RALEIGH — The North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles will start enforcing new rules on inspections next week.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that enforcement will begin Aug. 1 on a law that blocks registration renewals for cars that have not been inspected in the past year.

The law was supposed to take effect last November, but the agency stopped enforcing the inspection requirements a few days after the law took effect because of several problems.

The biggest problem last year was enforcing the requirement involving cars of people who moved into the state or those who bought cars registered in other states.

Under a change signed into law earlier this month, cars coming into the state won’t have to be inspected until 12 months later, when registrations need to be renewed.
