satisfied I am. I will never go anywhere else!!!! What's more important is the honesty. To me that is everything!!!!

My family has trusted Ernie's Local Automotive to maintain vehicles for over 20 years. My father trusted their work and now I continue to trust their work. They know their business and are excellent in determining issues with your vehicle. As a family business, they care about their customers. The work is always above satisfaction and the customer service is unparalleled. Having poor experiences at other mechanics in the past when living out of state, coming home and taking a vehicle to Ernie's, you'll get honest feedback and assessment for your vehicle's health! I would 100% recommend Ernie's Local Automotive to anyone in need of vehicle maintenance.
