  • Vehicles registered in Texas will no longer need separate vehicle inspection sticker

    First time I heard about this.

    As of March 2015, vehicles registered in Texas will no longer need separate vehicle inspection and registration stickers. State lawmakers last year nixed the inspection sticker, citing the potential to reduce fraudulent tags.

    Inspections are not going away, however. The change is simply issuing the two stickers separately, Texas DMV director Whitney Brewster told a state senate committee on Monday. Now to re-up registration, a driver must submit their car for inspection not more than 90 days before they renew.

    Me too. Good news I guess unless you drive a box.

      That sucks - no more adding an extra month to the inspection period by waiting till the next month to get it inspected.

        What does an inspection consist of?

          Oddly enough that was my first thought as well...

            As long as you're not in a metro area: working lights, horn, wipers, and mirrors along with no broken windshield. There is a braking distance requirement, but that never seems to be tested. If you are in a major metro with EPA restrictions, then there is also an emissions test.

              Apparently they also check if your rear license plate is adequately illuminated. Cost me $15 to fix a light bulb last month...

                Colorado used to have annual Safety Inspection requirements. Your car was inspected at “Certified” garages (meaning it had a business license and a few tools) and for the most part with unqualified technicians. It was a lucrative revenue generating opportunity for the garages. It sounded good but it had little impact on the public’s safety.

                The safety check consisted of checking headlight alignment, brake pad materials, the exhaust for leaks, shock absorber functions, tire grove depths, functioning lights, and cracked windows.

                Since it has been eliminated traffic accidents and road related deaths have remained consistent.
