check with your state. its different in some places.
i just got my truck registered back home in florida, where we dont have any inspection. all i had to do, was get insurance, and file for my tags. no emissions, no inspection, no problems.
in connecticut i had to get insurance(got it over the phone), then get it inspected and emissions tested, then file for my tags.
check with your county or state website. the dmv will tell you, or better yet just call your insurance agent.
congrats on getting yer license anyhow. drive safe.
