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.

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.
