That would be vastly easier to do if you provided an actual table definition (CREATE TABLE ...) for carActivities and car.  Can't even tell the date column(s) to use from what you posted.

The car table has the last date the task was performed.

What is that table's structure?  Is there an activity id on it as well?  Or are all the dates de-normalized into one row?

repeatNumber      int       (every 2 days, or every 2 years )
repeatCycle      int       (every 2 days, or every 2 years )
remindNumber      int       (every 2 days, or every 2 years )
remindCycle      int       (every 2 days, or every 2 years )

Please be more specific about these fields. What do they mean? Types of Units (minutes/hours/days/etc.)?

Still not enough details for a full answer:

repeatCycle is a unit it is measure on  (days,month,weeks,years )

But cycle is an int -- does 1 stand for day, or 100 or whatever?  No way for us to know what cycle code you assigned for what time period.

But something like below should be close and give you an idea on how to join:

SELECT c.*, ca.*
FROM dbo.car c
CROSS JOIN (
    SELECT DATEADD(DAY, DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, GETDATE()), 0) AS todays_date
) AS assign_alias_names
INNER JOIN dbo.carActivities ca ON
    ((ca.activityID = 2 AND todays_date = DATEADD(DAY, ca.remindNumber, DATEADD(YEAR, +2, c.regdate))) OR
     (ca.activityID = 3 AND todays_date = DATEADD(DAY, ca.remindNumber, DATEADD(YEAR, +2, c.emissiondate))) OR
     (ca.activityID = 4 AND todays_date = DATEADD(DAY, ca.remindNumber, DATEADD(YEAR, +2, c.inspectiondate))))
