Texas law requires that all vehicles pass an annual state inspection. Emissions testing may also be required. Service First in Spring, TX is a state-approved vehicle inspection station where unparalleled customer service is the rule, not the exception.

What Does Vehicle Inspection Involve?

Vehicle inspections ensure that all auto safety systems are working properly. A technician checks your brakes, steering and wheel assemblies, tires, exhaust system, exterior lights, horn, mirrors, seat belts, and windshield wipers. Some vehicles require emissions testing as well. A vehicle identification number (VIN) must be present somewhere on the automobile.
How Often Must A Vehicle Be Tested?

A state inspection is required every year with a 5-day grace period after the inspection sticker expires. Texas drivers must show proof of registration and insurance to obtain an inspection.
