I just bought my very first boat... It has a tandem trailer rated for 6000 so it must get inspected in order for me to get registration done. DO any of you have a suggestion of where I can go for this?
Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Dan

Thank you Joe. I'm also new to the country... so I wasn't aware. Besides, recommendations never hurt anybody.

DFW is pretty big and traffic pretty bad. If you are wanting relevant locations for you, it might be better to specify a city or area. I could tell you where I went in Flower Mound, but if you are in Garland it would be a beating to get there.

Trailers with a gross weight exceeding 4,500 lbs. must pass an annual safety inspection. If its 4000lbs you dont need one.

If it is registered at 4000 GVWR, it does NOT need an inspection.

They send these notice's out to anyone with a tandem trailer - it is a blanket mail out - if on your identification tag , on the tongue .says less than 4500lbs, you don't have to get it inspected / Read the law , not what people say . Do what the law says and if it is over 4500 lbs . then you have to inspect it , otherwise forget it

It is by what is stated on your registration documents. If the trailer data tag differs from what is stated on your registration there are steps you can take to change it but if your registration says 4501 gross or more you have to have it inspected or they wont give you the sticker until you do.

Valvoline by RaceTrac on 407. It was quick and painless.
