Default Inspection of wife's car for out of state registration

My wife has a car that the tag is out and it needs renewed. The car is registered in NC and requires emissions. I am in the Army stationed in Alaska and my place of residence is NC. I recently received a citation and have to produce a copy of the registration to APD. Can I get an emissions inspection locally and send it to NC? What do I need to get a tag and registration in AK? Any help/advise will help. Thanks in advance.....

generally you can contact your home state DMV and provide proof that you are stationed out of state but retaining your NC residency. they will generally have a form you can fill out and send in that will provide you with an exemption from emissions testing until you return home.

Thanks, we will call tomarrow and see. I know in NC we can inspect vehicles for other states using NC DMV computer system, not sure about Alaska's emissions....

Anchorage does not have an active emissions program. you probably can't get it inspected unless the referee station is still open.

just register it with an AK address. No inspection, done. Deal with home problems when you go back.

The referee station is no longer open. Some of the old employees bought it and turned it in to a repair shop.

When i had my trucks registered in NY years ago all i had to do was renew the registration over the phone. The NY DMV told me since i didn't live in NY and the vehicle wasn't driven in the state an emission/safety inspection was not required.

Now NC may be different but that has been my experience with it.
