How You Can Pass

Passing the brake & lamp inspection is important to not only your safety but also your ability to legally drive your vehicle on the roads of California. It’s important that you pass the inspection, and the best way to do that is to prepare. This allows you to catch problems before our testers do and ensures you are approved for driving, instead of needing to retest. Prior to your inspection, make sure you follow these preparation tips!

Check Your Lights

Before you take your vehicle in for testing, take the time to visually and physically test the variety of lighting systems found in your vehicle. Doing this gives you an opportunity to notice any issues that may not have been seen when operating your vehicle, whether that’s a dimly lit headlight or a cracked tail light. Along with that, make sure warning lights such as the turn signals and the hazard lights are functioning, as you can fail the inspection if either of those is malfunctioning.

Get a Brake Service

Although this is an obvious suggestion, people will be surprised by how often drivers will not take in their vehicle for a service prior to the state-mandated inspection. By doing this, you’re able to catch and fix any problem in your vehicle’s braking system before our inspectors do, which helps in your chances of passing. If you suspect any problem with your vehicle’s braking system — big or small — make sure you take it in for service and avoid a possible inspection failure!
