Drivers are required by law to have their vehicles inspected annually. During these inspections, the mechanics are looking for certain things that are necessary for a vehicle to be considered road worthy. These inspections are mandatory not only for the safety of drivers, but for the safety of other motorists and pedestrians. In Virginia, those who are caught driving vehicles without valid inspection stickers are subject to fines and black marks on their driving records. An inspection is inexpensive, and it can actually save drivers money because they are alerted to problems early and have them repaired before they get worse and repairs are more costly.
When drivers visit an auto repair shop in Glendale, AZ, for a vehicle inspection, the mechanic will be looking for a number of different things, as required by law. These include brakes, parking brakes, headlights and other lights, steering, suspension, mirrors, horn, tires, windshield and other windows, windshield wipers, defroster, exhaust system, fuel system, air pollution control system, and license tags. They will also be checking for leaks, or unauthorized parts that have been added which may not be legal, such as certain amounts of window tinting. If there are any issues with any of these things, the vehicle will not pass inspection until the appropriate repairs are made.
When a vehicle passes the inspection, a sticker is placed on the inside of the windshield, and the owner receives a pink certificate. If the vehicle fails the inspection, a rejection sticker is issued, and the owner has 15 days to do the necessary repairs and have the vehicle inspected again. They may drive the vehicle during this time period. Vehicle owners can bring their cars to Dynasty Collision LLC., for auto repair in Glendale. AZ, as well as vehicle inspections.
There is one exception to the mandatory inspection law. Any antique vehicle that is at least 25 years old and is registered as an antique does not need to be inspected. It can’t be driven regularly, and can only be driven during special events, such as car club activities and parades. Drivers of these vehicles must stay within 250 miles of their homes.
