Texas State Inspection Overview

For many motorists, a TX state inspection is a two-part process that consists of the Safety Inspection and On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) Emissions Inspection.

Safety Inspection: The Safety Inspection includes checking your horn, windshield wipers, mirror, steering, seat belts, brake system (parking brakes beginning with 1960 models), tires, wheel assembly, exhaust system (beginning with 1968 models), exhaust emission system, beam indicator (beginning with 1948 models), tail lamps, stop lamps, license plate lamp, rear red reflectors, turn signal lamps (beginning with 1960 models), head lamps, motor/serial or vehicle identification number (VIN), gas caps (on vehicles 2-24 model years old), window tint

Emissions Inspection: During the Emissions Inspection, special equipment is used to read your OBD. If you're within legal emission levels, then your vehicle passes the test.
