Self-Service Kiosks

Self-Service Kiosks Installed in an Effort to Offer 24-Hour Convenience


We recommend that you wash your hands thoroughly and use hand sanitizer immediately after using the self-service kiosk.

Please note: Most newer gasoline and newer diesel cars and light trucks can be connected to the kiosk via a Diagnostic Link Connector (DLC). Some exceptions are listed here. Vehicles older may not qualify to take advantage of the kiosk test.

Get an E-Check at your convenience 24/7, with one of our self-service kiosks that have been added at 18 E-Check stations and 3 located near a BMV License Bureau throughout Northeast Ohio. These easy-to-use kiosks have step-by-step instructions appearing on the screen to walk you through the simple process of testing your own vehicle. Once testing is complete, the kiosk will print a vehicle inspection report that can be used for vehicle registration or plate transfer. The self-service kiosk is intended to be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide motorists with another testing option that fits their schedules.

Watch a How to Use the Kiosk Video

Note: The availability of the kiosk for testing for the next person - particularly during non-station operating hours - is highly dependent on the proper use of the kiosk by the previous motorist. If a customer does not return and properly reseat the bar code scanner and/or DLC diagnostic testing device to the kiosk after use, the kiosk will not be available for use by subsequent customers until a station employee can correct the misuse of the components during regular station operating hours. In this situation, the kiosk will display an “Out of Service” message.

Also note: If the vehicle VIN is manually entered, you may not be able to complete the test at the kiosk without the VIN being verified by a manager during regular station operating hours.

Important Information Regarding the Check Engine Light

If the check engine light has been turned off recently (within a week) because the battery was disconnected, vehicle repaired, serviced or the computer cleared with a scan tool, the vehicle may not be able to receive a test either at the kiosk or an inspection lane. The vehicle may first need to be driven through its drive cycle to ready the vehicle’s computer for testing. You can read the following for additional information on drive cycles and vehicle testing readiness:

OBD Readiness and Drive Cycle Information  

If the check engine light is on, you will still be able to test the vehicle, however, you will receive a failing test. The purpose for this would be to obtain the trouble codes for free which you or your mechanic can use to assist in the repair of the vehicle. The vehicle is allowed up to three free tests within a 365 day period. The fourth and any subsequent tests will need to be conducted at a full service station in an inspection lane and will cost $18 each time. Only one free passing test is permitted per 365-day period.

EZ Do-It-Yourself Steps

The inspection consists of three easy steps:

Step 1:

Scan your vehicle's VIN barcode, or enter it directly on the screen and verify or enter other vehicle information as necessary.

Note: If the vehicle VIN is manually entered, you may not be able to complete the test without the VIN being verified by a manager during station operating hours.

Step 2:

Connect the On-board Diagnostic (OBD) testing device to your vehicle’s data port.

Step 3:

Collect your Vehicle Inspection Report showing your vehicle’s information and the inspection results. If your vehicle passes, the inspection report may be used for vehicle registration or plate transfer. If your vehicle fails, you must return to a regular inspection lane during normal business hours for your re-inspection.
