Not for certain but I believe the sniffer is only on 2000+ cars. This will vay by county though. I know they will do a visual for sure. I think you can search NC DOT website and find the info you need

From what i understood when i took my inspection classes, north carolina is doing away with all of the sniffer tests. all of the countys in nc are going to just the computer hook up inspection, but if you cut the cat off, it will throw a code, and it will not pass the computer inspection, and it wouldnt pass the visual inspection either.

Like he said, it varies by county. Some do sniffers, some don't. Weird.
