The Official State Inspection Station is a place to have your cars inspected. They are very quick as long as there is not a line on front of you and the guy seemed to know his job. The day that I went the only guy who was working was really rude. I asked a question and he was very short and unprofessional. I asked for a particular form to fill out and he again answered rudely. I think next year I will go somewhere else.
CONS: Rude Employee
