Texas Vehicle State Inspections 

Getting  your vehicle’s state inspection at Caliber Auto Care is quick and convenient. Our teammates always provide exceptional service to get you back on the road, so you can get back to what matters.

Turn to us for state inspections

A state inspection evaluates all of your car's safety systems including:

  • Brakes
  • Steering
  • Tires
  • Exhaust
  • Lights
  • Horn
  • Mirrors
  • Seat Belts 
  • Windshield Wipers

Texas drivers must show valid proof of insurance to complete a state inspection.

Two steps. One sticker.

Your registration sticker serves as combined proof of registration and inspection and requires two steps to renew.

Step 1: Visit your nearby Caliber Auto Care within 90 days after your sticker expires to have your car inspected by our technicians. 

Step 2: After your vehicle passes inspection, renew your registration online, by mail or in person and your inspection status will be verified electronically. In order to remain in compliance with the Texas Department of Public Safety, your vehicle must pass inspection within 90 days after  the current year’s expiration date.

When does your vehicle need to be inspected?

Texas requires a state inspection every year, with a five-day grace period after your car’s registration sticker expires. Just schedule an appointment and let us take care of the rest.

What happens if my car fails inspection?

If something needs to be fixed, a Caliber Auto Care technician will walk you through any repairs needed in order to pass inspection. Should your vehicle not pass the first time, retesting is free within 15 days. The best way to pass the inspection is to keep your car well-maintained and to make any necessary repairs.
