Texas State car inspection

Vehicle Inspection

As an Official State Vehicle Inspection Station, we help keep your vehicle not only legal, but safe to drive.  Most vehicles in Texas are required to receive an annual inspection.

All Texas inspections include a comprehensive safety check; however some vehicles are required to have an emissions test in addition to the safety inspection. Diesel powered vehicles and motorcycles are exempt from the emissions standards, but are still required to have the annual safety inspection.
