Safety Inspection Basics

The State of Texas requires passenger vehicles, motorcycles, and RVs to be inspected each year. What to expect during an inspection? When arriving at our station, our professionally trained inspector will meet you at your vehicle. While you sit back and relax in our break room, the inspector will follow a detailed checklist to evaluate your vehicle's compliance with state regulations. For passenger vehicles 1996 and newer, "On Board Diagnostics" equipment allows us to evaluate many of the inspection criteria from the computer system. For older vehicles, the inspector will drive onto a device called a Dynamometer (a platform with rollers) and will accelerate to 25 miles per hour in order to test the emissions from the vehicle. The inspector also performs a brake test to evaluate the condition and stopping power of your brakes (motorcycles and RVs may be driven by the vehicle owner). After completing the checklist, you will receive a Vehicle Inspection Report. If your vehicle passes inspection, come see us next year for your next required inspection. If the vehicle fails inspection, our inspector will help you understand the failure and action required. Once the correction is made, return to DEKRA within 15 days for a free re-inspection. And remember to check out our Inspection Tips page for some simple ways to prepare for your test and avoid common failures.
