How to Pass Your Vehicle State Inspection

Passing a state inspection is a must if you want to operate a safe and reliable vehicle. State inspections are required by law to ensure you and others around you are safe behind the wheel. When your car is up to standards, you are not putting other people on the road in danger. Today, we will go over what state inspectors look at when you take your car in for an inspection. 

What Gets Inspected

There are several parts of your car that are inspected and tested during a Texas state inspection. These components need to be in safe working condition and must not interfere with the vehicle's drivability. Below are some of the categories that need to be checked off:

  • Lights
  • Windshield
  • Tires
  • Brakes
  • Steering
  • Alignment
  • Fluid Leaks
  • Seat Belts and Other Safety Items (Airbags, Horn, etc.)

Each of these items stand as essential to the safety and condition of your vehicle. If one of them does not pass inspection, the mechanic will mandate a repair or replacement to fix the problem so you can pass. If you fail the inspection the first time, you will need to revisit for another inspection. Once you pass, you will receive a sticker to display on your windshield.
