This tractor-trailer certification is offered in partnership with Lehigh Career & Technical Institute.

Course cost and registration information can be obtained by calling 610-799-1345.

Pennsylvania State Inspection Certification

The College is authorized by PennDOT to administer an approved course of instruction to prepare, test, and certify automotive technicians for the Pennsylvania State Inspection Program.

NOTE: The Baseline exam must be completed by every new applicant who does not currently hold a valid state inspection license. The Category 1 exam covers cars, light trucks and light trailers. The Category 2 exam covers motorcycles and the Category 3 exam covers heavy-truck and heavy trailers. The fee covers one category only. Additional categories are also available for an additional fee and may be taken concurrently with the basic course or at a later date following completion of the basic course. If you wish to take any of these categories in combination, you must use a separate course reference number (CRN) for each when registering.
