I'm glad we don't have inspection in FL.

I always think that way too. BUT, I'm starting to rethink it since I can't go one week without being behind someone with no brake lights. I would probably get fired for "overticketing" if I was a cop. I just passed a guy this morning driving with no hood and no front fenders. WTH?

Not sure how PA does it but other states tie the safety stations together in the same system. If one place... dealership or inspection shop fails it its in the system so even if you take it to a different shop they will fail it. Unless the dealership didn't submit the Vin #. Just a heads up

I am not sure what the problem is with spikes on the flares and I am not even sure what a windshield browel is. Is there a tint strip on the windshield you mean?

I am in PA too. I have nothing on the windshield but I have illegal tint on the front windows and have never had a problem at all. I've had the inspection done at dealerships as well as at chain mechanics. The only time I ever got a hard time was when my brakes were worn out.

They check to make sure all the lighting is working, check thicknesses on tires and brakes, then move onto the emissions portion. I don't think failures are recorded in a statewide system here. But to keep them accountable if they pass you they have to fill out your windshield tags and I think they have to put a unique number on it, and they have to keep a corresponding log with every tag they hand out. So you should have no problems trying again elsewhere.

I'd rather live with that then live with more government control. Little by little we lose more freedom with every restriction.

I think it is necessary but I think brand new vehicles should be exempt safety for the first 2 or 3 years of ownership. And with modern engine technology and reliability it is bullshit to require really extensive emissions testing on newer vehicles. If you have no codes and exhaust leaks you should be good to go but in this state you could pull up in a 2012 vehicle and they still have to plug the smog detector up to the tailpipe. That should not be necessary until cars are 5 or 10 years old.

For us the big deal is not the safety tag, it is emissions. These shops pay insane amounts of money for the equipment and have to pass the cost onto consumers. The safety inspection is like 15 bucks and just involves eye-balling a few things and running function checks. Emissions is usually 60 or 70. And it all must be done yearly.

To channel Arte, "verrrry interesting" the tests y'all endure yet, nobody mentioned Smog Testing like we have in California which is, I believe, our only government mandated test.


Bonnet and mudguards are not required, but a bumper is.

We used to have inspections. They eliminated it several years ago.

When we did have it, no place that sold vehicles could be an inspection station.
Most places it was just give them your five bucks and they slapped a sticker on it.

NJ has state run and funded inspection stations, and private shops can do it as well. They dropped the safety inspections a few years back, so now its just emissions.

New vehicle you have 5 years until you need emissions, then its every 2 years after that. Inspection is "free", but it comes from our registration fees that are freaking insane. I think my truck was $82 last year. Motorcycle registration was $65 and there is no inspection or emissions on that.

I am moving back to Maryland in December and I am dreading that ridiculous state..... Right now I am trying to figure out if I should try to keep my Florida registration as long as i can and possibly do a two year renewal or just bite the bullet and get everything swapped over to MD right when i get there.... MD SUCKS for laws, guns, trucks.... just about everything under Gov. Control.

Y'all could live in California, where the newly elected Democrat super-majority
has said they plan increasing registration fees by ten times.
