The requirements for a vehicle safety inspection are determined by the governing body of a province or state. As of now, 17 out of the 50 states are having an annual or biennial safety inspection and other 2 states require safety inspections in a case when there's transfer of ownership or registration and there's one state that requires safety inspections for newly arrived vehicles that were previously registered in another state. The purpose of these safety inspections is to make sure that every vehicle, currently on the road, is maintained for safe operation. The main goal of these inspections is to try to prevent vehicle failure on the road, leading to a crash that could result in an injury or even death. A lot of states that require safety inspections are in charge of designated inspection stations for such purposes. However, there are other states that allow safety inspections to be performed by independent repair shops with approval from the state DOT. We have staff members fully capable of performing vehicle safety inspections, as a verified state inspection station.
In most cases, annual or biennial safety inspections are authorized by states in order to make sure all driven vehicles are in good condition and safe to drive. The purpose of the safety inspection is to keep drivers safe by pinpointing problems that can cause an accident in the long run. A safety inspection consists of a lengthy examination of vehicle components in order to ensure that everything is in proper working order in various areas of the vehicle, including under the vehicle, in the interior, outside of the vehicle and under the hood. Those vehicles that fail to pass a safety inspection are immediately removed from the road.
