Vehicle Safety Inspections to Be Discontinued in Utah

In March, Governor Gary Herbert signed a bill that officially eliminated mandatory safety inspections for vehicles in Utah. This means that, as of January 1, 2018, vehicles in Utah will no longer need to be subject to certain safety protocols, in order to obtain registration.

Dealership Laws in Utah

Although Utah prides itself as being a state that is friendly to upstart businesses, that isn’t entirely true in every industry in the state, particularly if your business is selling cars. Utah is home to a set of uniquely odd regulations that make it difficult to start an auto dealership.

This is the freedom that is allotted to us by the open road and a good car, which is always at the heart of American mythology.
