Vehicle safety inspection requirements are determined by the governing body of a state or province. 17 of the 50 states have an annual or biennial safety inspection, while two additional states require safety inspections only prior to registration or transfer of ownership, and a third state requires inspections for newly arrived vehicles that were previously registered in another state. Vehicle safety inspections are a way to ensure that every vehicle on the road is maintained for safe operation. The purpose of state-mandated vehicle inspections is to try to prevent vehicle failure on the highway, which could lead to a crash that may result in injury or death. Many states that require vehicle safety inspections operate state-owned inspection stations for such purposes, but other states allow inspections to be done by private garages with approval from the state DOT. As a vehicle inspection station, we have staff members fully capable of performing verified state safety inspections.
Often annual or biennial inspections are mandated to ensure all vehicles driven on public roads are safe to drive and in good condition. The goal of the inspection is to keep drivers safe by catching any problems before they cause an accident. A vehicle inspection requires a lengthy examination of parts to make sure that everything is in working order in many different areas on the vehicle, including under the hood, in the interior, under the vehicle, and the outside of the vehicle on its bodywork. The mandatory safety inspection is designed to find any unsafe vehicles. Vehicles that fail to pass an inspection must be removed from the road.
